Our State Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. Goals
- NWTF Illinois works to improve the quality of its forested lands and is actively seeking opportunities to restored additional acres to quality forest habitat.
- Only 3 percent of Illinois is publicly accessible. NWTF Illinois understands the need to open more acres for public hunting as they work to grow hunter numbers.
- NWTF Illinois creates hunters through mentored hunting events. The state is also committed to firearm safety.
At the National Wild Turkey Federation, the outdoors isn’t just what’s on the other side of the glass, it’s where we feel most alive. And we’re making America the best it can be for the people and wildlife who call it home. The NWTF has divided the country in six areas — America’s Big Six of Wildlife Conservation — to focus our effort on the most critical upland habitat needs.
Illinois is part of America’s Crossroads. NWTF Illinois is committed to improve water quality and forest health and restore grasslands.
