North Carolina

Our State Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. Goals

NWTF North Carolina will conserve or enhance 200,000 acres of wildlife habitat in the next decade.
NWTF North Carolina will recruit 20,000 hunters in the state over the next 10 years.
NWTF North Carolina will open hunting access to 63,000 additional acres in the next decade.
  • NWTF North Carolina works with federal and state agencies, and other non-government groups, to increase hunting opportunities throughout the state.
  • NWTF North Carolina has made it a priority to acquire lands for hunting.
  • NWTF North Carolina partners with neighboring state NWTF chapters to make best use of resources to do most work on behalf of wildlife, wild places and hunters.

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 wildlife habitat needs.  

North Carolina is part of America’s Southern Piney Woods and America’s Mid-South Rebirth. NWTF North Carolina is committed to stop habitat loss, improve forest management, increase habitat diversity, improve water quality and maintain healthy hardwood forests.
