West Virginia

Our State Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. Goals

NWTF West Virginia will conserve or enhance 35,000 acres of wildlife habitat in the next decade.
NWTF West Virginia will recruit 10,000 hunters in the state over the next 10 years.
NWTF West Virginia understands public access to hunting grounds is critical to the future of our sport.
  • NWTF West Virginia improves wildlife habitat by expanding its conservation-based seed program for private landowners. It’s also working with state and federal wildlife agency partners on critical habitat projects.
  • NWTF West Virginia believes the future of hunting rests in opportunities. It’s committed to providing hunter education, mentored hunts and introductory programs to the shooting sports.
  • NWTF West Virginia is growing and wants you to learn more. Connect with an NWTF representative and get involved.

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.

West Virginia is part of America’s Mid-South Rebirth. NWTF West Virginia is committed to improve water quality, stop habitat loss and maintain healthy hardwood forests.
