Welcome to the NWTF's New York State Chapter Web Site
Message From Our President
Dear Friends and Fellow NWTF Members,
I have just returned from representing the NY State Chapter at our National Convention in Nashville, Tennessee. What an experience that was, From the beauty of the Opryland Hotel, to the overwhelming amount of people attending the Convention and exhibit hall, plus listening to speeches from Will Primos and Wayne Lapierre, to attending the very moving Veterans Breakfast honoring our Veterans for their service. It is something that I would encourage everyone to try to experience.
While I was there I attended a lot of meetings about our new initiative called Save the Habitat Save the Hunt. You will hear more about this Initiative which will focus our efforts in the years to come. Given that our turkey population is at 20 year low and we are losing hunters faster than we can recruit them, this could not come at a better time, I am very excited about this Initiative as it will have state specific goals determined by the volunteers in our state to focus our efforts on.
