Dear Friends and Fellow NWTF Members,

With Hunting Seasons upon us I would like to Wish you a safe and successful Season and urge you to Consider Introducing Someone to this sport we love so much in the upcoming year as part of our new save the Hunt Goal to create new hunters. 

 I have just returned from the State Chapters President’s Workshop at our National Headquarters in Edgefield, South Carolina. While I was there I attended Meetings around our new initiative Save the Habitat Save the Hunt ,  and the unveiling of the plans for the new Outdoor education center and shooting complex in Edgefield SC, with Construction well underway  we toured the site and it will be an Impressive complex all funded by private Donations with no money raised at Banquets being used.

 As part of the Save the Habitat focuses on improving the Habitat on private land I would like to encourage you to take advantage of our spring seed subsidy program and the conservation seed program which provides corn seed a to leave standing to provide winter food for wildlife to help improve the habitat in your area. this is one of the benefits of being a member of the NWTF.I would also encourage you to attend your local Banquet and to get involved with your local chapter to help preserve this sport we love so much.

Good luck this season and safe hunting,

Bill Wilbur

President, NWTF-NY State Chapter
