NWTF Calling Contests

Recognized as the leader in wild turkey conservation and hunting, it's only natural that the Federation also serves as the leading sanctioning-body for turkey calling contests. Attend a local or state calling contest where you can compete yourself or cheer on your favorite contestant. For more information on NWTF Calling Contests, or to host your own NWTF Calling Contest, contact the NWTF at 1-800-THE-NWTF or cpiltz@nwtf.net.

NWTF Landowner Workshops

Ask any wildlife biologist what it takes to keep wildlife healthy, happy and close to home, and they'll tell you it's all about having good habitat. Learn how to make your land suitable for wildlife by attending the National Wild Turkey Federation's Wildlife Habitat Management Workshop.

For more information on NWTF landowner workshops, contact the NWTF at (800) THE-NWTF or conservation@nwtf.net. Click here for a complete list of NWTF Landowner Workshops in Pennsylvania.

NWTF Shooting Events

It's only natural the NWTF is extremely involved in many local and national shooting events across the country. Whether it's shooting in an NWTF event in your hometown or attending the NWTF's nationally recognized Turkey Shoot, competitors have many opportunities to get involved through NWTF sanctioned shooting events.

Wheelin' Sportsmen Events

One of the NWTF's most promising partnerships, Wheelin' Sportsmen gives people with disabilities the chance to experience the outdoors. Whether it's for the first time or a reintroduction into outdoor activities, Wheelin' Sportsmen brings back the joy of the wild to those with disabilities.

Through events like Wheelin' Sportsmen's women's deer hunts, Does for Does, or Ultimate Team-Ups, which pair hunters with diabilities with experienced hunting companions, able-bodied persons can join in the fun of putting the outdoors back into a person's life.
