NWTF Florida will recruit 10,000 hunters in the state over the next 10 years.
NWTF Florida will open 90,000 acres of hunting access in the next decade.
  • NWTF Florida works with state wildlife agency partners to improve wildlife habitat in areas that need it most.
  • NWTF Florida commits resources to hunter education and mentored hunting opportunities to recruit the next generation of conservationists.
  • NWTF Florida believes in the important role hunters play in generating funds for wildlife conservation.
  • NWTF Florida works to increase access for hunters on public lands by working with state and federal agency partners to open more land to hunting.

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.  

Florida is part of America’s Southern Piney Woods. NWTF Florida is committed to increase habitat diversity, improve forest management and stop habitat loss.
