Louisiana

Our State Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. Goals

NWTF Louisiana will conserve or enhance 10,000 acres of wildlife habitat in the next decade.
NWTF Louisiana believes the future of hunting and conservation rests in recruiting more hunters.
NWTF Louisiana understands public access to hunting grounds is critical to the future of our sport.
  • NWTF Louisiana works with state, national, timber industry and Army land partners to improve wildlife habitat and open access to hunting.
  • NWTF Louisiana educates private landowners on best wildlife habitat practices and helps them obtain take advantage of cost-share programs offered through the government.
  • The Louisiana Hunting Heritage program matches experienced hunters with people who’d like to learn about hunting to tech them the skills necessary to hunt independently.

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.  

Louisiana is part of America’s Southern Piney Woods and America’s Mid-South Rebirth. NWTF Louisiana is committed to stop habitat loss, improve forest management, increase habitat diversity, improve water quality and maintain healthy hardwood forests.
