Our State Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. Goals

NWTF Massachusetts will enhance 600 acres of wildlife habitat in the next decade.
NWTF Massachusetts will recruit 2,500 hunters in the state over the next 10 years.
NWTF Massachusetts will open hunting access to 4,000 additional acres in the next decade.
  • NWTF Massachusetts introduces 12- to 14-year-olds to hunting, while working to break down barriers to hunting, including lowering the minimum age to hunt. They’re just as committed to mentoring new adult hunters as well.
  • NWTF Massachusetts supports active habitat management to maintain the state’s wild turkey population at 30,000.
  • NWTF Massachusetts is making the state’s habitat better for wildlife through conservation-focused seed programs, landowner education events and financially supporting state agency habitat enhancement projects.

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.

Massachusetts is part of America’s Colonial Forests. NWTF Massachusetts is committed to maintain healthy hardwood forests, stop habitat loss, increase habitat diversity and winter wildlife survival.
