Our State Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. Goals

NWTF Mississippi will recruit 3,000 hunters in the state over the next 10 years.
NWTF Mississippi will create 20,000 acres of public hunting access in the next decade.
  • NWTF Mississippi holds field days for landowners to educate them on management practices that benefit the state’s wildlife, while helping them work toward their land-use goals.
  • NWTF Mississippi partners with the state wildlife department on critical habitat improvement projects.
  • NWTF Mississippi works with private landowners and other partners to open access to hunting, including more opportunities for youth and hunters with disabilities.

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.  

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