Our State Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. Goals

NWTF Missouri will conserve or enhance 131,220 acres of wildlife habitat in the next decade.
NWTF Missouri will recruit 40,000 hunters in the state over the next 10 years.
NWTF Missouri will improve public hunting access by 2,000 additional acres in the next decade.
  • NWTF Missouri improves wildlife habitat by expanding its conservation-based seed program for private landowners. It’s also securing grant money and strengthening partnerships to do more work on behalf of wildlife.
  • NWTF Missouri works with partners to open lands currently closed to hunting, including public lands and expanding urban hunting opportunities.
  • NWTF Missouri supports firearm safety training and expanding current mentored hunting opportunities.

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.

Missouri is part of America’s Crossroads and America’s Mid-South Rebirth. NWTF Missouri is committed to improve water quality and forest health, restore native prairies and stop habitat loss.
