Our State Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. Goals

NWTF Montana manages land for the betterment of wildlife wildlife.
NWTF Montana believes the future of hunting and conservation rests in recruiting more hunters.
NWTF Montana understands public access to hunting grounds is critical to the future of our sport.
  • If you enjoy wildlife, wild places and our hunting heritage, you’re in right place and with the right people.
  • NWTF volunteers and partners have an initiative called Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. with three national goals: conserve/enhance 4 million acres of critical wildlife wildlife habitat, recruit 1.5 million hunters, and open access to 500,000 new acres for hunting.
  • Join the ranks of thousands of NWTF volunteers — a winning team committed to saving what’s important to them and you. Ask your NWTF representative how.

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.  

Montana is part of America’s Western Wildlands and America’s Great Open Spaces. NWTF Montana is committed to improve forest health and water quality, restore native prairies.
