Our State Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. Goals

NWTF New York will conserve or enhance 11,500 acres of wildlife habitat in the next five years.
NWTF New York will recruit 1,500 hunters in the state each year.
NWTF New York will open public hunting access by 15,000 additional acres in the next five years.
  • NWTF New York works with landowners and partners to restore its state turkey population through critical habitat work.
  • NWTF New York volunteers are providing more opportunities for hunter education and hunting opportunities for people of all ages and abilities.
  • NWTF New York actively seeks opportunities to open more land for hunting.

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.

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