Our State Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. Goals

NWTF North Dakota will conserve or enhance 13,750 acres of wildlife habitat in the next decade.
NWTF North Dakota will recruit 300 hunters in the state over the next 10 years.
NWTF North Dakota will increase public hunting access by 2,000 acres in the next decade.
  • NWTF North Dakota partners with all levels of government wildlife agencies to improve the health of a variety of critical habitats, including grasslands, forests and riparian areas.
  • NWTF North Dakota works to increase hunter education and access opportunities.
  • NWTF North Dakota is actively building a mentored hunting program for youth and adults.

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.

North Dakota is part of America’s Great Open Spaces and America’s Crossroads. NWTF North Dakota is committed to improve forest health and water quality, and restore native prairies and grasslands.
