Our State Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. Goals

NWTF Texas will conserve or enhance 100,000 acres of wildlife habitat by the end of 2019.
NWTF Texas will recruit 10,000 hunters in the state by the end of 2019.
NWTF Texas will open 40,000 acres of additional public hunting access by the end of 2019.
  • NWTF Texas and its partners have identified the most critical areas of habitat in the state. They are actively managing that land for the future of the wild turkey.
  • NWTF Texas and its partners recruit hunters and conservationists through hunter education and mentored hunts.
  • NWTF Texas supports public hunting access through lease programs, staying current on legislative issues that impact hunter access and working with landowners to garner access 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.

Texas is part of America’s Western Wildlands, America’s Great Open Spaces and America’s Southern Piney Woods. NWTF Texas is committed to improve forest health and water quality, stop habitat loss, increase habitat diversity and restore native prairies.
