Our Lifestyle in Print

The  NWTF’s commitment to providing relevant content to our members continues today with Turkey Call and JAKES Country magazines. In them, we celebrate conservation successes, the outdoor lifestyle, the dedication of hundreds of thousands of volunteers and the unwavering support of our many partners.

Turkey Call

The NWTF has undertaken a massive rebranding effort to appeal to turkey hunters new and old. It should be easily recognizable, beginning with this issue and a shift from Turkey Country to Turkey Call on the magazine masthead, along with an improved look and feel to the publication – from the quality of the paper to the design of each page. For more than three decades, Turkey Call graced the front of the NWTF’s official publication, and we felt it was the right time to bring it back with a facelift that fits the future direction of the NWTF.

These are all significant changes, but the content within the magazine continues to focus on what’s important to conservationists and turkey hunters – habitat management and conservation work, topics related to wild turkey research and education, hunting, food and the pursuit of the great outdoors. You’ll notice a new tag line, “Healthy Habitats. Healthy Harvests.,” that illustrates the importance of each element to our two main loves: conservation and hunting. Those two are entwined and cannot exist without the other.
