About Us

When the National Wild Turkey Federation was founded in 1973, there were about 1.3 million wild turkeys in North America. After decades of dedicated work, that number hit a historic high of almost 7 million turkeys thanks to the tremendous efforts of our dedicated volunteers, professional staff and committed partners. The mission of the National Wild Turkey Federation is no less urgent today than when it was founded in 1973. What we do in the coming decades will be instrumental in not only enhancing wild turkey populations, but also in the continuation of hunting and quality wildlife habitat for countless species. We wish we were meeting in person in Nashville this year for our 45th Annual Convention and Sport Show, but are thankful that we have the opportunity to host the event virtually. Check out our website to learn more: https://www.nwtf.org/.
