The NWTF is a half million member grassroots, nonprofit organization with members in 50 states,
Canada and 11 other foreign countries. It supports scientific wildlife management on public, private
and corporate lands as well as wild turkey hunting as a traditional North American sport.
In 1973, the National Wild Turkey Federation was founded in Fredericksburg, VA, At that time,
there were an estimated 1.3 million wild turkeys and 1.5 million turkey hunters. Shortly after its
founding, the NWTF moved to Edgefield, S.C., where it is headquartered today.
Since 1985, more than $230 million NWTF and cooperator dollars have been spent on over 29,000
projects benefiting wild turkeys and other game and non-game species throughout North America.
Hunters have also benefited as the NWTF has worked tirelessly to support our hunting heritage
and protect and promote laws that increase hunting opportunity and safety.
