The Montgomery County, Texas Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, which raises funds to preserve hunting traditions and share the importance of family values while conserving wildlife and their habitat. A significant fact is that 85 cents of each dollar raised goes directly to benefit turkeys somewhere in the U.S. and over 60 cents of every dollar raised in Texas for turkeys stays right here in our great state.

Since 1985 NWTF successes in Texas include having invested more than $3.8 million in wild turkey restoration efforts; spent $615,000 to manage more than 10,000 acres of wildlife habitat on public and private land; partnered on a $2.75 million effort to control invasive species and improve 92,000 acres of riparian habitat; and spent $715,000 educating youth and the public, and hosted more than 300 outreach events.

The NWTF is a national, non-profit, educational, conservation organization comprised of state and local affiliates working for the restoration and wise management of the American wild turkey. The primary goal of the NWTF is to promote public awareness of, and support for, wild turkey conservation programs on public, private, and corporate lands.
