NWTF - Pennsylvania State Chapter

National Wild Turkey Federation
Pennsylvania State Chapter

Acres conserved: 526,448
Dollars invested: $24,228,919
Members: 13,597
Chapters: 94

The Pennsylvania State Chapter was established in 1975 and worked with the state's game commission to restore the wild turkey, a process that was completed in 2003. The chapter now focuses on meeting the challenges presented by declining brood-rearing habitat, increased development and the erosion of our hunting traditions.

NWTF successes in Pennsylvania
Invested $2.6 million to improve more than 270,000 acres of state game lands and state forests.

Invested in three major research projects: hen survival and productivity; gobbler harvest rate; and hen survival and fall harvest rates.

Helped pass legislation reducing barriers to youth hunting.

Helped open more than 27,000 acres of public hunting land in Pennsylvania since 1985.

Immediate challenges!
We must raise $1.3 million in the next three years in Pennsylvania to improve habitat for wild turkeys and other wildlife and to protect hunting.

Increased development: We must acquire 20,000 acres of public lands to counter development.

Declining brood-rearing habitat: We must create 600 acres of critical brood-rearing habitat per year to counteract development and the aging of forests.

Conservation education: We must educate the public about the role of hunters in conservation and increase hunter numbers in Pennsylvania.

Protecting firearm rights: We must protect our right to hunt and bear arms, which is under attack every day.
