The Florida State Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) is made up of officers and a board of directors selected from NWTF local chapter members around the state. The roles and duties of the state chapter are consistent with that of the NWTF with a focus on local events and conservation projects around the state.
The National Wild Turkey Federation is a national nonprofit conservation and hunting organization that, along with its volunteers, partners and sponsors, has worked for the conservation of the wild turkey and preservation of the hunting tradition. When the NWTF was established in 1973, there were only 1.3 million wild turkeys. Today that number stands at more than seven million birds throughout North America, and hunting seasons have been established in 49 U.S. states, Canada and Mexico.
