As a turkey hunting die hard I have very mixed feelings about the NWTF. I'm personally not a member at this time. Quite honestly, I dont believe the NWTF is doing much on the "conservation" side of things. By most accounts the restoration of the wild turkey is complete and the trap and transfer programs are done. Private land management and educated outdoorsmen have done more to boost the number of turkeys than the NWTF ever has.
Which begs the question, what are they doing now? The organization as I see it has reached a point where its almost solely about money and I just cant see where the $33M they made last year went. Until there is greater clarity where the monies are going I cannot participate.
