The following press release has been submitted to me by the NWTF.
The Missouri State Chapter of the National Wildlife Turkey Federation (NWTF) committed $215,000 this year to conservation, education, outreach and other projects in Missouri.
The chapter works diligently to conserve the wild turkey and preserve our hunting heritage.
The largest single commitment is more than $46,000 to fund habitat-related projects including equipment purchases, cost chare projects on private land, and contracted projects on state and federal lands.
The chapter allocated $38,400 to preserve our hunting heritage through its JAKES (Juniors Acquiring Knowledge, Ethics and Sportsmanship), Wheelin' Sportsmen and Women in the Outdoors outreach programs, National Archery in the Schools program, 4-H Shooting Sports, the National FFA Organization and more.
