How The Wild Turkey Got Saved From Extinction

© By Othmar Vohringer

It's not often that I post a video here on Wild Turkey Fever. However, this is a great video especially for the younger generation of hunters that grew up with plenty of wild turkeys. This has not always been the case. There was a time, not so very long ago, where the American wild turkey was headed for extinction. A few concerned hunters founded the National Wild Turkey Federation which has become since the biggest turkey conservation organization in North America with branches in Canada and Mexico.

The video shows the hard work and dedication it took to restore the wild turkey populations. Today thanks to avid turkey hunters and the National Wild Turkey Federation there are more wild turkeys in America, Canada and Mexico then at any time before. Enjoy.
