Since the NWTF was founded in 1973, more than $224 million NWTF and cooperator dollars have been spent upholding hunting traditions and conserving more than 9.6 million acres of wildlife habitat. The work of the NWT’s dedicated volunteers and supporters is paying off. In 1973, there were an estimated 1.3 million wild turkeys and 1.5 million turkey hunters. Today, there are an estimated 7 million wild turkeys and approximately 3 million turkey hunters.
