About Last Chance Gobblers – The National Wild Turkey Federation
Our Mission Statement is : “The NWTF is dedicated to the conservation of the wild turkey and the preservation of our hunting heritage.” More recently, and even more in Montana, we are dedicating resources to overall habitat enhancement for all species. Our Montana specific goals is to enhance 35,000 acres of forested habitat, 5,000 acres of riparian habitat, open access to at least 20,000 acres, and recruit 500 new hunters over a 10 year period.
The NWTF is a national organization of over 225,000 members. We serve all over the country, as well as every corner of the Montana.
