Our Programs

The NWTF in Texas has an incredible mission, a history of success and most importantly, an incredibly bright future. As the conservation organization that collaborated with wildlife agencies across the country to restore the wild turkey, we are building on our past success and forging paths to make a greater impact nationwide.

Similar to a stream that passes through the Hill Country, we, too, are picking up momentum as we work to Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. At the halfway point of the 10-year initiative, we are achieving our goals and more, but there is still much work to do.

Dorothy McCarver, Texas

At our chapter's first WITO event ten years ago, I shot a shotgun for the first time. I was 49 years old. A few months later, my husband gave me a 20-gauge Red Label Ruger Over/Under shotgun for my 50th birthday. I am now approaching my 60th birthday and enjoy competing in skeet, trap and five-stand competitions and have become a certified shotgun instructor and help coach our county's 4-H Shooting Sports Project group. Three more shotguns have been added to my gun collection. My granddaughter calls me "Shotgun Granny!"

Dale Bounds, Texas

I've been turkey hunting for 25 years, and have considered myself a wild turkey freak for 15 years. The anticipation of closing the deal while hunting a gobbler is about all I can stand!
