Thanks to conservation efforts on behalf of hunters, more than seven million wild turkeys now roam North America, with huntable populations in every U.S. state but Alaska. According to the National Wild Turkey Federation, nearly three million sportsmen and women considering themselves turkey hunters, all paying taxes on their equipment and buying hunting licenses. The sport's continuing contribution to conservation cannot be overlooked. Since 1985, the NWTF's volunteers and partners have spent more than $372 million on projects to help wildlife agencies trap and relocate turkeys to areas of suitable habitat and improve the health of our nation's forests and woodlands.
