Millionaire Turkeys

The wild turkey is America’s latest millionaire.

National Wild Turkey Federation chapters in Texas and 15 other states have each spent more than $1 million on projects that benefit wild turkeys and other wildlife species. The NWTF distributes money from the superfund, which is administered jointly by the NWTF, its state chapters and their respective state wildlife agencies. Texas projects include eastern turkey restoration, habitat enhancement, equipment and education. For more information on the National Wild Turkey Federation, go to www.nwtf.org.
