Turkeys For Tomorrow FAQS

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Turkeys For Tomorrow?

In short, Turkeys For Tomorrow is a collection of motivated turkey hunters determined to not sit idle while concerns about our beloved resource build. TFT is not only an organization that is dedicated to saving the wild turkey, it is one that promotes conservation, ethical hunting, and the mentoring of future hunters of tomorrow. Through collaborative work with various state wildlife agencies, private landowners, and other non-profit organizations TFT hopes to provide sound and effective solutions to current problems the wild turkey faces. TFT will always put the wild turkey at the forefront of the organization.

How is TFT different from the NWTF?

We are separate organizations with the same goal, putting more turkeys on the ground. But as with any 2 entities, we may go about the process a bit differently- it's actually inevitable. We have different people making decisions. Think the old adage "there's more than one way to skin a cat". While both organizations have already shown to work cohesively in funding common ground projects, there may be areas where each organization may feel the need to focus more attention separately. In other words, while one may be paddling the boat the other may be erecting a sail- the end result is the vessel moving forward at a quicker pace ensuring we all enjoy the wild turkey for many tomorrows to come!

Does TFT compensate the Board of Directors?

Board members are not compensated and are on term limits. The board members volunteer their time and efforts solely to help the wild turkey. 

Why should I choose to become a member?

Members make our mission possible - a fact we'll never forget. We value you above all else, we were founded on the backs of turkey hunters and intend to remain loyal to the turkey hunters we all share the woods with.

How Much is it to join TFT?

Annual membership starts at $50. That dollar amount best helps us help the wild turkey.

Your donation does not go unnoticed and it is our mission to keep you, the members, informed along the way!

Does TFT pay anyone for endorsement?

TFT does not pay anyone to endorse our organization. We are proud to boast several influential persons who are doing this solely because of their love for the resource.

What is TFT doing for wild turkeys?

TFT maintains the wild turkey as the number one priority. We're working to improve turkey habitat, focusing specifically on nesting & brooding cover. This involves forestry, landscape management, and predator control, all supported by sound scientific field research. We are actively funding wild turkey research across the country to continue answering questions about declines and overall management practices. Our biggest outreach platform for our membership is the Wild Turkey Science Podcast.

How can I get TFT in my state?

If you are interested in starting a chapter in your area please complete a TFT Chapter Application!

If you are simply interested in getting research or habitat improvement projects in your local area we have a clause in our bylaws that states that anyone who raises $25,000 in their state can choose for it to stay in that locality to benefit wild turkeys in your state.

How do turkey hunters help the effort?

No other segment of society has contributed as much to the conservation and management of wildlife as hunters have, and they continue to do so. Dollars raised and spent by hunters have maintained and/or enhanced millions of acres of wildlife habitat, for literally thousands of species, the majority of which are NOT hunted, fished for, or trapped. Hunting opportunities for wild turkeys and other wildlife accrue ONLY as a result of sound, science-based conservation programs and strategies.

I own land and I want to work on improving the habitat. Who can I talk to about this?

We are proud to partner with several specialists who work across the country. Tell them TFT sent you!
Interested in learning more about wild turkeys and habitat contact one of our staff that can help guide you in the correct direction.  We have a certified wildlife biologist on staff, who can provide technical assistance.
