NWTF's Senior Vice President of Conservation Programs, James Earl Kennamer, Ph.D, predicted more conservation triumphs for South Dakota and other areas across North America.
"By custom-tailoring our plans on a state, regional and national basis, we will make our teamwork as effective as possible and provide the most benefits for wildlife and outdoor enthusiasts alike," said Kennamer. "The North American Wild Turkey Management Plan is our road map to conservation success."
The NWTF will continue to work with state wildlife agencies, the USDA's Forest Service and Natural Resources Conservation Service, the U.S. Department of the Interior's Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and numerous other partners to maintain wild turkey habitat on millions of acres of public and private properties across North America.
"The NWTF's long-term relationships with these partners were key to the restoration of the wild turkey across the U.S., and having them on board is a blessing for the wild turkey's future," Kennamer said.

Their population fell to an estimated 30,000 to 150,000, and those birds primarily lived in remote areas where people couldn't get to them, said James Earl Kennamer, chief conservation officer for National Wild Turkey Federation, a South Carolina-based conservation nonprofit.
The turkey is the most successful wildlife restoration project ever, he said. Every state except Alaska, where there are no turkeys, now has turkey hunting seasons.
Alabama and Texas each have about 500,000 of the birds, Kennamer said.
Kennamer said it's true that turkeys can be a nuisance, but that studies show that deer, raccoons and other animals cause more damage. The turkey is more visible, however, because it's active during the day while those other animals come out at night, he said.
