The NWTF is a nonprofit conservation organization with nearly a half million members and 2,350 chapters across the United States, Canada and several other foreign countries. The Federation has worked with its volunteers, partners and wildlife agencies to restore wild turkey populations to 49 states and in parts of Canada.

Bass Pro Shops is a dedicated supporter of NWTF’s Women in the Outdoors, JAKES, and Wheelin’ Sportsmen outreach programs.

“Bass Pro Shops has been a great partner to the NWTF,” stated George C. Thornton, NWTF CEO. “We are very excited about the opportunity Bass Pro Shops and Johnny Morris has given us to have the NWTF logo in front of millions of race fans across the country.”

In 2006, Johnny Morris was awarded the NWTF Lynn Boykin Hunting Heritage Award for his dedication to conservation, as well as securing the future of hunting for others. Bass Pro Shops was honored by the NWTF with the 2005 Corporate Achievement Award for their dedication to conservation and the NWTF.
