NWTF CEO Chats with GoWild About the Importance of Mentorship & the Future of Conservation

“It’s a meaningful process. It’s so rewarding to go out and see people who want to harvest their own food, have a low carbon footprint and know where that food comes from.”

– Becky Humphries, CEO National Wild Turkey Federation

The Chief Executive Officer of the National Wild Turkey Federation recently sat down with Brad Luttrell, the Co-Founder ofGoWild and host of the Restless Native podcast, to chat. She’s been a critical leader in NWTF’s Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative. She’s also a tremendous advocate for R3, that’s the recruitment, retention and reactivation of hunters.
