On Saturday, January 7th, CFM was honored to receive the 2016 Save the Hunt Award from the Missouri State Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF).
CFM is proud to represent our incredible partners, including NWTF, before our state’s elected officials. Each year, CFM works in support of legislation that will further our hunting heritage and against legislation that would be detrimental.
“The Conservation Federation is strong because of our partnerships, and NWTF is as strong of a partner as any organization could hope for. We are honored to be recognized for our work from such an outstanding organization made up of some of the finest and most important conservationists in our state,” said Brandon Butler, CFM Executive Director.
CFM has also been a key player in coordinating and participating in the annual mentored Governors Youth Turkey Hunt along with NWTF from its inception 8 years ago. This hunt
serves both as a celebration of Missouri’s leading role in providing outdoor recreational opportunity as well as recruiting and retaining additional outdoor enthusiasts.
“We in the National Wild Turkey Federation realize that the Conservation Federation of Missouri is the melting pot for all things conservation in Missouri. From being our watchdog in the capitol, to promoting the wide array of outdoor treasures we are blessed with in this state, the valued partnership we share helps increase the difference we make within the conservation community. We are especially grateful for the work they do daily in keeping us informed on issues that impact us and our ability to both Save the Habitat and Save the Hunt. CFM represents a true guardian of our outdoor life style,” stated R. L. Bennett, NWTF MO State Chapter President.
CFM is proud to be the “Voice for Missouri Outdoors,” and will continue to work for, and with, our affiliates to keep Missouri the leading conservation state in America.
