One of the reasons is the National Wild Turkey Federation’s commitment to making hunter safety a top priority.

The result? The number of turkey hunting accidents continues to decrease even as turkey hunters flock to the woods in increasing numbers. Spring turkey hunting accidents have decreased from a high of 8.1 per 100,000 in 1991 to a low of 2.95 per 100,000 in 2002.
