NGO Programs

Only a few of the 42 non-government organization (NGO) members of the American Wildlife Conservation Partnership participated in the assessment, and only one provided responses to the detailed programmatic questions. While few in number, the NGOs that have active hunter access programs often provide an invaluable service to advancing the cause of improving hunter access by acting as a bridge between private landowners and government agencies. In addition, NGOs, in general, often provide valuable political support on a wide range of hunter access issues beyond having a physical hunter access program. The National Wild Turkey Federation was the only NGO that provided programmatic details on their hunter access program. A narrative summary of their program can be found in the NGO Results section of the full Hunter Access Program Assessment Survey Report.
