Central Coast Chapters

The NWTF Central Coast is currently represented by the Atascadero Strutters Chapter. We have been involved in our community for eight years with activities like our annual Conservation Banquet, the DFW’s Women’s Pheasant Hunt and Junior Pheasant Hunts, a youth fishing day – now the “Dave McNamara Fishing Day”, an outreach booth at the California Mid State Fair, and the Women in the Outdoors weekend at the Camatta Ranch. The chapter meets the first Wednesday of the month at 6pm at the Atascadero Elks Lodge. All members are welcome and encouraged to attend. If you would like to be noticed by email about the meetings please provide your information under the contact tab. We always look forward to seeing new faces at our meetings!

Women in the Outdoors events are held across the country using experts and trained professionals to teach outdoor skills in a noncompetitive environment. The Women in the Outdoors program helps members develop outdoor skills and emphasizes the importance of wildlife management and the role of hunters in conservation.

More information will become available soon. Keep coming back for more updates. Or better yet, send us your email address and we will update you!

The MISSION of the Atascadero Chapter of the NWTF is the preservation of the Central Coast Wild Turkey and the Preservation of the Hunting Tradition

We will engage in local projects, partner with the Department of Fish and Wildlife, other not for profit organizations with similar goals and objectives, the National Forest Service, and any agency that can assist in our mission to preserve the Central Coast Wild Turkey population

 We will preserve and promote the Hunting Tradition by supporting the California Hunter Education program, provide quality mentored hunts for new hunters, encouraging women and our youth to spend time out of doors hunting, shooting, fishing, camping, hiking, kayaking, sailing, scuba diving, and to appreciate nature.

It’s an effort we must all stand behind to accomplish. Its success depends equally on unity and urgency. We must work together and we must do it now if we want to even begin to counteract the challenges to our lifestyle.

Conservation Banquet

Get ready for another FUN fundraiser to help Save the Habitat and Save the Hunt. This year’s event will be held on St. Patrick’s Day, Saturday March 17th, at the Madonna Inn.
