Juniors Acquiring Knowledge, Ethics, and Sportsmanship
One of the most exciting programs at the National Wild Turkey Federation focuses on young people. JAKES is dedicated to informing, educating and involving North America's youth in wildlife conservation and the wise stewardship of our natural resources. With the growing number of turkey hunters, the JAKES program is also designed to help pass on the traditions of hunting with a strong eye toward ethics and safety. Increasing numbers of young people are learning to hunt without the benefits of an older mentor. To help address this situation, the NWTF has strengthened its commitment to the JAKES program.

Viewing our natural world through the eyes of a child will bring fresh, new appreciation for why we are so dedicated to conserving our natural resources. The spirit of conservation and the tradition of hunting have been passed from one generation to another in this country for centuries. The NWTF JAKES program will help keep this legacy alive as we continue to educate our youth.
