Lynn Hagerman – President

Lynn Hagerman has been a member of the Red Dirt Roost Chapter of the Oklahoma NWTF, serving on the Chapter Board 13 years, as Banquet Committee Chair for three years and currently as chapter President.

I credit a rich farming background as my foundation in conservation and hunting. I learned my appreciation of the land and what it provides whether food or recreation at a very early age. Stewardship has been ingrained into me by generations of family who have cared for the land and enjoyed the fruits thereof. Working with local farmers in crop production has provided me the opportunity to encourage conservancy of local wild life and their habitats.

It is a pleasure to share my love of the outdoors and what it offers with my own grandchildren and other youth through the Jakes program of our local chapter. It is imperative that we share our knowledge and experience with youth to increase their interest in hunting. It is time to get them off the cell phones and back in the trees. I look forward to continuing my work with state leadership to enhance our rich conservation and hunting heritage.

Earl Gilbert – Vice President Board Member

Earl Gilbert lives in Chouteau (Mayes County) in northeastern Oklahoma. He serves as the Banquet Chairman for the Mays County Longbeards and the Treasurer for the Green County Strutters. In addition, he helps other Chapters set up banquets and runs games across the state.

Earl first become involved in the NWTF at his first banquet in 2010 and became a committee member the next year. He became interested in serving on the State Board in 2015 when encouraged to run for office by fellow NWTF members. His accounting and finance background in the corporate world have provided a platform to help the board achieve its goals.

Earl’s vision for the state is to see Oklahoma become one of the premier turkey hunting states in the nation and he sees the various programs promoted by the NWTF as a roadmap to the Sooner state becoming a destination state for turkey hunters. His message for hunters is that the NWTF is the largest conservation group in the country and the organization works closely with many of the other conservation groups to accomplish all our goals.

Chad Parky – State Board Member-Secretary

Chad has been an active member of the NWTF since 2006. He was instrumental in starting the Owasso Area Chapter of the NWTF, and is a member of the Tenkiller State Park WITO committee, The Oklahoma Hunting Heritage committee, and the Grove NWTF committee.

He works closely with the Oklahoma R-3 program coordinator recruiting and educating hunting mentors.

Chad’s role in the Oklahoma NWTF is to educate those interested in learning the ins and outs of the outdoors. His goal is to provide enough information and real-life experience to as many people as possible so that they have enough knowledge and confidence to be comfortable in going out into the field on their own.  In addition, his ultimate goal is for the people he helps plant the seed in hunting to mentor someone else.

Chad had a great hunting mentor and believe that passing our hunting heritage on to whoever is interested is his passion and duty. Along with his passion for our hunting heritage and bringing new hunters into this way of life, he is also dedicated to passing on education, conservation, hunter ethics, and habitat management to anyone that is interested.


Michael Westmoland – Board Member

Michael Westmoland has been a member of the 4-Corners Gobblers Committee since 2007, served at various Jake and WITO Events as Committee Member and has been involved in mentor training.

Before becoming a member of NWTF, my family was always hunting and fishing. Quail hunting was always a family outing growing up. As kids our family vacation during the summer was always a fishing trip somewhere in Oklahoma. When I became a dad and husband my family continued to hunt and fish. One of my fondest memories was a few years ago when my son and I killed our 1st double on a turkey hunt. Another special memory was when I first started turkey hunting, I killed a big turkey with a triple beard. As a family we love the outdoors: camping, fishing, and hunting even if we don’t harvest. It’s just getting out as a family and enjoying the outdoors. It is a privilege to introduce new hunters of all ages to the sport of hunting.

I love what the NWTF stands for in conservation and Save the Habitat Save the Hunt. If we don’t take care of the wildlife and outdoors it will not be here for the future. The more involved I am with the NWTF the more I enjoy being a part of something that has real value in the outdoors of Oklahoma.

As a team player, I am open to new ideals and challenging projects we face in the NWTF. I see the future of the NWTF doing more Mentor hunts and Save the Hunt Save the Habitat youth events. Also working together with new committees to have the best banquets they can have. Each committee helping other committees to raise more money for NWTF Oklahoma, not competing. Another area would be working more with Oklahoma Dept of Wildlife Conservation and other partners to restore and improve Oklahoma’s Outdoors.
