Local turkey banquet scores on hungry crowd

Conservation efforts aimed at the once-vanishing and venerable fowl were at center stage Tuesday when the Hopkins County Longbeards chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation hosted a Hunting Heritage Super Fund banquet.

The event began with doors opening at the Hopkins County Regional Civic Center at 6:30 p.m. and turkey dinner followed.

“The Hopkins Co. Longbeards Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation is one of NWTF’s newest chapters at two years old, yet our volunteers have made great strides in this short amount of time to be involved in the local youth and outdoor community,” wrote Dale Thompson, a member of the local chapter, in a memo annoucing the banquet. “Since our first Hunting Heritage Banquet last spring, which was wildly successful, we have made great strides in becoming an evermore present entity in in the evolution of outdoors and the heritage of hunting.”

“We raised an estimated gross amount of almost $20,000 through the live and silent auctions and raffles,” Thompson said Wednesday morning. “We hosted a estimated 100 people and gave away 13 guns.”
