NWTF Gives Turkeys

The Camas Prairie Turkey Trackers chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation picked up 52 turkeys from Cash & Carry Market on Dec. 9, as part of the club’s traditional gift to local people in need. “National- and state-level funds are frozen this year, but the local club was able to do this again this year out of the funds we have for starting up every year,” organizer Tammy Nail said. “We’ve usually been able to give 50 turkeys, we did 51 last year, and we were able to add another turkey this year.” Pictured (from left) are members of the club committee that organizes the giveaway Pres Funkhouser, Nail, Ed Eckert and George Fischer, and Cash & Carry proprietor Jim Schmidt.
