The more people that realize we have Eastern turkeys in Texas, the more light we can shine on the great work done by the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department and National Wild Turkey Federation-Texas to restore them.
And the more we can have opportunities to discuss the need for quality habitat for turkeys that benefits everything from whitetails to woodpeckers.
So, through the Higher Calling Wildlife® outreach, we have created a new Eastern Turkey Aware challenge token. If you have photographed eastern turkeys in East Texas or Louisiana on a game camera or by traditional photography, email the photos with the county or parish the photo was taken to [email protected].
We will send you one of these cool wooden challenge tokens and a special edition Higher Calling Wildlife turkey decal.
Thanks to the National Wild Turkey Federation-Montgomery County Chapter for their help on this project.
Additionally, the Golden Crescent of Texas Chapter of NWTF are doing a special photo contest for kids in Calhoun, Dewitt, Goliad, Gonzalez, Jackson, Lavaca, Refugio, and Victoria Counties.
It’s a way to inspire them to get out in nature and use photography to promote wildlife conservation.
