The National Wild Turkey Federation Hunting Heritage Banquet, held by the Richland Redneck Gobblers on February 20th in Delhi, was a tremendous success. The “Conserve, Hunt, Share” philosophy of the NWTF brought out hundreds to focus on the Share portion of the motto. After pledge and prayer, attendees enjoyed a delicious meal while sharing stories of the past with anticipation of the upcoming turkey season. Terrific silent auction items were bid upon while others placed their raffle tickets on chances to win larger items. Raffle and auction items included several guns, hunting supplies packages, portraits, and pictures among many others, and were given away with intent on raising more money to support further projects, including habitat enhancement, education, youth, hunting heritage, hunter safety, turkey restoration, women’s programs, reward programs, land purchase, research, wheelin’ sportsmen and more.
