Grand River Long Beard’s Chapter of National Wild Turkey Federation Hosting Hunting Heritage Banquet

Doors open games-raffles-activities start at 5:00 PM with dinner at 6:30 PM. The event will occur at the Ionia K of C Hall, 115 S. Steele Street, Ionia, MI 48846.

We look forward to a bigger and better banquet this year. There will be several great gun raffles and many other games and prizes as well as the live and silent auctions. We will have several great vacation packages in our live auction this year! We have over $15,000 in Guns & Prizes this year! The future on hunting depends on you!

Our programs focus on wild turkeys, deer and other wildlife and the protection and enhancement of our unique habitat & hunting/shooting heritage. The latter distinguishes the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) from other conservation focused organizations.

The NWTF works at the national and state levels but the majority of our work is done locally and in Michigan. Your involvement is critical to sustaining and improving wildlife habitat and the future of our hunting/shooting heritage. Our chapter annually gives a graduating high school senior a NWTF scholarship at our banquets. We have several of our members participate in our NWTF Conservation Seed Program to provide critical habitat on private lands to sustain wildlife. The chapter also does a lot of habitat work on state land habitat projects using a 40 to 1 match dollar grants!
