Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Come early to enjoy a social hour before the banquet begins. Families can play games and enter raffles to win a nice selection of guns. There also will be a silent and live auction for framed art, guns, collectibles, home furnishings, outdoor equipment and more. Purchase your ticket online at events.nwtf.org/1302010-2022 or call (618) 383-2004 to reserve your tickets prior to the event.
Tickets to the White Co. Wild Turkey NWTF banquet cost just $35.00 for adults. For only $270.00, banquet attendees can become a Sponsor Member. All ticket prices include admission, dinner and a single one-year NWTF membership.
Local and state NWTF chapters host thousands of similar events nationwide each year to raise funds that help conserve wildlife and habitat, and introduce new people to the outdoors. Many families enjoy hunting together and pass traditions on from one generation to another. Hunting also is important for the health of our nation’s wildlife and habitat because hunters fund conservation.

About the National Wild Turkey Federation
When the National Wild Turkey Federation was founded in 1973, there were about 1.3 million wild turkeys in North America. After decades of work, that number hit a historic high of almost 7 million turkeys. To succeed, the NWTF stood behind science-based conservation and hunters' rights. Today, the NWTF is focused on the future of hunting and conservation through its Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative. Since 2012, this 10-year initiative has already eclipsed goals of conserving or enhancing more than 4 million acres of essential wildlife habitat, recruiting at least 1.5 million hunters and opening access to 500,000 acres for hunting and other recreation opportunities. This critical work will continue to impact wildlife habitat and our great outdoors in the final year of the initiative. For more information, visit www.NWTF.org.
