The Choctaw County National Wild Turkey Federation Hunting Heritage
banquet committee would like to express their appreciation to all
those that supported, attended and donated to their recent banquet.
A number of guns were won by area hunters including a youth gun that
was won by Ben Turnipseed. By including youth sized guns in the
program, young hunters are being taught the correct and safe use of
guns in hunting wildlife. Juli Hughes, JAKES coordinator and MSU
Extension Service agent, provide educational and safety materials to
youth and adults at the banquet. We are sure that Ben and his
daughter will enjoy many hours in the outdoors as she learns the
skills needed to be a safe hunter.
