Wild Turkey Federation Banquet Set For June 12 In Socorro

Mountain Mail reports

The San Agustin Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation is holding its Fifth Annual Hunting Heritage Banquet Sunday, June 12, at Rancher’s Steakhouse.
Kevin Carson, one of the organizers, said the evening will feature games, raffles, auctions, and prizes.
“This year’s banquet will have some excellent framed art works, sculptures, jewelry, camping and hunting gear, seven guns, and hunts,” Carson said. “Most of all, lots of fun and a delicious meal.”
Door prizes will be given out through the evening.
Proceeds from the verbal and silent auctions, various raffles, and other games will go toward the conservation of the wild turkey and other wildlife and their habitats, he said.
In a press release, Chapter Chair Carlos Madril said the Hunting Heritage banquets are the means by which the National Wild Turkey Federation and its volunteers raise money for its various programs.
As a result of last year’s banquet habitat projects were implemented on lands administered by the U.S. Forest Service-Magdalena Ranger District and the BLM Field Office. Other projects included the Annual JAKES Event (Juniors Acquiring Knowledge, Ethics and Sportsmanship); Conservation scholarships; Turkey Hunters Care Program; and helping to fund the Socorro County 4-H chapter.
The festivities begin at 5:30 p.m., with dinner being served at 7 p.m.
The cost is $40 per person, or $60 per couple. Existing members pay only $15
