Each year we sponsor an essay contest in our home town school of Altoona-Midway Junior High. The contest is held during the first part of March and the winner is announced after Spring Break. The writer of the best essay receives a free guided turkey hunt for one bird up to two days.
Past Winners are:
- Ethan Walker 2004
- Ely Walker 2005
- Laura Erbe and Alex Walker 2006
- Colton Browne 2007
- Ted Angleton 2008
- Lindsay Walker 2009
- Dakota Carter 2010 - Watch Video
We also have sponsored hunts from two different individual couples, one from MN and one from MA. These are for individuals that are disabled or kids that are not fortunate to have anyone to take them or maybe from a one parent home, and the kid really shows an interest in the sport but has no way of ever getting to go.
