Help support wild turkey conservation and have a great time by attending the Wild Turkey Super Fund Auction and Dinner, hosted by the Erath County Longspurs Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation Friday at City Limits. Doors open at 6 p.m. and dinner will be served at 7:30.

All ticket holders will be eligible to win prizes exclusive to National Wild Turkey Federation events. Place the highest bid and you could go home with sporting art, hunting guns, knives, calls, outdoor equipment and more.

Tickets are $45 for adults and $25 for students. Your membership will help the NWTF support wildlife management on public, private and corporate lands and preserve hunting as a traditional North American sport.

Since the NWTF was founded 31 years ago, more than $186 million NWTF and cooperator dollars have been spent on more than 27,000 projects benefiting wild turkeys throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico. The work of the NWTFs dedicated volunteers and supporters is paying off. In 1973, there were an estimated 1.3 million wild turkeys and 1.5 million turkey hunters. Today, there are more than 6.4 million wild turkeys and approximately 2.6 million turkey hunters.
