Wednesday, 13 January 2016

35th Annual RendezvousJoin us for this historic celebration as the Pere Marquette chapter of the MWTHA presents the 35th Annual Wild Turkey Hunter's Rendezvous & State Calling Championships. Thirty five years is quite an accomplishment, and this will be quite an event.

The event takes place in Baldwin, MI on Saturday, March 26th, 2016. It is the largest gathering of turkey hunters in Michigan.

The day's events begin at 9am at the Baldwin High School (map) (doors open at 8 AM).  There will be vendor exhibits, door prizes, calling and hunting clinics, gun and silent raffles. The Michigan State Turkey Calling Championships for both seniors and juniors will conclude the events at the high school.

Pigeon River County State ForestThe Pigeon River Country State Forest located in the northeastern portion of the lower peninsula is truly a very unique, publicly owned forest. Those who founded the Pigeon had a vision that it would remain as the last truly wild place in the lower peninsula of Michigan the BIG WILD. For over a decade the BIG WILD has been severely compromised by special interest groups and this is unacceptable to us.

 
Another Farewell - Don Minier PDF Print E-mail

Don MinierThis past March fellow member and great supporter Don Minier of East Leroy (Battle Creek area) passed away. Don was one of a very few who knew how to call up a gobbler during the very first days of turkey hunting. His reputation was well known among the rest of us would be turkey hunters. Don’s parents owned a restaurant north of Reed City in Osceola County and in the early days Don turkey hunted in this area. Each year he came to the Wild Turkey Hunters Rendezvous. If you attended our event Don met you at the door and was happy to collect your entrance fee.

 
A Michigan DNR Reinvented - Part 2 PDF Print E-mail

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the third article by John Gunnall that has appeared in Michigan Turkey Tracks. (CONTINUED...)

At least monthly the Michigan DNR has published a column entitled “Cuffs and Collars” describing its actions taken against persons committing illegal acts in each of ten separate regions making up our state. Regulations being violated by those who have no regrets and take no responsibility for obeying rules have always been the primary justification for having DNR enforcement officers.

Robert "Bob" JacobsonRobert “Bob” Jacobson of Roscommon and his wife Sheila are long time members of MWTHA. Bob is the president of the Michigan Conservation Foundation. Over many years the two organizations have joined forces to deal with many conservation issues. I know of no other person who is more dedicated to Michigan’s natural resources than Bob.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This article was written in May 2015 -  Bob passed away on June 14, 2015. He will be missed.

He and Sheila live on a lake in the middle of 18 square miles of private managed forests. If anyone had reason not to care about the public lands and waters of our state it would be them.
