Chapter founder and long time president, Robby Robbins was recently honored by our chapter. A plaque and a blanket were given to him, honoring him for his many years of dedication both to our Wild Turkeys and to our chapter. The blanket was handmade by Mary May. Sewed on were the series of MWTHA patches.
It is mid January as I write this. Heavy snow came the first of December and then rapidly disappeared, leaving bare ground throughout Michigan. In just the past few says snow measured in inches has reappeared. Thus far our Wild Turkeys have been scattered over our 13 county chapter area and corn purchases have not been made. If future conditions warrant we will make those purchases.
Wow it’s already mid-January, and although it’s bitter cold today, we haven’t had any winter at all yet isn’t that great? With any luck at all, we’ll get through the rest of the winter as easily as we have so far, a blessing not only for all the birds out there, but also for the chapters that conduct winter feeding programs that are being confronted with unbelievably high corn prices.
