To all MWTHA members and interested friends:

It’s been a very long winter. Especially for our wild turkeys, which have had to withstand the coldest temperatures the state of Michigan has seen in many, many years. If you are helping our wild turkeys survive by feeding them, our hat is off to you and you have our deepest appreciation. Without our help, the wild turkey cannot survive the winters of northern Michigan.

To help the winter pass, once again plans are in the works for a variety of MWTHA banquets and spring hunting workshops – our primary fundraisers for our feeding programs, as well as another visit to a variety of outdoor shows. Be sure to attend these functions, details of which you’ll find on our site, and support your local chapter of MWTHA!

Everyone is reminded that it’s time to renew your state chapter membership for 2014. Please find your chapter here and request a form – or fill out the form in the hard copy of Turkey Tracks which you will have received in the mail. Again, many thanks for your continued support of the wild turkeys of Michigan!

If you’re a fan of Facebook (and who isn’t?), like our state chapter FB page as well as the Traverse Bay Chapter FB page for news and information on wild turkeys in those areas. If you’re lucky enough to harvest a bird this spring, please share your photos with us on Facebook!

Wishing everyone a good winter, and a successful, safe and fulfilling 2014 spring turkey season!
