Local outdoorsmen and women will have the opportunity to conserve wildlife and minister children as part of a new chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation.
Spearheaded by chapter president Shannon Dunaway, the Bainbridge-Decatur County Longbeards are currently orchestrating numerous events that centers around ministering children. The focus goes beyond just turkey hunting.
“We will have fishing, archery shoots, skeet shoots, and will support the local 4-H clubs with their archery events. As far as the chapter itself, we can do anything we want to do,” Dunaway said.
Dunaway’s main mission with this chapter is ministering kids and guiding them through their relationship with God. He said this chapter will be faith driven.
“We love God, we are committed to conservation and we love hunting,” Dunaway said. “It is something to give these kids to look forward to every year. Everybody will know the Bainbridge-Decatur County chapter will be doing something year-round, every year.”
The local chapter also has plans to host events for special needs kids, including children with autism and other handicaps, wounded warriors and women.
To make the events happen, the chapter’s board is asking for volunteers, sponsors and members.
