  • nywaw changed the title to NY Woods & Water 2023 Adult Turkey Hunting Contest Winners and Prizes!

Meet the captain of the Bunny Clark, Tim Tower. It's my favorite fishing boat. Tim does a bike ride to raise money for the Jimmy Fund and the money goes directly to the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. If anyone wants to donate any prize money, it would be a great cause. Just throwing it out there.

There has been an adjustment to the prizes and distribution.  I want to thank @Spysar for his integrity in reaching out to me regarding the rule requiring including a picture of you with your turkey.  He recognized he didn't meet that rule and brought it to my attention.  As a result, his 3rd place prize will fall to the 4th place finisher in the Individual contest, which is @cynthiafu!  The original post and prizes being awarded have been updated!  Thank you again @Spysar for not only being forthcoming but also in your understanding of the mistake, truly exemplary! :up:

Congrats to everyone  who entered and had Fun.

  Sorry Partner/WNY BowHunter- I did not pull my weight with my waterlogged 14lb Jake. I concentrated on Cynthia . Next year though. 

   This was the year of the Jakes-Lol! 

  Should be PLENTY of 2 year olds running around next Spring and plenty of Jakes from,I believe to be a great Hatch and surviving Poults this Spring due to the dry conditions. 

  I hope so as,I seem to be a 1 Turkey a year Man when for 20+ years straight- it was 4 to 6 Birds in Spring and Fall and 3 States.  Man,I miss those years.

Take The Multiple Use Area Challenge.
