Tall Timbers’ Georgia-Florida Turkey Invitational Benefits the Game Bird Program

For the 13th year, teams of two hunters will take to the woods in the Red Hills, talking turkey to attract a winning gobbler. This year the Georgia-Florida Turkey Invitational is April 12 and 13.

Ricky Lackey, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation turkey biologist will serve as the offcial judge. There will be a Calcutta and raffle with prizes for first, second and third place.
