The Wildlife Heritage Foundation of Wyoming and the Greater Hulett Community Center will welcome celebrities and other special guests for a weekend of turkey hunting in the Hulett area. A portion of the proceeds from this event will be used to help fund research, education and habitat projects that benefit Wyoming’s game and nongame species.
“As our signature sponsor, the Remington Outdoor Foundation has taken the lead in providing us with the resources and support we need to make this a first class event,” said Craig Showalter, president and CEO of the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of Wyoming. “This is another example of how serious the Remington Outdoor Foundation is about forming partnerships and supporting other nonprofits and industry leaders to ensure the growth of the outdoor, shooting and hunting experience for generations to come.”
Guests will enjoy two days of turkey hunting in northeast Wyoming where the Black Hills meet the Great Plains. Western hospitality will be provided by the Greater Hulett Community Center, a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organization with a mission to reconstruct and repurpose the former Hulett School into a community center. Hulett residents will help coordinate guides, lodging, meals and transportation. In addition, local landowners will offer hunting opportunities during the Old West Invitational Turkey Shoot on private land where only guided hunts are traditionally allowed.
Auctions, dinners and a host of other activities are scheduled throughout the event in support of conserving Wyoming’s more than 600 different species of wildlife.
