In a few short weeks, the Turkey Trax event will be held in Starke County. This will be the third annual event that began when Eric Corey, who is confined to a wheelchair, asked his parents to organize a wild turkey hunt for other young people with similar disabilities.
Since that first hunt, the Turkey Trax weekend has grown into a huge event and this year, 25 young people will go out with local guides hoping to bag a turkey. The event will be held April 29th through May 1st.
Funds are still needed to adopt a hunter. A sponsorship is $150 and that includes lodging and hunting licenses. A fish fry will be held at the Knox Moose Family Center on Friday, March 4th to raise money to help sponsor the hunters. Fish fry tickets are $8.00 and are available at the door.
