We’re only 12 days away from this year’s Turkey Tracks Hunt sponsored by the Eric Corey Foundation.
Carol Corey announced last last week that this should be the biggest hunt since the event was established, with over 35 hunters with disabilities expected to be out the weekend of April 27 and 28 trying to “bag a wild turkey.”
The event was the brainchild of the late Eric Corey, who passed away earlier this year of the ALS disease. In his lifetime Eric was afforded many fabulous opportunities to hunt all over the world, and he and his family wanted to pay back by organizing a hunt so others in similar conditions could enjoy the sport that Eric loved so much.
At the final meeting held last week, 40 guides who will join the hunters that weekend met to map out strategies for the hunt.
The weekend will begin with a Welcome Hog Roast on April 27 at 5 p.m., and there will be a recognition dinner at 5 p.m. on April 28. This is for the landowners who allow their property to be open to the hunters and the guides. The public is invited to both meals.
