Turkey Scoring - NWTF Official Registration Process

3 posts in this topic

Whether successful in 2007 or not - If you are not a National Wild Turkey Federation member - I suggest you join.

NWTF has been very active in MN helping the DNR expanding the range of turkeys north and west. cool.gif

Turkey scores are fun, but I would say it does not fall into the same level as B&C scoring of antlers.

The NWTF does register turkey scores, but it is also an income generator. I believe many hunters use it to document their SLAMS (eastern, merriam, rio, osceolla).

Here is the process from NWTF:

No time limitation is placed on registering a bird as long as the hunter can provide proper documentation and signatures to meet registration requirements.

Both the hunter and the primary witness must be, or must become, a current NWTF member in order to register the bird.

The cost to register each bird is $10. The cost of membership is as follows: $30 per year for Regular members, $25 per year for Wheelin' Sportsman members, or $25 per year for Women In the Outdoors members. One check may be written for turkey registration and membership fee.

Step 1: Download the NWTF Wild Turkey Records Official Registration Form.

Step 2: Completely fill out the form, provide proper attachments (if needed) and obtain proper signatures (see form for details).

Step 3: Mail registration form and attachments (if needed) to:

The National Wild Turkey Federation

Attn: Wild Turkey Records

P.O. Box 530

Edgefield, SC 29824

Note there is no time limit. If you write down the information, take some good pictures - you can register the turkey when ever you want.

I have registered turkeys and it is a very easy process. You will see where your bird ranks if its a biggy.

      I am looking at a new portable shelter this year. It would be ideal to get one that fits 3-4 people so I can take my whole family out. I am looking at the clam x400. My concern is the weight. Does anybody have experience lifting this unit up in the back of a truck or dragging it around or to move from spot to spot?  Any suggestions of other shelters to look at would be great. Thanks!

      Just wondering what you guys prefer for fishing fall walleyes down here in southern mn. I know the creek and redtail chubs work great on the northern mn lakes during the fall months but wasnt quite sure if our lakes responded the same down here or if a smaller profile would be the way to go.
