Lt Governor's Annual Turkey Hunt
The National Wild Turkey Federation provided guides to not only find wild turkeys, but to educate guests on the importance of wildlife conservation.
Annual Turkey Hunt is Huge Success
Pawnee County is a step closer to gaining the attention of businesses looking to relocate or start a new business in the Pawnee area when members of the Cleveland, Ralston and Pawnee Chambers of Commerce hosted Pawnee County’s first annual Lt. Governors Invitational Turkey Hunt. This event draws business and economic development leaders from across the county to see what Oklahoma has to offer.
Established by Democratic Lt. Governor Robert Kerr, the Invitational Turkey Hunt was part of a program to attract economic development prospects to Oklahoma. “It was a natural fit for the Lieutenant Governor’s office to host this event; hunting is a top tourism attraction. Coupling it with economic development opportunities is a smart match for the state,” said Mary Johnson, Executive Director of Cleveland’s Chamber of Commerce.
Tom Briggs, General Manager of the Pawnee Chamber of Commerce, said the guest list is made up of corporate officers, site selectors and economic development professionals from some of the county’s top companies. “This multi-day event gives the state and Pawnee County the opportunity to display Oklahoma’s tremendous assets while holding the undivided attention of these business representatives,” Briggs noted.
