USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Dear fellow National Wild Turkey Federation members and supporters,
It is that time of year again, time to elect three members to the National Wild Turkey Federation National Board of Directors. I am Sherry Crumley, and my husband Jim and I live in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia where we farm for wildlife. It has been my honor and pleasure to serve on the board for the past six years and I am asking for your vote so I can continue to represent you.
Our National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) is on a solid path with our Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative. We are putting our dollars to work on the ground improving the land and working to open more land for hunting opportunities. As we all know, one of the biggest threats to our hunting heritage is lack of a place to hunt. Through our Super Fund, we empower our NWTF chapters and volunteers to decide how they want to spend their dollars locally. Those Super Fund dollars might be spent buying land in partnership with our state game agencies or other partners, improving habitat or funding outreach events, thus helping to Save the Habitat. and to Save the Hunt.
Personally, I have been involved with the NWTF since attending my first convention in Des Moines, Iowa in 1985. I served as president of the Roanoke Valley chapter and was elected to the national board in 1994 and served until 2000. In 2012, I was asked to run again for the board and was elected. I have been on the Finance, Compensation, Awards, Strategic Planning and Development committees, serving as Chairman of Development for the past four years. I was appointed by the governor to the board of the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries in 2002 and served until 2010, including a term as Chairman.
Turkey hunting is my favorite thing to do, though I enjoy all hunting. Jim and I find great pleasure in sharing the outdoors with our two granddaughters. Our 16-year-old granddaughter is an accomplished hunter, and our 7-year-old granddaughter loves shooting her BB gun and can’t wait to shoot a squirrel.
I also spend time mentoring young people who want to learn how to hunt. Currently, I am mentoring Eliza and Katie, two young ladies from non-hunting families who wanted to experience hunting. I encourage you to find someone to mentor. It is rewarding, and it helps us to Save the Hunt!
I would appreciate your vote. You must vote for three candidates and your ballot must be mailed by January 4, 2019. Please vote TODAY, and encourage your National Wild Turkey Federation friends to vote as well.
Friend me on Facebook and lets share turkey stories. Thanks for all that you do for the National Wild Turkey Federation!
