In 2016 the Clark County Forestry and Parks Department and The Black River Country NWTF Chapter teamed up to create five wildlife openings totaling 8 acres in the Clark County Forest. “Wildlife openings in a heavily forested landscape are critical for turkey brood-rearing habitat,” according to Rick Horton, NWTF District Biologist. “Young turkeys eat mostly insects in summer as their rapid growth requires a lot of protein. Openings with a lot of different kinds of flowering plants offer many different insects for the young birds”. The project used $1,200 of NWTF Super Fund and was matched with $6,333 from the County, so every NWTF dollar was matched with over $5 in outside funding!
Bluff Country Long Spurs hosted their Annual Landowner Appreciation Day event on June 25th at Lochner Park in Prairie du Chien. Area turkey hunters invite landowners that open their land up to allow a place to turkey hunt to this event for great food and fun as a way to say thank you. Bluff Country Long Spurs have been hosting this Landowner Appreciation Day event for over 27 years, great job to the entire committee!
