The Pennsylvania Chapter of BHA will host its second annual Gobblers & Garbage event this turkey season! The goal of this competition is to see who can pick up the most trash from our Pennsylvania landscape while trying to kill a turkey.
The competition will begin 5/1 and end on 5/31. This competition is for members only so if you're not a member, sign up here right now!
How It Works:
To earn points, fill a standard plastic grocery with trash collected from anywhere in PA and send us a photo by email at [email protected] or tag @bha_pa on Instagram and use the hashtag #GobblersAndGarbage. If you kill a turkey, measure the beard to the nearest 1/2 inch and send us a photo or tag us on Instagram (make sure to tell us how many bags of garbage you picked up that day too!). Multiply beard length by 1 (beard length x bags of trash). You MUST pick up trash to earn points on a kill. Points ONLY awarded for picking up trash.
Example 1: Nate is hunting State Game Lands in the Poconos. He gets 2 bags of trash, but doesn’t kill a turkey. =2 Points
Example 2: Nick is hunting on State Forest land. He collects 2 bags of trash. He also kills a tom with a 9.5” beard. 9.5 x 2=19 Points. Trash must be picked up on the day of the hunt for the beard length multiplier to be used.
