The New Jersey State Chapter usually initiates the banquet season with an Awards Banquet to honor the volunteers who put in so much time and effort in working for the wild turkey. However, we have not had an Awards Banquet since 2015.


Our local chapters have hosted several outstanding banquets and events this year and it is time once again to pay homage to our great voluteers. This special banquet is designed to give volunteers the recognition that they deserve, give our members the opportunity to get together with members of other chapters and to and to have lots of fun!
