A whopping $7,200 was raised this year for SCI-PAC from the sale of a very special “one of a kind” turkey print at the chapter’s banquet March 3 in Hagerstown.

This print, the collaborative effort of three local Fulton/ Franklin county artists, was donated to the SCI chapter banquet with the instruction that all proceeds from its sale be donated to SCI-PAC.

The print, “Struttin’ Time,” was made from an original painting by Mark Twain Noe and has been used for more promotions by the National Wild Turkey Federation than any other print in its history. The print was matted for display with a handcrafted wing bone turkey call by Butch Seiders on which Melissa Ball painted a gobbler head and turkey feather.

SCI is the only prohunting organization with an office in Washington, D.C., that has full-time policy experts, in-house legal counsel and certified wildlife biologists on staff – all dedicated to the protection of our hunting heritage and scientific wildlife conservation worldwide.
