Since its inception in 2006, Turkey Fest has included an Expo, Chili Cook-Off with Ray Wylie Hubbard, red dirt county concert featuring Cody Canada and The Departed, the Full Strut Banquet with live and silent auctions, and the World Championship Turkey Hunting Competition.
Turkey Fest is the only wild turkey festival dedicated to offering celebrity hunt teams a home away from home while they answer the call to become world champions. Teams are hosted and accommodated by local ranches. Teams consist of three members: a cameraman, caller and marksman. The Turkey Fest is always looking for new talent to include in the competition. Teams must have a syndicated outdoor show broadcast on channels like Versus, Pursuit, or the Sportmans Channel to be considered for the competition.
