Alabama One-Shot Turkey Hunt

Recently, SCI CEO Laird Hamberlin and Eastern States & Local Liaison Bee Frederick participated in the Alabama Governor’s One-Shot Turkey Hunt hosted by Governor Kay Ivey and the Alabama Conservation and Natural Resources Foundation. 

The three-day event featured a welcome reception, a day and a half of turkey hunting, a regional dinner, and was capped off with an awards luncheon recognizing the highest scoring gobblers. First occurring in 2002, the Alabama Governor’s One-Shot Turkey Hunt was last held in 2015 and is both a celebration of Alabama’s beautiful natural resources and an economic development tool for the state. The event brings together corporate CEOs and presidents, various endemic and non-endemic sponsors, outdoor celebrities, media representatives, conservation partners and local landowners/guides for the event that supports the Foundation as well as to helps to recruit and retain businesses within the state. 

The Alabama Conservation and Natural Resources Foundation uses the funds for scholarships at Auburn University and the University of Alabama as well as in support of numerous Department programs like Becoming an Outdoors Woman, the Adult Mentored Hunting Program, youth dove hunts, Hunters Helping the Hungry, the Go Fish program, and more.

Joining SCI staff during the hunt was former Secretary of Agriculture and avid turkey hunter Sonny Perdue. Additionally, numerous elected officials, executive branch personnel, and various representatives from in-state and national conservation organizations participated in the heralded event. 

SCI is proud to have donated the 2021 SCI gun of the year – a beautiful 20-gauge Fausti Caledon – and numerous hunts in support of the event and the Foundation. SCI also thanks Governor Kay Ivey, the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, the elected officials and others present at the One-Shot who strongly support hunting in the Yellowhammer State.
