The board of directors wanted to tell each of you how much we appreciate your support of the FOUNDATION and look forward to the years to come. LCTI2023 was a huge success and although we haven't directed the proceeds from the event just yet, it will be bigger than last year by a long shot! We will update you on this when the time comes.
Congratulations to our winning teams with ALL three birds being harvested in Georgia; this is a first in 12 years.
Joe Monroe, Brooks Fussell

Congratulations to our youth winners as well.
LCTI2023 had representation from South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama, and Arkansas with teams hunting as far away as Conway and into Georgia. A total of 83 teams including the youth hunted over 100,000 acres with a total of 28 birds harvested......one bird per 3,571 acres harvested. To further break down the harvest, 24 birds were harvested during the main event across 75,000 acres (1 bird per 3,125 acres) and 4 birds harvested across 25,000 acres in the youth hunt (1 bird per 6,250 acres).
We will be creating a picture page on the website soon so if you have any great pics from the event or tasteful harvest pics in the woods you would like to share please send them over.
Also, we are expecting the Mr Fox gun raffle to launch by the first week in May so stay tuned!
In 2022, the 11th Annual Low Country Turkey Invitational raised $45,000 for the Low Country Game Bird Foundation.
Sixty, two-man teams participated in a one day tournament as well as twenty youth the following day. An assortment of custom turkey calls were awarded as prizes during what is locally known as one of the best weekends of the year!
