NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The National Wild Turkey Federation recently honored Oklahomans in four categories at the 44th annual NWTF Convention and Sport Show in Nashville, Tennessee. The awards given included The Wildlife Office of the Year Award, The Land Stewardship Award, The Best Inaugural Event - Hunting Heritage Program Award and Fund Raising Award.
2020 Wildlife Officer of the Year
Kenny Lawson of the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation received the prestige’s 2020 Wildlife Officer of the Year Award. The Wildlife Officer of the Year Award is given to individuals that have excelled and demonstrated exceptional performance in the following areas: teamwork and innovation, excellence and innovation, attitude and leadership and achievements and accomplishments
“As a game warden, it is easy to feel like you are doing a thankless job,” Lawson said. “To be recognized by the NWTF, who I believe is the greatest conservation organization in the country, is a huge highlight in my career.”
Lawson has served as a game warden for 30 years and has tirelessly protected Oklahoma’s vast natural resources.
Through a seven-week span of studying 50,000 photos from covert cameras, Lawson single-handedly implicated 25 suspects of poaching bucks, does and a bear. The criminals faced thousands of dollars in fines and had hunting privileges revoked for life. Lawson has been at the forefront of apprehending poachers in Oklahoma, seizing anything from illegally harvested mountain lion to retrieving over a mile of illegal gill nets from the waters he patrols.
This award is not new to Oklahoma. We are honored to have Oklahoma wardens win this award in two previous years when Wardens Shane Fields and Spencer Grace received the well-deserved award.
“It is an honor to present officer Lawson with the Wildlife Officer of the Year Award,” NWTF CEO Becky Humphries said. “His love of the outdoors, coupled with his dedication to Oklahoma’s great natural resources, sets a high bar for conservation officers across our country.”
Land Stewardship Award
J.D. Strong and Eric Suttles from the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation accepted the Land Stewardship Award. “I’m honored to receive this esteemed award on behalf of the department and our hard-working biologists and technicians who pour out their sweat and toil every day for nothing more than the reward of a prosperous flock and a better hunt for our sportsmen and women,” said J.D. Strong, director of the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation. “This award embodies the strong and productive partnership we have forged over the years with NWTF, which has enabled us to do so much more to improve habitat and grow hunting than we could ever do on our own. Thank you to the thousands of NWTF donors, volunteers and staff that give so selflessly to help us do what we do in Oklahoma.”
The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation embodies the NWTF mission. Through a statewide network of 30 wildlife biologists and 30 technicians, the ODWC provides technical assistance to private landowners. Five designated private lands biologists provide technical assistance to private landowners on a full-time basis as part of the ODWC’s Oklahoma Lands Access Program. The programs seeks to allow access to quality lands for public use.
The Oklahoma Department of Conservation has entered into secured agreements with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Oklahoma Prescribed Burn Association to facilitate conservation and habitat improvement across the state.
“The NWTF would like to take this time to recognize the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation for their outstanding work,” NWTF CEO Becky Humphries said. “Opening private lands for public access, improving wildlife habitat and creating strong partnerships —these are intrinsic components to the NWTF mission, and it is great seeing a state agency pushing a similar mission.”
The Best Inaugural Hunting Heritage Program Award
The Best Inaugural Hunting Heritage Program Award was presented to the Tri-City Sportsmen Chapter. Bobby Armstrong and Rick Nolan accepted the award on behalf of the Newcastle, Blanchard and Tuttle, OK Chapter. The Tri-City Sportsmen hosted a deer hunting workshop designed to assist new or novice hunters who do not have the benefit of a friend, family member or colleague to mentor them. This workshop provided attendees with the tools and knowledge needed to get started hunting and improve their experience when they go out on their own.
“NWTF outreach events are so important to our mission,” NWTF CEO Becky Humphries said. “By creating new ones, our local chapters are continually tailoring their events to fit the needs of new hunters in their areas.”
Fund Raising Award
The Tulsa NWTF Chapter leaders Garrett McClendon and Jeff Springman accepted an award that recognized the Chapter for annual fund raising that exceeded $75,000 during 2019.
About the National Wild Turkey Federation
When the National Wild Turkey Federation was founded in 1973, there were about 1.3 million wild turkeys in North America. After decades of work, that number hit a historic high of almost 7 million turkeys. To succeed, the NWTF stood behind science-based conservation and hunters' rights. Today, the NWTF is focused on the future of hunting and conservation through its Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative – a charge that mobilizes science, fundraising and devoted volunteers to conserve or enhance more than 4 million acres of essential wildlife habitat, recruit at least 1.5 million hunters and open access to 500,000 acres for hunting.
