Georgia Chapter of the National Wide Turkey Federation gives Manager of the Year award

Posted: Updated:
Social Circle, Ga. - John Adams was awarded the Wildlife Manager of the Year award for exhibiting exceptional enthusiasm for the management of wild turkey.
The award is given by the Georgia Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation to recognize a Georgia Department of Natural Resources' Wildlife Resources Division employee for their efforts at managing for wild turkey, raising public awareness of conservation and wildlife management issues, improving wildlife habitat and increasing hunting opportunities. 

"John Adams consistently goes above and beyond his job duties making him an easy selection to nominate for this award," said John Denton, region supervisor for the southwest Georgia game management region. "His work ethic and his passion for wildlife habitat management are second to none," said Denton. 

Adams, a natural resources technician, is assigned to managing such areas as River Creek Wildlife Management Area in southwest Georgia. The Federation says the quota turkey, dove, deer, and waterfowl hunts at River Creek WMA are some of the most sought after by hunters, due in large part to Adams' management efforts on this property.
