Battle of the Beards
Win cash prize and more!
NOW OPEN TO ALL OF TEXAS AND OKLAHOMA.

In 2020, we are encouraging all turkey hunters in Texas and Oklahoma to participate in Battle of the Beards. So, TX and OK, let’s bag some turkey from April 15-18, 2020, and come on out to Turkey Fest with your families to submit those winning gobblers.

The Battle of the Beards is an amateur turkey hunting competition that was previously only open to participants hunting in Clay or the surrounding counties. For the last ten years, we’ve marketed Turkey Fest as the #1 weekend to hunt turkey in Texoma! The demand for hunting properties has grown but many Clay County landowners already have their land leased or they donate their property for the World Championship.
