Each spring, the Old West Invitational Turkey Shoot (OWITS) is held in Hulett, WY, with Devils Tower National Monument as the backdrop. The event is a cooperative effort with a two-pronged goal; raise funds for two great non-profits and promote wildlife conservation in Wyoming. Proceeds from the event are split evenly between Wyoming Wildlife Foundation (WWF) and the Greater Hulett Community Center (GHCC). WWF is a component fund of the Wyoming Community Foundation and uses their portion of the proceeds to implement wildlife habitat projects across the state. In addition, GHCC uses their half of the funds to maintain the community center and provide community services and support for the town that 383 people call home.
The OWITS is an exclusive event, based on a one-shot turkey hunting competition. Nearly 100 hunters, including youth hunters participate each year and enjoy a guided turkey hunt. You may even run into a celebrity or two. We have welcomed NFL and MLB players, Olympians, and multiple outdoor television personalities in past years.
During the day hunters can partake in a little friendly competition down at the fairgrounds with the Annie Oakley shooting competition or relax with a round of golf at the beautiful Golf Club at Devils Tower. Also, participants can take part in exciting evening events, including a calcutta, raffles, and live and silent auctions.
