Jake's Day for Families

It was the annual Jake's Day Plus event and families took time away from the TV to spend time together outdoors.
Saturday was the annual Jake's Day Plus event at Evansville's West Side Sportsman's Club, sponsored by the local National Wild Turkey Federation chapter, Tristate Thundering Toms.
The event had everything from gun safety lessons and archery, to deer hunting and bass fishing lessons.

The president of the NWTF, Stacy Young, says they're about more than just turkeys -
"A lot of people think of National Wild Turkey Federation as, it just is about turkeys, and it's about everything, about getting everybody out here, and have fun in the outdoors, get them away from the video games."

This is the third year for the event.
Perry Township was also on hand with their 'Smoke House' to teach kids about fire safety.
