TELL CITY - Some of the nation's top turkey hunters will head to Perry County next spring as the Campbell Outdoor Challenge returns April 20-24.

The event features amateur and professional teams consisting of a hunter and cameraman who match skills in videoing hunts. Points are awarded on the size of the animal bagged and the quality of the video.

"It's a lot about Perry County that they've chosen to return here for a second year," said Bev Minto, executive director of the Perry County Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Plans are preliminary but a banquet is planned at the Schergens Center April 20, with the public invited to meet teams and visit outdoor displays of hunting and outdoor gear.
