PERRY COUNTY - Tim and Jeff Brumfield, representing Perry County in next month's Spring Turkey Challenge, have been invited to participate in remaining hunts in Georgia, South Dakota and Illinois. The brothers are looking for experienced hunters interested in taking part in upcoming hunts for hogs, antelope and whitetail deer.

Sportsmen or women interested in joining Tim and Jeff's Team Perry County will have the opportunity to show off on national TV in the remaining circuit event of their choice, but will also be competing for nearly $100,000 in cash and prizes.

Prizes will be divided among team members at the end of the circuit.

Interested area hunters should have experience with hunting in these remaining categories, which are archery-only hunts, as well as have knowledge of video cameras.

Entry fees are approximately $1,840 per person per event, which includes lodging and food. Teams will also have to pay for travel expenses and the cost of obtaining needed licenses. Future hunts include hogs in Georgia, antelope in South Dakota and whitetail deer in southern Illinois.

Most Campbell teams acquire these fees via sponsors who are looking for national and local exposure through the teams they back during each competition, which is aired on The Outdoor Channel and Fox Midwest. For more information, e-mail Robert Skinner at robert@huntclubswervices.net.

The public is invited to visit the Schergens Center starting at noon April 22 and will be able to visit vendors and obtain autographs from Campbell's staff and hunters. A banquet that evening begins at 6 p.m. at the Schergens Center.

The public is invited to join to share hunting stories, watch past Challenge videos and congratulate the Brumfields on their raffle win.

Banquet tickets are available for $12 for adults and $6 for children under 12. Tickets can be obtained by sending a check payable to Campbell Outdoor Challenge to Thomas Glass, Attention Banquet, 948 11th St., Tell City, IN 47586.

This is the first time opening ceremonies for a Campbell's Outdoor Challenge are open to the public.

The hunt will span the first three days of Indiana's spring turkey season, April 23-25. Teams will choose hunting sites across the county.
