We also had a visit from Keith Mark of MacMillen River Adventures. They did some filming of the event. And spoke to everyone about the need of predator control and letting the nonhunters know the hunting tradition is still alive. This will be aired this fall on their show on the Outdoor Channel.
We greatly appreciate the 30 different businesses and individuals who donate the door prizes and added money. We also thank all those who furnished the meal for the hunters and guest Saturday night.
Everyone had a safe hunt and met lots of new people. We will post next years hunt once a date has been set.
