We will be in attendance with our waterfowl mount display trailer. This is a great organization that is working on trying to trap some brant to install GPS trackers so we can learn more about the Arctic brant.

t the event we will have a sponsor board that you can put your name on for $100. Money raised goes to our scholarship for students going into wildlife management.  At the end of the event a drawing will take place and  3 people will be chosen. First pic first choice and so on.  A Beretta A300 12 gauge synthetic, a 20"x16" Mariners sign and a smoker will be the thank you to the winners. Must be present to win. In addition a few vendors selling hunting collectables will be present. Vintage decoys, old shell(s) boxes, calls and the like.
At the park we will be located at the 2 big covered areas so rain or shine we have you covered!
