Measure antlers, horns at Fish and Game

Saturday, Jan. 19 is the date that all hunters are invited to bring their skulls, mounts, horns or antlers to the Courtenay and District Fish and Game Protective Association to be measured and scored. There will be a $5 measuring fee for non-members. You are welcome to bring interesting antlers or mounts, even if not record material for a little show and tell. You will always find someone interested in the story.

Fish and Game members are also reminded that this is the last day to bring weigh-in slips for Fish and Game awards for 2018 — any volunteer slips and photos (4 x 6) for the Frank Gavin Memorial Photography Award. The Fish and Game Awards Dinner will be held March 30 at main hall.

There is no admittance fee for viewing by the public, so bring friends and family and check us out at the Courtenay and District Fish and Game facility. The kitchen will be available for lunch and refreshments. Gone Fishin is sponsoring this event by providing prizes for free draws. Doors are open from 9:30 am to 2 p.m. Measuring will run from approximately 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
