Greetings everyone! Just a few items for you this month:

1. RAFFLE TICKET ALERT – please get the stubs and money to Phil as soon as possible. The drawing is July 31st!

2. RENDEZVOUS ALERT – The rendezvous will be Saturday, August 11th at the Turtle Lake Wildlife Club. The grounds are located about 1 mile east of Turtle Lake (on the road to Lightning Lake). You can show up Friday evening if you like – there are spots for primitive camping and about 8 electric hookups if you’re using a trailer (first come, first serve). There is another campground located with the city park as well. Demonstrations and activities will begin about 8:30 AM and go until around 4 PM. There will be trapping and cable device demonstrations in the morning; lunch and auction around noon; and marksmanship training and a shooting competition in the afternoon. Lunch may be pork sandwiches (from the roasted pig) with everything else that is needed – the auction will be awesome entertainment (please solicit donations and bring them along) – there will be a small arms range for those who’d like to shoot .22’s (we’ll provide the ammo for the young folks) – and a shooting competition for centerfires, so bring your coyote rifle. Trees are far and few between, so if you need shade you’ll have to bring your own. There is plenty of water for fishing or swimming nearby – Lightning, Brekken, and Holmes are the lakes and the McClusky Canal is adjacent to the club house. There are more details on the website at or in the newsletter. Hope to see you there!

3. And last but not least, Stephanie Tucker (our furbearer biologist) reports that there is a good possibility that the fisher quota may be raised to 15 for this season.

Remember to keep your membership current so you stay informed. Until next time, take care and be safe. Catch ‘ya. — Rick Tischaefer
