Ch. 19 was at the CVCC on Wed. Nov. 13 making a Firearms Safety Report for the upcoming deer season. Video and interviews were done as well as taping of shooting on the rifle range. The report will be aired on the 6:00 PM news today, Wed. Nov. 13th.
There was some confusion regarding the use of the Gun and Archery Buck Tags during the Nov. 23 - Dec. 1 gun deer season and the Dec. 2 - Dec. 11 muzzleloader seasons at the membership meeting on Oct. 31st. The question was asked if it was allowed to enter 2 bucks in the CVCC Deer Contest since bows and crossbows can be used in addition to firearms. In reviewing the DNR Deer Regulations the answer is YES since the archery season is open during this time. However, only 1 buck can be tagged with the Gun Deer Tag but it can be killed with either a firearm, bow or crossbow.
The October drawing in the CVCC's Raffle for Serious Sportsmen was held at the monthly membership meeting on Thursday, October 31st.

A Sako 85 Finnlight ST .270 Win Rifle with a retail value of $1650.00 will be given away. Good luck to all who purchased tickets.
