Last Month's Meeting Minutes

Youth Waterfowl Hunt 2016!

Five GLHRC Members organized hunting trips for youth on Youth Waterfowl Weekend, Sept. 10 & 11. Charlie Kitchel, Kule Wildschut, Ron Jenks, Jeff Kooiker, and Chad Miller offered guided duck hunts to kids who attended the Lake Effect Chapter of Michigan Duck Hunters Association's Youth Waterfowl Festival and entered the drawing for a fully outfitted hunt. While the MDHA put on the fully outfitted hunt, GLHRC offered three "runner up" prizes to kids who wouldn't have otherwise had the chance to go hunting that weekend. All three groups got multiple shooting opportunities, bagged a couple of birds, and had a great time. All three guides reported that the kids were both appreciative and attentive throughout the morning! What a pleasure to spend a little time in the blind with the future of our sport!

Kyle organized a hunt separate from the MDHA hunt, but took two young men from his neighborhood. They had been invited by Mike VanDommelen to hunt his private pond behind his house. As you can see from the upper right hand photo, they were the youth group most successful - at least in terms of birds harvested! We'd like to extend a special thanks to Mike for the invitation to hunt on his property!
