Details of upcoming 3 hunts for October.


Things seem to be coming together for our three upcoming hunts – thanks to all of your hard work. Right now we have about 27 hunters lined up for DAV hunt, but will likely end up around 25 or so. We narrowed down our list of dog handlers for the event – please remember to let all dog handlers know that we want them at Three Arrows between 8:00 and 8:15 on 10/2. We agreed to keep the pods of hunters separate and then individually bring them thru registration and out to their fields. They will meet their dog handlers at their designated hunting fields as a way to further encourage distancing. Jay will run birds back and forth between the hunters and the cleaning station so that we don’t end up with a group of hunters waiting for their cleaned birds. Boxed lunches from Jim’s will be picked up around 9:30 in Austin, Hagen will bring down rolls and coffee around 7:30 or so. We will have one person handing out donuts, who will be masked and wearing gloves. We will have masks and hand sanitizer for all three of the events. Right now we are sitting right around 32 hunters for the Hunt For a Cure event. Same basic protocols as the DAV hunt, but distancing should be easier given that hunters will be starting at different times throughout the day. No food, auction, or merchandise this year for the HFAC event. Please get out and encourage folks to register for the event! Paul is doing a great job putting together the youth hunt. We will have two groups of approximately 15 kids each, one starting right away in the morning and then one in the afternoon. Each group will be given a boxed lunch after they complete hunting. One kiddo from each group will win a gun, which Paul has already purchased. We agreed to have our next group Zoom meeting next Wednesday, September 30th, at 6:30 PM. I will get a link out to the group for this call.
