More Banquet Stuff


Arlen and Jamie attended MGPO meeting today. We as a chapter need to line up at least 50 hunter/host/dog partners lined up for the MGPO.

Working out logistics of as much land as we can get 3500-5000 acres to have available to hunt.

We will have the application by next week. One of the responsibilities is to vet the dogs to make sure that they are qualified to hunt well.

Goal is to get as many local people to use their dogs on the MGPO.

Need to have hunter/host lined up by May. More to come on this event....
