Congratulations to the five counties that approved Sunday Hunting on Private Land this past Tuesday. Thank you to Cory Boothe and a host of others who did a great deal of leg work to get this issue put on the local ballots.
This change will be a good thing for the sportsmen and sportswomen of this state by providing a few more days of opportunity to be afield in the coming hunting season.
We have two big events on the horizon and want to make everyone aware of these.
First, on June 7 we will be assisting the Beyond the Back Yard (BBY) foundation with an Outdoor Adventure Day at the Charleston Cabela's store. We will be providing archery instruction for anyone that wants to learn how to shoot bow and arrow. BBY is expecting over 3,000 kids at this event.
The next big event is the following weekend, June 14 when WVBA hosts our own Youth Spike Camp. This is a day long camp where youth ages 8-17 will get instruction on shooting, treestand safety, ground blind building and the art of camoflauge, blood trailing/shot placement and bowfishing. A free lunch will be provided and the kids will have a great time. Pre-registration is required and the registration page can be found on our Facebook page. It will be loaded on the website soon as well.
Although our 35th Anniversary Awards Banquet is 10 months away, we have been donated a new hunt for the auction and working to get more. In this case we have a Wyoming Antelope opportunity. We have decided to start posting the details of the items that will be available at next year's auction under the Banqet Info heading. Keep tabs on this information for things you may want to bid on. We will also be announcing next year's speaker soon which should really get the excitement pumping!
As always, we will continue to do everything we can to promote the sport of bowhunting in our state.
And that's the bottom line,
Bryan Elkins, President
