STURGIS - The Sturgis Wildlife branch of the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation hosted its annual horn measuring evening at the Sturgis Curling Rink on December 20 with 24 set of antlers brought in to be measured. The evening featured Blair Secundiak as official measurer who was assisted by Kate Lockhart, who is member of the River Ridge Wildlife Club.
There were three moose, four elk, one mule deer and 16 white-tailed deer antlers that local and area resident and club member hunters had brought in to be measured and displayed. There were also 22 memberships sold to new and existing members.
“COVID had shut down the club and we were forced to once again not have a hunter awards banquet,” said Rob Wilcott, president of the Wildlife Club. “Despite no awards for the second year, the club still remained busy. We put up a new registration building at the gun range in May. The building was made possible through Gateway Co-op, moved to the location by Jamie’s Bobcat with labour help of Rob Wilcott, Miles Zawislak and Randy Gulka. We entered into a lease agreement with Peniuk Farms for the new year. We would also like to encourage local and area hunters to purchase their memberships through any club member,” concluded Wilcott.
