On Sunday August 20th, the Calgary chapter of Delta Waterfowl organized a Waterfowl Hunting 101 event as part of their First Hunt program. Twenty participants from a broad variety of backgrounds attended the event at Silver Willow where they learned about waterfowl hunting, conservation, and firearm safety. Participants ranging from 12 to 38 years of age, many of whom had not shot sporting clays before, were give the opportunity to try a variety of shotguns at the Duck Pond and speak with local waterfowl hunters about upcoming mentored hunts planned for this season. The inaugural event was a tremendous success and the chapter volunteers look forward to delivering a similar program again in 2018!
Father’s Day Trap Shoot – Thank You
Thanks to everyone who attended the Father’s Day Trap Shoot at the AHEIA Calgary Firearms Center. It was a great day, people had fun, and most importantly everyone handled their firearms safely. Feedback from participants indicated that there is a desire to have more traps shoots in the future and make this an annual event. The Calgary Firearms Center is open year round so get out and start practicing for next year. Thanks to our sponsors Ryan’s Meats, Cabela’s, and Bass Pro Shops for providing some great prizes and food for the day.

Hello Club Members,
Bob Dylan once said “the times they are a changing”. As Sarcee evolves, some changes must occur, thus this newsletter being the last. We will assure you that all of the
articles will be on our brand new vibrant website. If there are any of you that don’t have a computer or internet, you are welcome to phone me and I will be pleased to bring
you up to speed with all club news.
The next meeting will host the area biologist who will give a year in review on hunting in the Calgary and greater area.
Don’t forget the annual banquet and awards dinner, tickets are selling fast.

Thanks to everyone that was able to come down to volunteer at the B&SS this past February! All of your efforts are truly appreciated. There were a lot of Sarcee Members that came out but I really would like to thank Rob for doing all the heavy lifting by shuttling all the backboards, bird houses and supplies back and forth to storage. Also, Marty and his family put in many, many hours and kept everything running smoothly down at the show. Our volunteers were amazing and we had a few new members out volunteering and learning about our club.
Our booth was very solid this year. The interactive features of our booth are what really “brings it alive” and gets people interested in starting conversations with us! Once again […]
