Hunters awarded trophies

The 2015 Kettle Wildlife association was a great success - with everyone leaving full and satisfied.

It is somewhat similar to the sharing in some hunting cultures that sees the bounty divided among members of the tribe after the hunt.

The annual Kettle Wildlife Association Banquet features a wild game dinner with meat provided by the club members. The buffet line offered cougar, elk, bear, venison and more.

Club director Guy Owens estimates the annual celebration of the hunt has been going for nearly 50 years, saying that the clubhouse itself opened in 1977 – 1978.

There was a cash bar, raffle and door prizes plus a silent auction and a 50/50 that was won by Steve and Lori Kirkham, who generously donated their winnings back to the club.

The BCSS grads did the clean up and afterdinner music was provided by Randy Kappes until late in the evening.

Winning trophies for the 2014 hunting season were:

Senior Grouse – Rose Boltz, 2 lbs 8 oz

White Tail Deer non-typical – Rose Boltz, 164 5/8

White Tail Deer – Kelly Harpur, 145 2/8

Elk – Guy Owens, 243 6/8

Bow Challenge White Tail – Guy Owens, 135 7/8

Junior Mule Deer – Alex Metcalf, 98 5/8

Black Bear – Ken Hesketh, 18 11/16

Mule Deer – Arlonn Elliot, 141 6/8
