Annual Christmas Party December 6
From Ruth Strang, Christmas banquet coordinator:
"As our Christmas banquet approaches, we are still low on donation items. If everyone could donate new or gently used items, or contact businesses or other people you know and secure a donation, that would be great! We could also take cash donations to be used to purchase items for the Christmas banquet. You can contact me. Part of the proceeds will go towards our Disabled Veteran Predator Hunt."    Ruth Strang  602-524-3586

From the Arizona Elk Society's Facebook page:

"It is with deep sadness and heavy hearts that we share the passing of one of the greatest friends and partners to the Arizona Elk Society --Ray Evridge.

He gave his time and his heart to volunteer, mentor and help others. We lost a true hero today and one of the best conservationists and hunters in the state.

Ray, you made a difference in all of us and in Arizona. You left your footprint upon our hearts. You will be deeply missed our friend, but you will never be forgotten. We will continue to walk in your steps and you will always remain in our hearts. And, as we hear the call of the wild each season, we know you will be with us. We love you brother. RIP."

Ray's family has asked that in lieu of flowers you can donate to AES Hunts for Heros, Ray's latest project he was working on was for his Club, Phoenix Varmint Callers, Inc., and friends to partner with the H4H and take 4 of Arizona's wounded veterans on a free predator hunt this November. PVCI, AES and his friends are going to make Ray's legacy live on and host these warriors.

All funds will go directly to the PVCI wounded Veteran Predator Hunt. Thank you.

December 1965 Predator Tales DID YOU KNOW, that the predecessor to The Phoenix Varmint Callers, Inc. was called the Arizona Varmint Callers Association? I was contacted by a Ms Angie Turner-Moore, daughter of the late Pat Turner, who was one of the early members of the original Club. Pat held many positions within the Club, President and writer for the Predator Tales among them. Well, the reason Angie contacted me was to see if I (we, the Club) was interested in a pile of old issues of the Predator Tales, dating back to the fall of 1965 to sometime in 1971. Of course I said we'd like to have them, as they are windows in time to the early days of our Club and passion of predator hunting. So, I thought of re-publishing some of the issues here on our website for all to enjoy, and see what was happening 50 some years ago in the world of predator hunting. Enjoy the read!

NOTICE! LOTS of activities and hunting opportunities coming up! See the News and Events page.
