DON'T MISS the FREE Annual Marvin Robbins Memorial Juniors Spring Turkey Hunting Camp April 18th-20th, 2014 at Colcord Ridge Campground. Camp size is limited, so register early! This camp caters to over-the-counter tag holders for units 4A and 4B as well as draw tag holders for units 23 and 3C.
We really need mentors who are willing to help try to get kids on birds and teach them basic outdoor skills, hunting ethics and turkey hunting. Mentoring is as fun-if not more fun-as hunting yourself and it is definately a rewarding experience. Please consider being a mentor!
There will be a turkey calling/hunting seminar Friday and Saturday and a predator calling/hunting seminar on Saturday. Camp includes free lunch and dinner, snacks and drinks Friday and Saturday. Also there will be raffle prizes and gifts sponsored by Cabela's, Arizona Elk Society and Valley Longbeards Chapter of the NWTF. See link below: Link to details, schedule and registration information.
PVCI is going to have a 5-pack raffle fund raiser. There will be 5 prizes and 5 winners drawn.

You do not need to be present to win - HOWEVER, your presence would be most appreciated! The BBQ/Camp Out and ensueing shooting events are a lot of fun and the more people (especially kids) the merrier. (More on the BBQ later)
