Letter to PVCI from an appreciative attendee of our George Knox Predator Hunting Boot Camp.
As a participant of the boot camp this past weekend I want to say Thank You for very good event. As a new comer to predator hunting there was large amount of good information presented in the seminars. I hope to use a lot of what was presented as I get more involved in this activity. And, what can I say about the kitchen help and their dedication to serving us some wonderful meals. I know Friday evening everyone was getting a little anxious and hungry, but once the food arrived, well, the Bratwurst was worth waiting for. Last but not least, my mentor on the hunt. Nigel, he couldn't have been replaced by anyone better. He was patient, informative, and really tried to provide us with a quality and successful hunt. We didn't get any called in, but we did hear a few out there somewhere. And that was ok for me on my first time out. Unfortunately, l had to leave immediately after the hunt Saturday night and did not get a chance to personally thank Nigel for his mentoring. Please relay that to him. Again, thank you for a wonderful event, Mike Janik.
NOTICE: PVCI Board of Directors Meetings moved from the 3rd Wednesday to the 3rd Thursday of each month.
Come join us at Cabela's this weekend August 27th and August 28th from 10:00am until 3:00pm. This is the perfect class if you are new to hunting or you want to start your kids (10 years or older) out hunting. Predator hunting in Arizona includes coyotes, foxes, mountain lions and bobcats, just to name a few. We'll take you through rules, regulations, predator calling, tracking and hunting to make the most of your hunt. Presented by Cabela's Conservation Partner: Phoenix Varmint Callers, Inc.
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!
