THE 9th ANNUAL “GEORGE KNOX MEMORIAL” VARMINT CALLING BOOT CAMP – AUG. 7, 8, 9, 2015
PVCI is planning its own Varmint Calling Boot Camp in conjunction with Outdoors Unlimited, AZGFD, NWTF, AES, etc. on – August 7, 8, 9. The idea being to make the predator seminars an in-the-field experience, sort of like what Marvin Robbins did with his in-the-woods turkey hunting seminars. Friday is really just for camping set-up & late meal. This idea of having predator instruction in the outdoors was thought about by our own beloved, the late George K. This Boot Camp, as in the past, will feature in-the-field training about predators & predator calling & cover all sorts of topics plus answer your predator-related questions. Outdoors Unlimited will also be on hand in support & will provide the meals for this Event. So if you’ve any interest at all in learning how to successfully call-in predators, then this Camp is for you. This Boot Camp is also “FREE” & open to ALL (not just youth) hunters! WHO: PVCI (others) will conduct a “Varmint Calling Seminar” covering all aspects of calling in critters.
WHEN: August 7, 8, 9, 2015. PLEASE REGISTER! To register & get more info: www.youthoutdoorsunlimited.com *****WHERE: The Boot Camp campsite will be at Vincent Ranch (See Map on page before Classifieds)****** Cost: Free to all. Come on out and learn instructions from hunters who have harvested many critters. Learn from their instructions and experience. We plan to go hunting too!!! There may be an incentive for joining PVCI. Mentors there are definitely incentives to encourage you to help. PVCI members, we really need your help! PLEASE REGISTER NOW! Camping is free but there is only enough room for tents & vehicles on the Ranch. The Ranch is NOT big enough for the big camp trailers & such. You may find a spot to camp outside of the Vincent Ranch area which is public land. Bring a chair or two to use during class & for around the campfire during the evening. Bring your camo & calls & if you have a shotgun or rifle you should bring it also, as the plan is to go hunting sometime during the weekend. FOOD: Meals provided Friday evening, Saturday morning & evening and Sunday morning.
THIS CAMP NEEDS MENTORS!Please consider helping out new/youth hunters and volunteer to be a mentor. It's fun and very rewarding. Thanks!
