Bear Hunting Clinic Well Attended


Bear Hunting Clinic

March 20, 2013
The Peachland Sportsmen’s Association (PSA) held a bear hunting clinic at the local community centre Wed evening from 6 to 8 pm. The event was facilitated by PSA members Brenton Froehlich and Brent Tingstad and sponsored by Kelowna Taxidermy and Grouse River Outfitters. 47 local residents with an interest in bear hunting turned out for the event, with most of the attendees being novice or “want to be” bear hunters.
The PSA hosted the clinic to encourage hunters to take advantage of the great bear hunting opportunities we have B.C., to equip novice bear hunters with the tools they need to be successful and to provide additional resources to those who have some experience but want to expand their knowledge base for success.
The clinic covered 13 different topics including; hunt planning, strategy & tactics, judging bears from a distance and what to do after the shot.
Thank you to all who came out for the evening to the ladies who provided the refreshments, to Amber from Grouse River and to Harley from Kelowna Taxidermy for their support.
There will not be clinic in April due to the PSA Annual General Meeting and pot-luck dinner but stay tuned for another timely event in the month of May.
