Deer Contest

Thank you thank you thank you

to everyone that participated in Calvyns 1st annual deer season contest.

It’s our first go at this and it came together pretty quick and covid didn’t help much, (with camp sizes being down) but... we did manage a total of 21 weigh ins.... congratulations to everyone that was successful with their hunt 👍

Our prize winners for 2020 deer season are.....

Biggest buck...Casey Keller 204lbs

Biggest doe...Brad Bortuski 142.8

Mystery weight.. JP 144.8lb buck

Mystery weight... Larissa Luloff 119.7lb doe

1st muzzleloader ...Troy Leclaire 159.6 buck

1st bow hunter....Margaret O’Hara 109.3lb doe

Again... congratulations to everyone and thank you all so much for your support.

Now... time to start working on next years prizes and get getting ready for our first annual spring bear contest.

Also been hearing a lot about how much coyotes are a nuisance.... might be having a contest for them too. FYI.... all year, no tag needed in 63A

Community Raffle

THANK YOU

THANK YOU

THANK YOU

Our first annual community fund raising raffle comes to a close today and we’re very happy to announce....

First, a big big thank you to our local BMR that donated the 2 chainsaws and Murphys Septic Service ( 613-318-9070) for their generous, unsolicited donation. Thank you both for your contribution 👍👍

2nd.... our list of lucky winners....

Husqvarna chain saw... Charlene Holleran

Stihl chainsaw.... Shawn Snider

Keeper tracker winch.... Peter Licari

Murphy Septic Service...

Avery Lacourse

3rd.... to Gourleys outdoors in Renfrew, we learned some by watching and following.... imitation is the greatest form of flattery 🙏

We appreciate everyone that has donated and supported us.

With the exception of gaining new customers and getting the advertising benefits from running the contest we do not financially benefit from the contest. We merely manage the platform and our customers and sponsors make the rest happen. Without all the prizes the contest would not be such a success so please support those that support us. Follow the posts, like/share the prizes, note who they are from and most of all SHOP LOCAL. Make a point of going to these places or reaching out to them if they offer a service or product you need. Funds raised from the contest are donated to the Senior housing, Hilltop Church Griffith and St. Andrews church Matawachan. 2020 has been a crazy year.... we can't thank you all enough for all the love and support.
