This contest honours our friend Ron Mutrie who passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2021.
Ron was an avid turkey hunter and turkey conservationist. In fact, he had a hand in re-introducing wild turkeys back into Ontario in the early 1980's.
Ron was also an advocate of introducing new people into the sport, especially women and children.
Once we sell all 100 spots, we will use some of the proceeds to bring a NEW hunter out this Spring and help them bag their very first Tom. This is something that Ron would have done himself if her were still alive, and he would be happy to know that we are continuing his mentorship and introducing new people to hunting.
The winner of the actual best bird contest at the end of the season will get a $250 cash prize.
Prizes for 2nd and 3rd place prizes will also be awarded.
This is the 10th year in a row that we are hosting this contest and we're thankful and humbled by all of the continued support.
