TERRE HAUTE —
I would like to express how dedicated the folks of the Emmanuel United Methodist are to their religion and all the folks in the community.
Michael Bolin is an inspiration to all, for his love of the outdoors and great fellowship, being a positive up-beat person.
They added a new building and the proceeds from the second annual Wild Game Banquet will help pay off the note. Next Saturday, you can enjoy great food while listening about the adventures Mr. Monty Browing has experienced during his hunting career. Monty is an extremely accomplished bow hunter that shared the World Record Grizzly Bear and has successfully hunted Moose, Caribou, African Cape Buffalo and many other species of game. Would you believe he accomplished this with recurve and longbows?
The church is located on highway150 a couple of miles north of the St Mary’s turnoff on the west side of the road.
For the starting time and to purchase tickets, give Michael a call at 812-249-1481.
I would like to mention the past White Tails Banquet which was outstanding. It’s no wonder it sells out in a matter of days. They were very organized and the best attribute was folks were truly “let down,” “laughing” and enjoying the experience. Great job, guys!
For all you folks that like to play with a stick and string, myself included, the following is the shoot schedule for Blandford Sportsman Club Archery: March 30, April 13, May 25, June 29, July 27, Aug. 24 and Sept. 21.

If you lose any arrows behind the clubhouse, yell Jason’s name and he will retrieve them for you. He is my hero!
While attending the National Wild Turkey Convention in Nashville, Tenn., I came across a couple of new products that I couldn’t live without. I’m not being paid to promote them. These are my own thoughts!
Quik Camo came up with attaching a face mask to this inside liner of a hat that is very lightweight and bunches up in your hat without notice. You simply pick up on your hat and it falls into place in seconds, with setting your hat back down and you’re ready to shoot. Yes, they are attached, you can choose the front or the back of the hat. The one attached in the back is my favorite; the bill of the hat is not in the way as well as the animal is less likely to recognize you without the hat bill in front. They come in all the camo designs Mossy Oak offers. Most of them have adjustable sizes.

I’m cheap, but I thought the $35 spent on the new Hammock seat is worth every penny. For you ground hunters, you will be comfortable in the Hammock style seat that Velcro’s on a tree with one center leg that pivots you 180 degrees around the tree, which covers about any direction an animal may appear from, except directly behind you. It folds up about the size of an umbrella and is very light. It’s about 12 inches long to hang on your side or fit neatly in your pack. It takes about two minutes to set it up. Call C.J. Smith at 706-289-5948 or CISdeer2307@hotmail.com.
For the kids that would try your hand at turkey hunting, the DNR is offering 21 different DNR Properties to hunt on for a special youth season hunt. If you are younger than 18 years old the hunt is on April 19 and 20.
Interested hunters or an adult representing the youth must register in-person or by phone with the property they wish to hunt. Hunters should register between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. this Monday through Friday and March 24-28. Hunters can register for only one property.
