This year we are holding an Appleseed Shoot on a very special day. April 18th and April 19th will see the Appleseed Program come once again to Kalicoontie. Visit appleseedusa.org for info and registration.
Kalicoontie Rod & Gun Club will welcome Former Knight & Hale Pro Staff members Jim Bertram and Richard Odell to the club on Saturday April 11th to host a Turkey Hunting Seminar. These two will be sharing their wealth of knowledge and experience with those interested in learning some tried and true methods of getting that big Tom to come to you.
A roughly three hour program that answers the most asked questions from turkey hunters everywhere: when, where, and how to call, and kill turkeys. You will learn techniques and tactics regarding the ‘setup’, ‘calling the wild turkey,’ and perhaps one of the most crucial aspects of all, taking the shot.
Those interested can call Joe at 518-537-3997 to register ( Free )

We held our annual Game Dinner this past Saturday at the clubhouse. Even though it was a snowy night, over 60 members and family attended the event. Fun was had by all. We started the night with a never ending smorgasbord of dishes prepared by the members followed with the presentation of our annual sportsmen contest awards.
Jake Wolfmann took home the “Biggest Trout” award and is now a two time winner in the division. His Father Erik brought home the “Big Striper” award and also has two contest wins on the books. Steve Russell followed up his 2012 “Big Buck” award with another this year and goes on to the two time winner class also. First time winner Flint Elmendorf brought home the “Big Turkey” award this year putting his name on the list of those winning our annual contests. Thank you all who have entered and better luck next year. Trout season starts in about 5 weeks. April 1st.
Here are a few of the photos taken from the dinner. As usual most every one went home with a door prize, some take home food, and some good memories. The 50/50 winner went home with a prize of $ 124.00 dollars. Not bad !! See you next time !!
The Kalicoontie Rod & Gun Club will be having the monthly meeting tonight at 7:00pm. Hope to see you there.
