We had an amazing turnout at our Chain Lakes Kids Can Catch event on Feb 18,2023 with close to 200 people attending to try out ice fishing. Our volunteers were on hand to give out loaner rods, teach people how to fish, and hand out hot chocolate and hotdogs. A special thanks goes out to our volunteers that helped make this event happen and our sponsors the Alberta Conservation Association (ACA), Fresh-Live-Bait, and The Fishin' Hole.

Thanks to everyone that came out on Feb 16, 2022 for our annual horn scoring event at HubTown. We had a great turnout with lots of new and old members in attendance and at least a dozen sets to antlers and horns to be scored.
The largest set of antlers for the night was an archery elk that netted over 330 inches and will be a strong contender for the 2021 provincial awards.
We had a number of door prizes that went out in a random draw. Don't worry if you weren't there till the end, we'll make sure your prize makes it to you.
A special thanks goes out to the organizers and volunteers for the evening. We had 4 people scoring full time and lots of runners to help tally points and keep people and antlers moving smoothly.
We'll see you again next year!
After a successful season last year, Darren and his wife graciously cleaned out and fixed up the birdboxes from 2019 to get them ready for the 2020 nesting season.
These birdboxes were built by ODFGA volunteers and Darren was great about setting some up west of Okotoks.
