 A Message from the President of WVTC

Another season has come and gone. I hope everyone was able to get out and enjoy the woods, waters and fields in pursuit of fish, fur and feathers. We are blessed to have a great diversity of habitats and game in Alberta.

This year will bring yet another youth award, the Savanna Koebisch Youth Huntress Award. Savanna has been a big supporter and winner at the annual Trophy Day since she was able to fish and hunt. She has learned that a successful day afield is not measured in terms of game bagged but in the time spent with family and friends. As such she is sponsoring the award and has decided to present it based on a raffle of all female youth members who have submitted a big game entry.    

The future of hunting and fishing is directly dependant on youth participation. We owe it to our sport to take a kid hunting and/or fishing. I am sure most of us can remember our first outdoor excursions. Sleep is often impossible with all of the great visions of large and abundant fish and game dancing in our heads. This still holds true for me. That excitement and anticipation is as strong as ever. No matter how early an alarm clock is never necessary. For some, outdoor hobbies such as hunting and fishing evolve into something much greater than a past time. It becomes a fundamental part of who we are.

For several years Willow Valley Trophy Club has recognized the importance of youth involvement in our sport and has introduced youth awards to encourage our outdoor pursuits. Over the past few years our records indicate youth memberships have increased by about 30%. We certainly hope this is an indication youngsters are spending more time in the out of doors.

Please come and join us in celebration of the 65th annual Willow Valley Trophy Day. Western Canada’s oldest, biggest and best trophy day.
