The Southern Interior Mule Deer Project is in it's infancy stage. We have collared 22 Mule Deer does throughout the Boundary. Various tests and information was taken from each animal captured including ultrasounds. 
Every doe captured was pregnant, and all but three were pregnant with twins - which tells us great deal already. More volunteer work will be needed in the future for camera trap and vegetation plot monitoring. 

The next club meeting will be at the RDKB office May 11th 7:00 pm.

The spring turkey shoot will be held May 12th at the GFWA range starting at 10:00am
We will be presenting the 2017 awards at the turkey shoot as well.

Miller Creek Restoration Project -
Thanks to Jamie Hiberson, Gary Onions, Gordie Shaw, and myself who all put in another day brushing at Miller Creek our total hours are now at 102 in total which leaves 98 to fulfill our obligation at which time we will draw the name for the new chainsaw.
Anyone who wants to go up and work at the site throughout the year can do so on their own, just let me or Jamie Hiberson know if and when you plan to go up for a briefing.
We will be organizing a work party in the summer to go up and get more work done once the creek has dried up and we can get ATVs up the trail with people and equipment.

Father's Day Fishing Derby, Jewel Lake -
At this point, it looks like our annual fishing derby will be cancelled due to a lack of organizational support.
A special thanks to our Past President, Craig Kiselbach who created and organized the event which has been a big success for so many years.
