Taber Pheasant Festival 2013
The 2013 Taber Pheasant Festival was a great success. Thank you to all our volunteers, sponsors, participants and especially the landowners. We couldn’t have done it without you!
Here’s how the numbers break down:
73 novice hunters joined us for the mentored hunt
636 enthusiastic pheasant hunters registered for hunting spots
75% of you came from more than an hour away from Taber
8% of our hunters came from out of province (BC lower mainland, Vancouver Island, Manitoba, Virginia and Montana)
280 wonderful supporters attended the dinner
$5,680 was raised from the silent auction
$ 3723.95 in hunt time raffle sales
$1,383.50 was raised from the gun and gift card raffles
$1,730 was generously donated over four and a half days through ATB Cares. ATB matched 15% of every dollar, increasing the total amount to $2,047! All funds go towards the 2014 festival and enhancing upland game bird habitat.
Stay tuned for next year. If you haven’t registered for an account before, sign up here. We’ll be sure to send you all the latest pheasant updates when we start planning next year’s festival.
