2023 Taber Pheasant Festival:
Thanks for another great year.
Another successful year for the Taber Pheasant Festival is in the books! Despite braving the snow and colder temperatures, the enthusiasm from all participants never waned. This wonderful event would not have been successful without the many volunteers (both human and dog!), ACA staff, our generous sponsors, and of course, the dedicated participants of the events during the festival.
Here are some fun facts from this year's festival:
- Roughly 75 hunters attended the Novice Shoot over the two days.
- Around 600 regular hunters came from over 75 different places in Alberta, including Calgary, Coaldale, Edmonton, Lethbridge, Okotoks, and Taber. There were also a few from BC, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and a hunter from North Dakota, USA.
- In a short survey, hunters advised on their favourite Alberta pheasant release sites to visit with Bigelow Reservoir, Buffalo Lake, and Frank Lake being the top three sites.
- Hunters were also asked if anyone from their party started hunting because they had participated at a previous Taber Pheasant Festival Novice Shoot, with 21 responding that the Novice Shoot encouraged them to continue their hunting journeys!
We are eagerly looking forward to the next festival, scheduled for October 19-26, 2024. Mark your calendars and be ready to register on June 3-14, 2024. We can't wait to see you there!
