Learn­ing new skills

The Western Star - - FRONT PAGE -

The Up­per Hum­ber Rod and Gun Club held their an­nual Youth Hunter Skills event on Satur­day in Deer Lake. This year the event had the max­i­mum num­ber of par­tic­i­pants, 50, from all over the west coast. The day’s ac­tiv­i­ties in­cluded shotgun, ri­fle, archery, and sur­vive out­side ses­sions, as well as plant and an­i­mal iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and ori­en­teer­ing. Safety was stressed and safety gear was pro­vided and had to be worn at all ac­tiv­i­ties, with qual­i­fied in­struc­tors over­see­ing each event. See page 5 for more pho­tos.
