Controlled deer hunt starts next week

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

Next week the controlled deer hunt for shotgun and muzzle loaders gets started locally. In the northern regions, the annual two-week open season for high power rifles and shotguns gets going.

This will be the first year for many years that I have had to miss the trip north. I had a replacement knee put in about two months ago and walking on rough ground could be a little risky. I'll certainly miss the comaraderie with the group up north as I really enjoy their company.

I haven't heard of any of our club members getting a deer since archery season opened, although one of the guys had an opportunity but had trouble with his equipment.

The archery season for deer will be closed during the week the controlled hunt with shotguns is open.

There is at least one deer not far way. When I was coming across the 7th Concession East last Friday there was one standing on the road shoulder until I got within 150 yards of him with the car.

The Waterdown club is being well represented at the silver Horseshoe Trap League meets.

At the first meet in September at the HAHA Club in Ancaster, Waterdown tied with Galt for second place with a 381 score. HAHA was the winner with 385 and Waterford had 379.

The October 16 meet at the Galt Club was won by Galt with a score of 379. Waterdown finished second with 371, followed by HAHA with 369 and Waterford with 365.

The Galt meet was on a windy day and the scores were below average. Top scores for Waterdown at the October meet were: Chris Ficzere 48, Vic Tomlinson 48, Maurice Staley 47, Brad Treanor 46, Borden Zazinsky 46, Dwight Cowan 45 and Sam Carrafiello 44.

The next meet will be at the Waterdown Club on November 20. It should be our turn to win a meet.

October 29 was the first anniversary of the passing of Murray Willis. All of us old Waterdown club members still think highly of Murray and miss him. For many years Murray sponsored the Murray Willis Shoot on New Year's Day. The shoot will still be held on January 1, 2006. (The R&G Club flyer had the Family Fair Shoot at the Hamilton Gun Club being held on January 1 and the Murray Willis shoot on January 8. The flyer was incorrect, so members should change the dates on their calendars.)

I missed both the Silver Horseshoe League Meet as well as the club's House League Meet in October.

My good wife and I were enjoying a fall colour cruise of Canada and New England. It was a good trip, although a bit on the cool side. We ran into a northeastern storm on the way to Newport, Rhode Island but the ship handled it well. The next thing on the program was Hurricane Wilma. No one was too anxious to tangle with Wilma, so the captain decided to increase speed and avoid that. We missed the storm and landed in our last port, Norfolk, Virginia, about 12 hours ahead of schedule.

My shooting scores would never be missed,that's for sure.
