Chukar Club sets fund-raiser date

Tahoe Daily Tribune

Does the year 1986 sound familiar? That was the year the Carson Valley Chukar Club was founded and an effort to improve chukar hunting and related habitat in Nevada was the foundation. The focus then and continues to be “making a difference.”

The 17th annual CVCC fund-raiser will take place March 8 at the Douglas County Fairgrounds. Doors open at 5 p.m. and the program begins at 7 p.m. The cost is $25 and includes a delicious tri-tip, three-course dinner. Children under the age of 18 are welcome. Their admission fee is $15 and they must be accompanied by an adult. Everyone is encouraged to purchase their tickets early as organizers cannot promise admission tickets will be available at the door.

Auction and raffle prizes again promise to be first class. Rifles and shotguns such as Beretta, Weatherby, Remington, Ruger and Browning headline the special event. A variety of hunting, fishing and camping equipment will spark the attention of every outdoor enthusiast. An excellent array of wildlife artwork will add to the decor of any home. This year the door prize is a Remington model 1187 semi-automatic shotgun.

The Carson Valley Chukar Club remains committed to support the efforts to rehabilitate fire-damaged habitat and improve existing wildlife range. The CVCC continues to work closely with the Nevada Division of Wildlife and its Sharptail Grouse program, declining Sagehen study and guzzler maintenance to name a few. Anyone who has hunted on the west side of Santa Rosa, the Izzenhood or the Double H Mountains may have observed improved habitat. The financial support of the Kochia seed restoration project is working and has replenished badly needed habitat cover previously destroyed by fire. The Carson Valley Chukar Club remains active in its own backyard, too. The club continues to support the popular Kids’ Fishing Derby at Lampe Park as well as the Hunters’ Safety Program.
