Another month into 2021 and this year is flying by. Once again, not much to report. Get you applications in for the deer season and prepare for summer!

UPDATES:
We are one month away from having our first in person meeting back at the Rushmore Inn and Suites. I am excited to note that our speaker on July 7th will be Kevin Robling, the new Secretary of the Game Fish and Parks. Don't forget to mark this day on your calendars! 

I am looking forward to hearing from the department in person again on many issues. We also will be organizing a few more events including a fun shoot, free pizza gathering and the annual hunt film tour should be back on line at the Elks in October.

This will be the last month we will collect dues for renewing 2021 memberships!
