MSC to hold juniors-only muzzleloader deer camp
KINGMAN - The Arizona Game and Fish Department has notified the Mohave Sportsman Club that they have been awarded a grant to hold a deer camp for the December juniors-only muzzleloader hunt in Unit 16A, the Hualapai Mountains.
The $1,000 grant will be used to put on a camp primarily for the 30 lucky tag-holders, which include 11 Mohave County residents, nine of which live in Kingman, one in Golden Valley and one in Mohave Valley. However, the camp will be open to not only the 30 kids who have muzzleloader deer tags but to anyone who wants their kids to learn more about hunting and the great outdoors. The 30 lucky deer hunters will each have a florescent orange embroidered hunting vest and hat waiting for them in camp. In addition to these items, donated gifts from local merchants will also be given to every kid who stops by the camp, which will open on Dec. 18 and close on Dec. 21.
Parents also have a chance win an overnight striper fishing trip on Lake Mead with their son or daughter in the summer of 2010 if they bring their child by and register during the camp.
The camp will be located on the Cane Springs Ranch, which is owned by Anita Waite and Sherwood Cohen.
