Predator hunt huge success

To the editor:

The 8th Annual Copper Country Predator Hunt was a big success. The hunt reduced the number of coyotes that pray on newborn spring fawns, giving our already low deer population a better chance of surviving. As well as helping the small game population rise. The event also raised over $1,300.00 for the Keweenaw Peninsula deer feeding programs. This year’s Copper Country Predator Hunt champion is Mark Markham.

A special thank you goes out to our major sponsors: Northwoods Sporting Goods, Ace Hardware, Harter’s Party Store, The Loading Zone II, UP Trappers Association District 1, Patriot Towing, Keweenaw Chevy, Copper Country Ford, Campioni Hardware. Their support was very beneficial and greatly appreciated. Thank you again to Post 90/ Lakes Lounge for hosting our event.
