The 2011 MDF banquet scheduled for March 10 at the Palm Event Center on Vineyard Avenue in Pleasanton will feature a mule deer hunt with Kiff Covert of Dome Creek Outfitters in British Columbia. Kiff has donated a combo mule deer and moose hunt in BC Game Management Unit 7-5 located in the Fraser River drainage on the western slopes of the Rocky Mountains.
An interesting twist to this hunt is that it takes place where you’re almost as likely to run into Canada moose as mule deer and some of them are trophy class. Moose can be taken on this hunt for a trophy fee of $1,000.
If you’re into whitetail, you can go that route, but you’ll need a whitetail and a mule deer tag to do that.
The hunt is for seven full days and includes pickup from and return to St. George (about sixty miles) on the day before and after the hunt. All meals, lodging and travel during the hunt are included as well as field care of game. If time permits, they will assist in delivery of meat to a local butcher or taxidermist.
I can personally vouch for the hospitality and trophy potential. I’ve already plunked down a deposit for a 2011 archery hunt.
Kiff Covert will be on hand the night of the banquet to answer questions about this or other hunts he offers. Tickets, which sell for $80, can be purchased by contacting Bob Holm (925)447-2044 or by emailing me at email@example.com.
