Antlers measured included: one moose, five elk, four bear, one mule deer and 10 white-tailed deer.

"We had good turnout with some potential record-breaking antlers," said Rob Wilcott, president of the Sturgis branch. The club had a quiet year, he said, adding that the group’s annual awards event is scheduled for February 8.

The club received another five-year extension from the federal government to operate the gun range. “This gun range is a shared site with the Preeceville Wildlife branch,” said Wilcott.

The executive for the new year are: Wilcott as president; Russell Walker, membership chairperson; Daniel Wasylenchuk, secretary and treasurer; Kelly Masley, awards chairperson, and Russell Walker and Ashten Langille, fundraiser chairpersons. Directors are: Allen Carlson, Tom Babchishin, Mervin Blender, Terry Hancock, Bert Suknasky, Chris Walker, Myles Zawislak and Clint Zubko.
