An annual club meal saw duck hunters gather at a restaurant in Davidson on Saturday, but they weren’t there to discuss fowl play.
The Pontiac Delta Waterfowl Chapter held their third club dinner at Magnum Outfitters Lodge, where tons of prizes were raffled off and over 100 people gathered.
“We’re the first chapter in Quebec to ever hold a dinner,” said Chris Bertrand, chapter president. “We want to be involved [with our members] and I want to keep the kids involved.”
Bertrand explained that while his group started with only two young duck hunters, they’ve now got 14 youngsters registered with them. The Delta Waterfowl organization prides itself on keeping the traditional hunting activity alive by appealing to a wide demographic and encouraging youth to join their community.
The restaurant saw over 110 people gather inside, where all sorts of raffle draws were being held. Many of the raffles were based around a unique draw to determine how many ballots the contestant would receive.
