Each year the Creston Valley Rod & Gun Club hosts a trophy competition to recognize the success of hunters and fisherman, both adult and youth.  Trophy hunting is not wasteful as all the meat is utilized.  What it means is that the hunter has been more selective and fortunate enough to harvest a mature specimen, representative of that species.  There are 21 categories in the hunting completion and 6 in the fishing competition.  The Club extends its thanks to the many local businesses which provide the awards.
To enter the competition, individuals must have purchased their membership prior to the relevant season (August 31 in most cases) and submit their entry to the Committee Chair by the posted deadline (usually mid-January).  The awards are presented at our Annual Banquet in February.
First place in the General Open Category will be either a plaque or a buckle.  To qualify for a buckle, the score of the entry must equal or exceed a set minimum score.

***Scoring this year is Jan. 12 at the Library, 12:00-5:00.
