PEMBROKE – The first annual screening of the Hunting Film Tour held at Festival Hall on February 6 turned out to be a great success. The event, hosted by GoHuntBirds.com gave hunting enthusiasts the opportunity to view some of the hunting industry’s top video productions. Attendees represented the hunting community from all over Ontario and Quebec.
“It was like a night at the movies, only these movies were about hunting and we got to watch them on the big screen while enjoying pizza and beer with our hunting buddies. The Hunting Film Tour will likely become an annual event that GoHuntBirds.com will continue to host to help generate interest in the hunting film industry and raise money for charities,” said Marc Lapierre, event organizer and founder of GoHuntBirds.com, a huge advocate of conservation and ethical hunting practices.
The event raised over $800, which will be donated to four local hunting
conservation charities – The Upper Ottawa Valley Ducks Unlimited Chapter, the Pontiac Delta Waterfowl Chapter, the Algonquin Safari Club International Chapter and the Renfrew County Quality Deer Management Association Branch. “Donating to these organizations that give back to the hunting community is the key component with hosting an event like this,” explained Lapierre.
Raffles, auctions and door prizes kept the crowd entertained throughout the evening and Patrick Heinrichs won a new Winchester rifle valued at $1,000.
