Chukar fund raiser was a huge success

Don Quilici

The 14th annual Carson Valley Chukar Club fund raiser was held last Saturday evening at the Douglas County Fairgrounds.

According to Ron Pierini of the Chukar Club, that one-night function raised a record total of approximately $35-$40,000.

Those monies are to be used for a number of worthwhile projects, such as the rearing and releasing of chukar into the wilds of Nevada, the construction of man-made water collection devices known as “guzzlers,” which are used by small animals and birds, the rearing and releasing of ruffed grouse into various areas of the state, support of the Nevada hunter Education Program, significant contributions to the Nevada anti-poaching program known as Operation Game Thief, etc.
