Please keep in your prayers and thoughts Linda Chester Schylaske. Linda’s husband and long time member of BMHC Dale Schylaske passed away October 16, 2014. Dale was a big part of the club for many years. He was president for several years and helped with many activities the club held. I always looked forward to see Dale and Linda on the mountain, just driving around or out hunting. He ALWAYS had a great story to tell you. Dale you will be missed rest in peace my friend.

We discussed the gates being left open and damaged. We will be getting new combination locks for all of the gates & sending out the combination to all of the members. PLEASE KEEP ALL OF THE GATES CLOSED! We will work on fixing the broken gate at the work detail.
Work Detail: Sunday, September 14, 8am-Noon. Plan on preparing for the Haunted Hayride. Bring any props you might have to set up along the path. Cindy can use empty cardboard paper towel rolls for one of her projects. Please bring weed wackers & small hand tools for setting up props etc. We will need to clear out / mow / weed wack the grass down at Lincoln Road & Trial Slope where the Hayride starts. We will set up some more caution tape in front of food plots to keep Jeeps out.
If there are any new people who are interested in joining up, please have them come to the work detail & they can take a tour then.
A clarification on the taking of doe (again). The age for youth to take a doe and a buck is 16 & under – we are trying to promote youth hunting as much as possible. With the exception of youth hunters, it is still 1 doe per paid membership / family.
Fundraising auction and picnic event for Miranda Miller.
5 year old Miranda was diagnosed with ALL leukemia just before Christmas 2013. Please help support her and her family in this difficult time. Miranda will be coming to the picnic.
Turkey calls, Turkey Art, More Turkey Calls, other Turkey and wildlife art. There will be some great calls from some of the best call makers in the country being raffled or auctioned off. And lots of great turkey call makers and turkey hunters will be at the picnic/auction. Turkey calls for this auction are… WOW.
The date has been set for Saturday, September 13.
The picnic will start 11:00 AM.

We’ve added a couple dates to watch out for:
— The next work detail is scheduled for Sunday, September 14 from 8am – Noon. There will be food after & hopefully a block shoot. We will be working to get ready for the Halloween Hayride as well as general upkeep on the clubhouse & doing work on the food plots if needed.
–The annual Haunted Halloween Hayride is scheduled for Friday & Saturday, October 24 and 25 (rain dates will be October 31 & November 1). Working the hayride will count as a work detail! More info on helping in the months ahead. We will also need someone to hand out fliers at the Pine Grove Halloween Parade the weekend before.
The board would like to make some clarifications on the taking of doe by members. Youth hunters may still take a doe anywhere on the property, in addition to a buck (2 deer) as we want to do anything we can to encourage kids with a solid interest in hunting. Seniors may take a doe anywhere on the property, but will not also be allowed to take a buck. Regular adult members may only take a doe in the Hollow (unless you won a doe drawing at the August meeting). Please ask someone or look at the map if you are unsure of where the Hollow is (area between the pole line & 209). Regular adult members are still only allowed 1 deer per season. If you take a buck, you can not also take a doe & vice versa. Excluding youth hunters, only 1 doe may be taken per family. For example, if a member’s wife takes a doe, the husband may no longer take a doe, but may still hunt for a buck. Please do not hesitate to contact a board member or officer for clarification or if you have any questions.
Dues are DUE! Please contact Edmund to re-up your membership or if you would like to join for the year. Now is a GREAT time to join up. Get some scouting in before the quickly approaching hunting season!
Cindy & Michael will be up on July 3rd, 4th & 5th working on food plots & they can use YOUR help! They will be spreading 18,000 lbs of lime before the rain hits. Please text or call Cindy at 717-629-6391 for times & info.
