FHFH Canada Newfoundland Moose Hunt Winner
The draw was held at the Harvey Sportsman Show April 9, 2011.
COLUMBUS, OH –-(Ammoland.com)- Our yearly fundraiser this year was 300 tickets for a dream of a lifetime. Spring 2010 I was asked to do an FHFH presentation to SCI (Safari Club International) Southern NB Chapter.
After the presentation, I had the chance to meet many avid hunters and that is when I met Murray Cruickshank.
Murray advised me that he ran a moose hunt each year in Newfoundland for 5 days – www.adventurequestoutfitters.com.
They have a 90% success rate each year to bring home a moose.
Newfoundland, Canada has the highest density of moose in the world. Murray said he wanted to help FHFH and donated the complete 5-day Newfoundland Moose Hunt to FHFH Canada, Inc. for 2011! The hunt, meals and accommodations were all included.
April 9th, at the end of the day, we had the draw for the moose hunt. The huge barrel rolled and Candace Mac Issac from the hit TV Show “The Best of Bull Run” on Wild TV drew the lucky name. We were shocked to see it was Gary W. Pearce from Pennsylvania. Gary had viewed our FHFH Canadian website and thought what we were doing to feed the hungry in Canada was amazing. He went ahead and purchased one ticket for $40.00. He was shocked to get our phone call on Saturday night.
He truly did not believe he won and first asked, “Are you sure it is me?”
Gary said he has never moose hunted before and has always wanted to. He said he has always wanted to do a moose and caribou hunt together. Coming to Newfoundland, Canada he will have the chance to do both with Adventure Quest Outfitters.
Thank you to all the people who chose to help feed the hungry in Canada and purchase a ticket. Your prayers were felt across both borders!Caroline Trueman,
Director FHFH Canada
