Archery Tune UP

Joella Bates, from the USA 3D Archery Team, has graciously offered to teach an Archery Tune Up class ahead of deer season!

On September 14th from 10am to 2pm we'll get together in White's Creek, TN to shoot some arrows, get a little expert coaching, cook hot dogs and tell a few lies about deer seasons past. We'll have games, competitions, prizes, food and drinks. All you need to do is bring your bow, some folding chairs and your family. 

This is an great opportunity to receive pointers from a world class archery coach. Joella has won eleven 3D Archery World Championships, she was the first bow hunter to take Africa's big five in a single safari, and she coaches, runs outreach programs, serves on the chapter's board of directors and much more. 
Click here to read more about her amazing career.

I'm looking forward to seeing you there. We'll learn a lot but just as importantly it's a chance to get to know the other fine folks who make up our chapter.  

If you can make it, please email admin@musiccitysci.org and let me know you are coming and how many people are coming with you. 


See you there,
Chris West
President, Music City SCI

May Meeting of Music City SCI

Please join us for the May meeting of Music City SCI. Our guest speaker will be chapter member Zach Knowles of Xtreme Outfitters. Zach will be sharing his experiences as an outfitter as well as telling us what to look for when choosing a guided hunt in North America.

Zach Knowles is a professional outfitter and guide, and has done contract camera work for an outdoor television show in some of the most extreme destinations in the world. He thrives in the harsh places and isn't afraid to take on any challenge in any terrain.

Zach’s family has been in the hunting and outfitting business since he was a small child, and he spent a lot of his young years in Saskatchewan where his father outfitted 70+ deer and bear hunts a year. At 12 years old Zach harvested an elk, mule deer, and antelope on a trip to Wyoming and it was then that his love of the mountains and western hunting was born. Since then he has gone on to guide and harvest many more animals from Alaska to Mexico, and even the Middle East.

He owns and operates Xtreme Outfitters, running 40+ whitetail, mule deer, elk, and sheep hunts a year. His specialty and true love is hunting sheep and giant mule deer. During the 2016-17 season, he was a part of harvesting 10 mule deer bucks over 180", and quite possibly the largest free range desert sheep to come out of the mainland of old Mexico this year. While he's got yearly leases in Kansas, Texas, and Mexico where he returns year after year, he operates different from a typical outfitter.

Zach's specialty is finding particular hunts/tags for his clients, and then accompanying them on the hunt. Sometimes he acts as the sole outfitter/guide, or when the assistance of a local outfitter is needed, he helps glass, pack, and represent the client on the hunt. This works very well for guys that know what they want to hunt but don't know where to start. Zach does the research, handles the logistics, and then goes along to make sure everything goes smoothly. He has multiple clients that have harvested several species on different continents with him.

When he’s not guiding or hunting for himself, you'll find him in the team roping arena or at the ranch taking care of his commercial cow herd.

Directors Meeting

We are meeting at Steve's office to discuss the Banquet. 

As we are now less than two months away from our fund raiser I feel that we need to work under an agenda to try to accomplish as much as possible this meeting. The more tasks and functions that we can define now the less chance for error and the less stress we will have as the event draws closer. I am proposing the following agenda:

1.      Reception Wednesday night

2.      Blaser rifle

3.      Other firearms

4.      Donated hunts and fishing trips

5.      Non-hunt or fishing related donations

6.      Raffle

7.      “Board Items”

8.      Local donations

9.      Table sales

10.   Individual sales

11.   Scripting both event nights

12.   Event promotions

13.   Membership

14.   Event sites and food and beverage

15.   Marketing the event

I know this is an aggressive list so the closer to 5:30 that everyone can arrive the better. I know we are all tired at the end of the day so we will try to get finished as soon as possible. Please feel free to add to the agenda.

Hope to see everyone this weekend at one of the events.

Steve
