2020 Alvin Emmel Memorial Whitetail Contest: As we all daydream about cooler temperatures, don’t forget to daydream about that buck that no one has seen. The one (or more) that get shot every year that we hear about and sometimes score while hearing from the hunter, “I wish I’d have signed up for the contest.” Don’t be that guy or gal, attached is the 2020 contest form. As always, you can also sign up online at https://ccwma.org/payment-center/.Thanks you for your continued cooperation on the MLD program, support of CCWMA, and interest in our native resources. Looking forward to another rewarding season.
