He also discussed the various call types and methods and means of hunting. Most importantly, Geitnerstressed conservation of the species for future generations.
“Many of our students are hunting enthusiasts or at the very least outdoorsmen, so they really enjoyed the insights and information Tim provided. I would like to note that the Wapiti Roost Chapter of the NWTF is a platinum sponsor of our shooting program. We thank Tim for his time and greatly appreciate the support and interest this well know national organization has in our club. Such partnerships add weight to the things we’re doing here,” said Stephen Bagley, program director.
