CFN– The Hunter’s Ball has grown. The yearly event that takes place at the Lion’s Club in Bonville Ontario doubled attendance with over 700 people showing up this year.
Besides eating local wild game donated for the dinner the event features The Big Buck contest and this year gave out over $10,000 in prizes to area hunters that entered.
Mayor Bryan McGillis of South Stormont mc’d the event with his wife Cindy taking a week off of work to make sure everyone was fed along with a huge team of volunteers!
The event added a huge tent to handle the crowd as hunting is a huge tourism driver for South Stormont; especially with more young people getting involved and wanting to learn how to live off the land.
