Initiation to Hunting Course for Youth: Volunteers of the Aylmer Rod & Gun Club (ARGC) once again sponsored this 2-day course, part of the Initiation to Hunting Program of the Quebec Federation of Anglers & Hunters, for youth between 12 & 18 years of age. It was held on Saturday & Sunday, April 22 & 23, 2017, at the Bambou restaurant. We covered the Canadian Firearms Safety Course, which allows you to apply for a Possession and Acquisition License (PAL), as well as the Quebec Hunter Safety Course, which allows you to get your Quebec Hunter's Certificate and to buy hunting licenses. A practical shooting session was also held for our students to handle firearms with live ammunition in a controlled and secure setting.
The objective of this exciting program is to introduce young people to safe, ethical hunting and to effective habitat and wildlife conservation.
Initiation to Fishing Course: The Aylmer Rod & Gun Club held its annual fishing course on Sunday, June 10, 2018, at the Aylmer Marina. The objective is to introduce youngsters from 6-17 years of age to fishing. Registration opened at 8:30 am. followed by instruction from the experts! Youngsters did a little fishing afterward too. Each participant received a free fishing permit valid to the age of 18 plus a free rod & reel outfit. This project is part of a province-wide effort to involve more youth in fishing: Fête de la pêche.

Quebec Gun Registry: There is a Facebook group for those of us fighting to ensure that Quebec doesn't end up with a Long Gun Registry. Let's ensure that the newly-elected Quebec provincial government does not follow through with the gun control plans of the former separatist Parti Quebecois government. Join the conversation.
