Save the dates

January 4, 2018

 

What a year 2017 was for all of us here at Gene's. We thank you all for your business this past year, and hope your 2017 season was filled with lots of great memories made out in the waters and woods. With 2018 officially underway, here is a complete list of important dates or the 2018 season. We wish you all a happy and successful new year!

 

***Important*** 1/26/18 is the deadline to apply for spring turkey for the A and B season. Make sure to stop in and apply if you are planning to chase wild turkey this spring with a shotgun in the A and B season. If you have a friend or relative who hunts turkey, make sure to remind them as people often to forget to apply!
