The winning community will receive $25,000 to be used for fishing-related causes and have a 30-minute feature show about fishing in their town. There is also more than $7,500 in secondary prizes.

Hunting regulations available
Hunters can now set their sights on getting the 2010 Alberta Guide to Hunting Regulations. The regulations for this year have just become available and can be downloaded free of charge or picked up from Alberta Fish and Wildlife district offices or from places where licences are sold. This year’s regulations include a number of additional opportunities to hunt elk, white-tailed deer, antelope and migratory waterfowl. Starting this year, all first-time hunters are required to complete the Alberta Conservation and Hunter Education Course or the Alberta Hunter competency exam. Information on course enrolment can be found at www.aheia.com. Recreational licences can be purchased online at www.albertaelm.com. Hunters can also contribute information to the annual Game Harvest Survey online at the same address.
