The Mason County Livestock and Wildlife Protection Association held its annual drawing. All members that had paid dues by the June 1 deadline were eligible. In addition, all names of members attending the annual meeting in January were also added to the drawing.
The winner of the drawing was Kenneth Durst. President of the association, Charles Loeffler and director, Lex Lehmberg presented Mr. Durst with the Judge pistol.
Kenneth Durst, manager of Mason Feed Store, has been a faithful member of the association for more than ten consecutive years. Kenneth has been the best public relations man for the association. He promotes the association by talking to landowners and hunters and informing them of the purpose and urgency of joining the Livestock and Wildlife Protection Association. Mr. Durst is also the person that collects the ears for bounties and fills out the forms. The officers and directors of the association are proud to present Kenneth with the pistol and also thank him for his efforts and support.
It is not too late to join the Mason County Livestock/Wildlife Protection Association. Dues are .25 @ acre with a minimum of $250. Dues application forms are available at the local feed stores. The association pays bounties on coyotes and bobcats. The association has already paid bounties on 233 coyotes this year.
