CFC Youth and Ladies Leagues

Another summer has come and gone and with it our league season. Covid-19 protocols prevented our spring session, but we were able to have both our summer and fall sessions with the proper measures in place. Thank you to all the Women and Youth who participated in our 2020 League Nights at the Calgary Firearms Centre. We hope to see you all again next spring!

What is Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD)?

CWD is a fatal neurological disease that occurs in Mule Deer, White-Tailed Deer, and some Elk and Moose in certain areas of Alberta and Saskatchewan. Hunters and outfitters play a vital role in CWD surveillance and monitoring. The more deer removed from CWD high risk areas, the less opportunity there is for disease transmission.

It is MANDATORY to submit all harvested DEER heads from WMUs 150, 151, 156, 158, 163, 200, 206, 208, 226, 228, 234, 236, 242, 244, 250, 252, 258, 260, 500, 501, 506, 728, and 730. Mandatory MULE DEER ONLY from WMUs 102, 104, 106, 108, 110, 112, 130, 132, 134, 136, 210, 212, 220, 222, 304, 305, 310, and 312.

The AHEIA Calgary Office has a 24/7 freezer for hunters to drop off their heads for testing. The freezer is located in the parking lot behind our building at 911 Sylvester Crescent SW Calgary, AB.
