 ALBERTA HUNTING & FISHING NEWS
September Pronghorn Fencing Project 09/03/13

Antelope fencing is confirmed for September 28-29, 2013 on the Pearson and J-J Ranches, approximately 24 kilometres south of Orion on Secondary Highway 88. There are 10 miles of fence to bring up to pronghorn friendly standards. We will be adding a bottom smooth wire at 18" on a three strand barbed wire fence. We will also be required to respace the three wires above. I'll have a half dozen sets of fencing pliers and some spare claw hammers there but if you have your own, please bring them. A carpenter's apron and gloves are also handy. All of the fencelines are adjacent to the road so access will not be an issue. We will need a minimum of 16 people for this project and can handle up to 20.

There are very few facilities near this location so ensure you have sufficient fuel for your vehicle. There is a cardlock station in Foremost that accepts Mastercard and Visa. The closest campground and hotel is in Foremost and that is where most people will be staying. There are no restaurants nearby so please bring sufficient food and water for each day. There are a couple restaurants in Foremost and the campground has water, power, showers and even some good trout fishing. The mosquitoes should be done by then but make sure you bring sun screen and a hat and you should make sure your tetanus shot is up to date as we are working with old rusted wire.

We will meet at the corner of Highway 887 and Highway 501 on Saturday morning. If everyone could be there by 9:00am it would be greatly appreciated. I suspect most people will arrive Friday night in Foremost so we can travel together from there. I'll be down there on Tuesday to run the wire and get everything organized but as cell reception is spotty, you may not be able to contact me after September 24 but if you leave a message I will be able to retrieve it.
