Every spring mama snapping turtle lays her eggs in our sand volleyball court. Rarely to we get the joy of seeing the life cycle continue. Between the raccoons who dig up the eggs and all the volleyball games on our court, it’s not often that the turtles survive to hatch. On Friday, Milos was our turtle savior! He was cutting grass near the court and saw all this movement. Upon closer inspection he found 31 baby snapping turtles! He rescued them and with the help of Nik and Dasa they helped the babies find their way to the water. Applause, applause to our international staff! Thanks Nik for the great photos.
Congratulations to Gabe, our 2018 rock bass contest winner. All summer long guests competed to see who could catch the most poundage of rock bass. On Thursdays we had a weigh in to find out the winner. Each week’s winner went into a pool to be drawn on Labor Day. Today, local guide Mike Errington, picked our winner. This week we will be mailing Gabe a brand-new Fenwick crappie rod and reel. Happy fishing Gabe!
Through-out the summer we donated 79 pounds of rock bass to Wild Instincts wildlife hospital to help feed injured animals.
