Estevan Wildlife Federation hands out annual awards

It might have been in a different format, but the Estevan Wildlife Federation still found a way to hand out its annual year-end awards.

The assortment of trophies and certificates was recently presented at their clubhouse near Boundary Dam. The awards were presented in small groups to meet COVID-19 regulations.

Traditionally the EWF would present the trophies during a banquet in January or February.

Still, the EWF managed to salute young people and adults for their success in hunting birds and big game, for catching fish and for taking photographs.
