From a mass email sent out last week by Don Peay, SFW founder:
Fellow sheep hunters, the Full Curl Society (FCS) is an exciting new opportunity for those who love wild sheep, and wild sheep hunts. The attached file gives you the who, what, where, and why!
The FCS in conjunction with the Western Hunting and Conservation Expo will be offering 15 world class sheep hunts in drawings for those who attend the Expo, Feb. 11-14 in Salt Lake City, Utah. In our 20 years of wildlife conservation experience, the most important thing we can do is bring all hunters together, and that is the hardest part of it all. So, there is something here for everyone, and we look forward to very exciting sheep conservation and sheep hunting activities in the future. There will also be an auction for many of the best elk, deer, moose, goat, bighorn and desert bighorn as well.
The FCS will be holding their first annual meeting on Saturday, Feb. 13 at 2 pm. For those who attend, there are special free sheep drawing for those who have taken NO sheep, ONE sheep, TWO sheep, or THREE sheep.
If you are a non resident of Utah, there is a special drawing for desert and rocky mountain permits in the $5 application drawing.
If you don’t have and extra $20 Grand laying around, and want a world class Dall sheep hunt, for $20 you can apply for two dall hunts.
If you have already taken all four species of sheep and you want to help see Sheep hunters dreams come true, there will be some new and exciting events and opportunities for you.
Karl Malone and I are co-founders of the Full Curl Society. We have had the extreme pleasure of finishing our Full Curls, and over the next ten years, we want to build a team to see just how many more hunters can complete their full Curls. And, we will continue to do a lot for wild sheep conservation throughout North America.
Several other people are jumping on board as this Big Idea rolls out.
I have asked 8 Full Curl hunters if they would be willing to put up $10 Grand a year to help sheep hunters live their dreams, and 7 have said yes.
Others are going to contribute various other amounts.
I can see the day where the FCS might be able to give away 30 sheep hunts away at the annual Full Curl Society meeting, and we can share with you the wonderful wildlife conservation success stories accomplished by bringing lots of hunters together.
Look forward to seeing you at the First Annual Full Curl Society meeting in SLC on Feb. 13.
To Paul Anderson, Carl Shores, Mark Butler, Travis Jenson, Kenny Labrum and all the other hunters who have the chance to complete your Full Curls this fall, we look forward to welcoming you to the Class of 2009 FCS ! Best of luck.
Glad to answer any questions. It might be the first part of September, as I am going with a new young hunter who will hopefully take his first sheep soon.
Feel free to pass this on to all your hunting friends in cyberspace.
Send in your memberships, and give us time to plan a tremendous 1st Full Curl Society function, Karl and I are very excited about this project !
What's interesting about this new "Full Curl Society" is that it all links back to this address:
Peay's Consulting Co. Inc.
4477 Sunset Circle
Bountiful, UT 84010-5885
Which is also the SFW address. Interestingly, SFW paid over $450,000 in "consulting fees" according to the last tax return available. Sounds like a good gig for Peay <grin>. They also list $429,000 spent for "tags."
Here's the bottom line: where do you think SFW and/or FCS is gonna get Dall sheep tags down the line, and how? If Alaskan hunters don't wake up to what SFW did in Utah and is trying to do up here, it will be a huge mistake.
