Slide 5: From The President RICHARD L. GOTSHALL, PRESIDENT SFCSCI Hello everyone, Happy New Year. I know there are a lot of people happy to see 2010 gone. A new year is upon us and a new year of hunting. I realize that there are still hunts going on right now but I don’t have any planned unfortunately. My wife and I did go on a great moose hunt in the Yukon with both of us taking big moose. An article will follow soon. As for the club, all has been quiet lately. We have been slowly and diligently working on our 2011 fundraiser. It’s going to be as great as ever. We still need your help though. Any silent auction donations you can donate are always appreciated. As always if you contact me I will have the items picked up so there is no hassle to you. The National Convention in Reno is fast approaching, January 26th through the 29th. Quite a few of us are going again this year. If you haven’t been you are really missing out. It is the ultimate sportsman’s paradise. I’m sure a lot of you paid close attention to the political races that went on in November. We gained some ground here in South Florida in the hunting conservation arena. This year, when I travel to Washington DC to speak to our congressman regarding hunting and conservation I will be met by a friendly face in Allen West. We all were strong supporters of his during his campaign. I am confident he will stand behind SCI in our efforts to protect hunting. It will be fun trudging thru DC for a change. Thank you, Richard Gotshall President 954-410-5622 Rich@Paulbangeroofing.com 3
Slide 6: From The Vice President By KEITH ALMEIDA Hello Everyone, I hope that a safe and fun holiday season was had by all. It’s that time of year again when our annual fundraiser is upon us. As usual, we have been getting some pretty generous donations from both outfitters and members this year. We can always use more donation items so please, if you have any items that are in good condition that you feel the club could use for either the silent auction or the raffle, please contact either myself or one of the board members and we will make arrangements to have them picked up. Anyone who would like to help with the event would certainly be welcomed as we are always in need of extra hands. Also, Please remember to check our website on a regular basis. It will continually have updated info on the Live Auction as well as a list of our featured Raffle Items as they become available. That’s all for now from the VP wishing everyone a healthy and Happy New Year! Very Truly Yours, Keith Almeida Vice President – SFC/SCI 954-772-9957 kalmeida@ai-roofing.com 4

Slide 15: The Roller Coaster Hunt of a Lifetime By Keith Almeida There I was on the last day of my bear hunt. My guide had left my side for a brief moment to go and glass for bears. No sooner did he get fifteen feet away when a nine footer stood up not more than 25 yards in front of me. He walked the river bank right towards me, crossed the game trail in front of me which lead to the creek, and proceeded further down the river. I must have looked like an idiot jumping up and down like some sort of crazed cartoon character, trying to get my PH’s attention, all while keeping as quiet as possible to avoid my detection from the bear. As soon as he saw me, the bear winded us and took off straight uphill, bounding for the mountainside in full sprint. My whole life I had dreamed about hunting a monster bear on Kodiak Island and at that moment all hope had seemingly been crushed. I mean, how could I get skunked in bear central, this wasn’t possible. To truly appreciate the shear & utter disappointment I was feeling, I should probably go back ten days earlier to when this whole roller coaster ride started. When I first arrived in Kodiak, I was as gitty as a child on Christmas Morning and I had every reason to feel that way. I was hunting with my friend Mark Spillane, I had a great outfitter in Sam Fejes, and I was fulfilling one of my lifelong hunting goals. Well, those feelings were cut a little short when I found out we were going to be stuck in Kodiak for a couple of days. Poor weather had grounded us and we were not able to take the float plane over to Olga Bay which was our final hunting destination. After a cozy two day stay, we were off and I am here to tell you that the scenery on the way over was nothing short of spectacular. Mark and I were hunting two separate areas and we would go our separate ways until the end of the trip. This was truly a remote location, and in true Alaskan fashion, it would prove to be another great adventure in the world’s last great frontier. For the next six days I found myself hiking an hour or so before sun up to different locations to glass all day looking for a shooter. Days were about 35 degrees, rainy, and very windy. Definitely not comfortable conditions in anyone’s book. We would normally stay until after dark, before we made our way back to the cabin. What added to the difficulty of trekking across this terrain was the fact that the contour of the land was what I would describe as an “egg carton”. The landscape was riddled with these extremely annoying 1 to 3 foot holes that were all but invisible even in daylight hours due to the tall grass that covered the mountainside. On my previous trip to the Alaskan mainland I had trapest across the Berring Swamp to bag my monster moose and climbed a mountain in search of a goat, 13
Slide 16: but traveling over a minefield of holes was certainly not like anything I had ever anticipated. I guess it was more annoying than anything. We spotted many bears each and every day but none were, according to my guide “Kodiak worthy”. On my sixth day my hunting pulse spiked once again. I got my first glimpse of why this Island chain is known around the globe for its bears. We spotted a 10 foot plus bear wading in the shallows of a creek fishing for his salmon lunch. We made our way ever so cautiously toward him. By the time we got down the hillside, he was on the other side of the waterway and was bedding down for a nap. We decided to wait it out. How long could an afternoon bear nap take anyway? Well after several hours passed, the big fella was up and about, apparently hungry for another sashimi snack. This time we could really get a good glimpse of this fine specimen. He was full bodied and judging by his coat and belly, he was about ready for a winters’ slumber in some distant cave. His paws were absolutely huge and garnered long white claws, indicative of a true trophy boar. This was it, the moment I had been waiting for since my childhood. We crept a little closer so I could find a good rest to anchor my rifle, I carefully slide the safety to fire . . . POW ! ! ! The unthinkable had occurred. My trusted rifle that had performed exemplary for me time and time again had gone off accidentally. A panic stricken chill came over my body. I ran to the nearest tree, 14
Slide 17: glassed for my bear to see if somehow I could salvage this huge debacle. By the time I aquired him in my scope, he was slowly trotting away and then appeared like he was going to stop. Wow, could I really be this lucky. I quickly ejected the live round from my gun and replaced it in order to re-cock my weapon. The bear, with all his mammal curiousity, had stopped in his tracks and looked back giving me a perfect shot quartering towards me at about 100 yards. My original forty something yard shot would have been better, but at this point 200 would have suited me just fine. I took a deep breath and slowly squeezed the trigger . . . Click. Nothing. At that moment the image of that bear in my crosshairs was eternally burned into my mind. My earlier panic had now changed to inexplicable rage beyond belief as my dream bear casually strolled off into the thick cover. I was about a nano second away from wrapping my gun around a tree, swarovsky scope and all. Luckily I contained myself. Losing an opportunity on a trophy animal is never easy, but this unfortunate chain of events was bordering on the brink of insanity. From that point on, I was on a mission to find another bear of equal or better status. The problem was I was now on my seventh day of a 10 day hunt. Maybe, just maybe, the hunting gods had a little something tucked away for me. The next few days weren’t exactly productive. We had tried several other areas for fear that my gunshot may have scared off the bears near our honey hole. We tried everything and everywhere, but to no avail. I did take a nice full bodied fox, but it was no consolation for my lost bear. I eventually found myself on the last day of the hunt clinging to a small hope that I could somehow pull a rabbit er or bear, out of my hat. On that last day my nerves were at defcon 4. We decided to go back to the scene of the crime praying that all the local inhabitants had forgotten about the gunshot a few days before. This brings me to where I began this story, stairing at 15
Slide 18: the tail end of a nine footer running away with my last hope of redemption. The sudden realization came over me that I only had two more hours left of daylight left and I was flying out the next morning. After all I had been through, I was gonna get skunked and there was nothing that I could do about it. Sure I had been skunked before. Most recently on a mountain goat hunt when I got stranded on a glacier in an Ice & wind storm for 36 hours, but that was mother nature. This was just absolutely awful. I could still see the image of my bear in my crosshairs from days before. Suddenly I heard a mild whistle. It was one of my guides getting my attention from up the path. (At this point I had commandeered Sam Fejes himself to help out). He looked crazy excited so I scurried up to him as quiet as I could. And there HE was. The SAME bear from the other day was slowly meandering down the creek right towards us. There was absolutely no mistaking his square head and long white tipped claws. I quickly got my self into position and patiently waited for him to make his way right down to me. He finally gave me about a fifty yard broadside shot on the far bank of the creek. My first shot found its way right in the bread basket and I knew it was a good one. At first it had appeared that my .338 win mag had indeed tamed the beast until my PH yelled out, “hit em again!” My second shot also hit true but had seemed to trigger his angry button. This animal went from lethargically mulling around to full charge in an instant. He was coming like a freight train, and he meant business. At this point I put a third round in him and Sam (Fejes) shot him also. This spun him around not more than 15 yards away just on the other side of the water. I then gave him one more anchoring shot for good measure. WOW! Did that really just happen? There was about an hour left of daylight on the last day of my hunt and I was standing over an absolutely beautiful animal. I now believe in the hunting gods and pay homage to them often. Ironically, Mark had gotten his trophy bear on the last day also. Mine was BIGGER! 16

Slide 31: Safari Club International Hunter’s Code of Ethics Recognizing my responsibilities to wildlife, habitat and future generations, I pledge: G To conduct myself in the field so as to make a positive Contribution to wildlife and ecosystems. To improve my skills as a woodsman and marksman to ensure humane harvesting of wildlife. To comply with all game laws, in the spirit of fair chase, and to influence my companions accordingly. To accept my responsibility to provide all possible assistance to game law enforcement officers. To waste no opportunity to teach young people the full meaning of this Code of Ethics. To reflect in word and behavior only credit upon the fraternity of sportsmen, and to demonstrate abiding respect for game, habitat and property where I am privileged to hunt. G G G G G 29
Slide 32: Safari Club International started the Sportsmen Against Hunger program in 1989. Since then, tens of millions of meals have been served at local soup kitchens, food banks, or other charitable organizations, such as The Salvation Army and Kids in Distress. Some hunters take their harvest to a licensed meat processor, pay for the processing themselves, and then donate the meat to the needy. Other hunters choose to share the meat from their freezers throughout the year. Because the demand for low-fat, low-cholesterol, preservative-free, high-protein meat is so great, these offerings by SCI members are vital to the nutritional success of food banks across America and the world. In 2006, 314,275 pounds of wild game meat were donated to relief organizations; in 2007, the figure had jumped to 377,072 lbs., which is the equivalent of 1,508,288 meals. In the 2008 season, we set a new record with 412,254 lbs. That's more than 206 tons! 2010 SCI South Florida Members Donations: Joe Hand - 30 lbs. Ray Moses - 200 lbs. Dan Beckham - 2000 lbs. Mike Yeary - 2000 lbs. (WE NEED DONATIONS!!) SCI South Florida Chapter will help process or provide transportation to collect the meat. Please call Sean McCann at (954) 914-6624 for any and all donations. 30
