Calhoun County Co-Op hosted Hunters Night Out Aug. 19. About 150 hunters showed up at the co-op on South Pelham Road. The three-hour event gave about 10 vendors an opportunity to show their products which included deer plot seeds, muck boots, tree stands, game cameras, deer attractants, and 4-wheelers.

Hamburgers and hotdogs were served, and a Yeti cooler was raffled, with proceeds going to Jacksonville Christian Academy.

Calhoun County Co-Op manager Tommy Thompson and assistant manager Cody Galloway said they were pleased with the turnout. They explained that they have the event almost every year so that hunters can see what’s available to them.

“The number one thing is that we want to be able to let everyone see what a good deal they can get on their seed for this fall,” said Galloway. “The second thing is that it allows hunters the opportunity to get to see a lot of products at one time and ask the vendors questions.”
