Keith Frederiksen named Hunter Sportsman of the Year at the 2016 Revelstoke Rod & Gun Club awards banquet.

Ashley and Franco Bafaro – and 20 friends – paid $300 for the privilege of eating first at the Revelstoke Rod & Gun Club’s annual awards banquet at the community centre on Saturday. Food choices included wild game jambalaya

Keith Frederiksen was named the Hunter Sportsman of the Year at the Revelstoke Rod & Gun Club banquet after successfully taking down a moose, grizzly bear and wolf in 2015.

Clancy Boettger once again took the Art Davis Memorial trophy for biggest fish after reeling in a 17 lb, 4 oz dolly varden.

About 400 people attended the banquet, which is consistently one of the biggest social events of the year.

Food choices included wild game jambalaya, moose with hunter’s sauce, bison meatballs, venison cabbage rolls, elk chow mein, and much more.
