Remarks

The transmitter was in an ammo box at the base of a foot bridge at the Santee Town Center Community Park behind the YMCA Aquatic Center. The bridge is a sturdy iron construction. I put a mag mount antenna on top of the structure at the north end of the bridge. Since it was black and above eye level, most hunters walked right past it a few times. Here are the results. Lowest score of (minutes + (2 x miles traveled)) wins. Dick and Mark, 36 minutes, 6.2 miles traveled = 48.4,Cliff, 51 minutes, 5.6 miles traveled = 62.2, Joe and Tony,47 minutes, 10.4 miles traveled = 67.8, Bruce and Bruce, 48 minutes, 14.5 miles traveled = 77.0,The post hunt celebration was intended to be at Phil's BBQ. However, with about 50 people waiting outside, we diverted to Mimi's. Everyone enjoyed the evening.
