The Olivet, Michigan Lions Club hosts a Squirrel Tournament every year.  Proceeds are used to support the Lion's Eyeglass mission.  Last year over $800 was raised.  It was an unwritten rule that one of the hunters in each party had to be a young-un. 

Folks who did not want to take their squirrels home to eat had the option of donating them to the Charlotte Optimist club for their wild game dinner.

Last year's after-action report

Olivet Lions Sponsor Annual Squirrel Hunt

   67 teams (134 hunters) registered for the annual squirrel hunt sponsored by Whitetail Farms Farm Fresh Market in Olivet.  The weather was mild but the snow was deep.  Ultimately Wyatt Degroot and Luke Nowak took first prize with 10 squirrels at 20.33 pounds.  Greg Saltzman, owner of Whitetail Farms Farm Fresh Market, donated $700 to the Olivet Lions Club.   Many hunters donated their squirrels to the Charlotte Optimist Club for their Wild Game Dinner.  Sponsors included R & D Salvage, God’s Country Outdoor TV, Simply Outdoors TV, Narrow Lake Country Store, Coachlight Inn, FUG, FML - Beck’s Seeds (Seth Cords), Backroads Saloon, Whitetail Farms Farm Fresh Market and the Olivet Lions Club.

Activities like this are one reason I love living near a small town.
