Plymouth, WI – June 13, 2011
John Butts is a successful Pro Angler on the AIM Pro Walleye Series and other walleye tournaments. John also owns a full-service guiding business that operates from Dryden, Ontario. Fishing guide services access the famous Lac Seul fishery, as well as Wabigoon Lake and Dinorwic Lake. Whitetail hunts take place in the expansive Ontario wilderness – the northern range of some of the largest whitetails in North America.
For 2011, John Butts Outdoors has renewed their Marketing Partnership with AIM. John is providing two 5-day whitetail hunts to the participants and fans of the 2011 AIM Pro Walleye Series. Each package is valued at $2,800. These hunting packages will be offered on a “silent auction” basis leading up to the Dubuque, Iowa and Akaska, South Dakota tournaments. The winning bidders will be announced on Day Three of each tournament.
“I am pleased to promote my guiding business by partnering with AIM,” John said. “The Dryden Ontario area is a ‘sleeper area’ for trophy whitetails in North America. This partnership with AIM will help highlight the deer hunting opportunities in the area. It also demonstrates that I am 100% behind the innovations that AIM is bringing to the world of competitive angling, including the exclusive AIM Catch-Record-Release™ format.”
Bids for these two hunting packages can be submitted by email to [email protected] or by telephone to the AIM office by calling 920-526-3399. The bidding starts at $1,000 for each package, that is, about one-third of the regular price. A credit card number will be used to guarantee the bid – but no charges will apply until the winning bids are announced. Bids will also be accepted onsite at each 2011 tournaments beginning with the pre-event Rules Meeting. Bidding progress will be posted on a special thread on the AIM Forum. The bidding will close one hour before the Day Three weigh-in and the winning bidder will be announced on stage.
