This is my 16th year of creating Hooters Owl Calendars, and the 12th year posting them online - we've come a long way since our first posted Hooters owl calendar. The first calendars were created as 'Hooters Calendars', a play-on-words for those who might mistake our calendar for another 'Hooters' brand product - and of course it fit well with my humour site joe-ks.com (pronounced 'jokes' but spelled with my first name). Seven years ago, my son Joel, asked if I could tie in the Hooters Calendars with a local owl rehabilitation organization (Owl Canada, in Delta, B.C.).
Since then I've improved the owl calendar design, and started using hi-res owl pictures, donated initially by Owl Canada, and now donated from many owl rehab centers and generous individuals around the world. And to clear up any confusion related to the 'other brand', I started creating the calendars as "Hooters Owl Calendars".
Sales of the hi-res calendars initially included pdf file and laminated sheet options, and for a few years I produced full size 11" x 17" poster calendars (no longer available due to high printing and mailing costs). Increased popularity allowed me to expand into owls from around the world, resulting in an 'extra' Brazil Owls calendar offered in 2013, 2015, 2016, and 2017. And in 2017 I've produced our first "Birds of Prey" calendar.
In 2011 my Hooters Owl Calendar was quoted by mentalfloss.com as being in the "Ten Odd and Awesome 2011 Calendars".
A portion of the proceeds from owl calendar sales goes toward promotion and support of owl rehab centers around the world.
If you have any great hi-res, colour owl (or Birds of Prey) pictures to pass along for inclusion in future Hooters Owl Calendars, or if you have any questions or feedback, contact me using my online feedback form.
Thanks for giving a hoot!
