2019 Highlights and Accomplishments:
Our chapter held the annual youth hunt October 5th, 2019 with 12 young men & women participating in trap shooting, learning about native prairie, watching trained hunting dogs work in the field and accompanying a mentor on a pheasant hunt.
Our chapter, in partnership with Tri County PF Chapter, has acquired 52 acres of mesic wet prairie that will be added to the Beaver Creek WMA in southwest Fillmore County.
Our chapter, in partnership with Quail Forever in Caledonia has been awarded a $55,000 grant to develop 35 acres of native grasses with forbs on Winnebago Creek WMA, Yucatan WMA and a State Forestry tract of land in Houston County along with edge feathering habitat technique.
Our chapter will finish acquiring 18.57 acres of land to be added to the Root River WMA in Houston County in summer 2020.
This year’s cash raffle was renamed the YOUTH CLAY TARGET TEAMS RAFFLE and with your support the proceeds from the raffle will be able to financially support the La Crescent High School, Rushford High School and the Lewiston High School trap shooting teams. This partnership has benefited both our chapter and the trap shooting teams. Watch for these youth helping with the banquet on February 8th.
