Benefit Fund For The Family Of Jeremy Fischer

The Wisconsin Bear Hunters Association has established a fund to support Jeremy Fischer’s family in their time of need.

Jeremy was a longtime member of the WBHA Board of Directors and donated countless hours to further our sport.

Please consider making a donation.

A man, a friend, a father, a husband, but also a houndsman!

The Houndsman

The game you’ve treed, the game you’ve freed, the dogs you’ve seen, the places you’ve been. I will always look for you at every tree and one things for sure, I’ll never forget you and you will never forget me. Someday I’ll see you in the land of the biggest trees where I know you will be waiting for me!

R.I.P. Jeremy ‘Minnow’ Fischer

The Wisconsin Bear Hunters Association sends its thoughts and prayers to all of you who knew and loved Jeremy.
