Attention all hunting groups...

We hope you all had a good season! Now it’s time for us to start gearing up for next year’s convention. Our membership raffle and SOS auction committees are seeking donations for the 2018 annual convention raffle and auction.

If your hunting group is able to make donation to the auction and raffle fund, or if you have an item to donate, please contact these committees prior to the Annual Convention!

Membership Raffle

The membership raffle is one of the main fundraising sources for WBHA. Donations to the raffle help our association continue to operate at a level we can all be proud of.

Membership Raffle Contacts:
Mark Stumpner – (715) 571-3527
Jeremy Fischer – (715) 489-3579

SOS Donations

As most of you know, the SOS Auction is a big part of our convention, but more important is what the money is raised for – supporting our sport and the people who participate in it, part of which is supporting our friends in Madison. We all know that the anti-hunters attack us every day. We try to be everywhere all of the time, but we can’t. We need friends in Madison who can stop the bills that negatively affect our sport. We have learned what it takes first hand to win an election by helping our friend, former WBHA board of director and now Representative Rob Stafsholt, run a campaign. That said, we are looking for donations for this year’s SOS Auction, whether it’s a puppy, store bought items, handmade items, monetary donations, etc. Personal, business, hunting organizations, or groups – all donations are greatly appreciated. If you have a donation, contact one of us and let us know.

Thank you!
