In the spring of 2003, the club hosted its first ever Wild Night Out Banquet and fundraising event. The event consists of a wild game dinner prepared by the members of the club and banquet committee, doors prizes awarded throughout the evening (with many being pistols, guns or rifles) and a wide variety of raffles, silent auctions and red light specials to add even more excitement to the night. This has since become an annual event and has had an increase in attendees every year. The proceeds from this banquet support many of our programs and each year, a minimum of two scholarships are awarded to local high school seniors.
Just one year after starting our Wild Night Out Banquet, we began our Disabled Hunt. With the whitetail deer inhabiting the woods on the property, we took the opportunity to offer disabled hunters the chance to hunt. The club listed its land with the Wisconsin DNR for 2 disabled hunters to hunt during the scheduled October 10-day hunt. We were able to utilize some of our vacant elevated platforms and small camouflage tents were placed atop in order to give the hunters a better vantage point. Our volunteers not only help the hunters onto the platforms and into the tents, but they’ve created food plots, bought better and bigger tents and starting placing trail cameras near the hunting stations. This year, we’ve added handicap-accessible approaches to the platforms and replaced all the tents with enclosed shed-style hunting blinds.
