Whitetails Unlimited wrapped up its Dream Sheds III Program. The program brought in nearly $75,000 for the Catch-A-Dream Foundation. Since the inception of Dream Sheds in 2012, Whitetails Unlimited has provided grants totaling over $389,000 to the Catch-A-Dream Foundation.
The Dream Sheds concept began when Mark and Terry Drury, who have produced high-quality hunting videos and television shows for 31 years as Drury Outdoors, approached Whitetails Unlimited with an innovative idea. They had collected a large number of exceptional shed antlers from their properties in Iowa and Missouri and were willing to donate them to use as a fundraiser for a worthy cause. Working with WTU, the Catch-A-Dream Foundation was chosen, and the Dream Sheds Program came together. This is now the third time Terry and Mark have provided the sheds that make this program successful.
The program has been enthusiastically embraced at WTU events, and the amount of money raised far exceeds anyone’s expectations. “It’s truly incredible the response we have received from our members,” said WTU President Jeff Schinkten. “They really do have the kids in mind when bidding on these wonderful antlers.”
