Whitetails Unlimited Is Working For An American Tradition

Whitetails Unlimited is a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment, hunter rights, and promoting the sport of regulated hunting. Last fiscal year WTU issued 283 grants and more than $540,000 in support of various initiatives through the Preserving the Hunting Tradition program.

Every year America’s hunters and target shooters have an economic impact of over $110 billion and support over 866,000 jobs. Hunting is a wholesome family activity that provides outdoor recreation and organic food for millions of U.S. citizens. Major initiatives of Whitetails Unlimited focus on increasing hunting opportunities and providing outdoor experiences to youth, veterans, and the physically challenged. This is done through our many chapter mentored hunts.

“Our hunting preservation program encourages people to get into the outdoors,“ says Program Services Director Russ Austad. “Whether that’s through a youth hunt, a veteran hunt, or some other version of a mentored hunt.”
