Whitetails Unlimited Grants more than $370,000 in Michigan

Whitetails Unlimited has granted $375,710 to various mission related projects in the state of Michigan over the past fiscal year. More than 130 different organizations received grants pertaining to outdoor education, habitat enhancement, and hunting and shooting sports preservation. This was done in large part with the help of Whitetails Unlimited’s 47 Michigan chapters.

Whitetails Unlimited supports hunter rights and the Second Amendment. Hunting is a wholesome family activity that provides outdoor recreation and healthy food for millions of people. Major initiatives of WTU focus on increasing hunting opportunities and providing outdoor experiences for youth, women, veterans, and those with a disability. Large portions of these funds were granted to several shooting sport groups throughout the state that include funds to offset cost of clay targets, ammo, and safety equipment, as well as well as the purchase of bows for underprivileged youth. Along with managing hunts to control the deer population on and around nature center property, funds were also granted to repair food plot equipment that is available for use by all area WTU members.
