Fishing to End Hunger

We at the Outreach Program of Brainerd lakes have made it our goal to provide food to the hungry. This year we hope to pack 260,000 meals to malnourished children in the area. By taking part in the competition you'll get a full day of fishing, a chance to take home some prize money, as well as raise money for those in need. Unable to attend?

We're losing 6,000 acres of habitat every day. At the National Wild Turkey Federation we're working to fight this. Our goal is to conserve wildlife habitat and protect our hunting heritage. After years of dedicated work the turkey population of North America has hit an all time high at 7 million. However, our work is far from over. In the next 10 years the NWTF hopes to improve 4 million acres of wildlife habitat as well as open 500,000 acres of land for hunters.
