Last fiscal year Whitetails Unlimited contributed $581,000 through its D.E.E.R. (Developing Educational and Environmental Resources) Program. The D.E.E.R. program consists of organizational initiatives and activities that facilitate the introduction of youth and their families to the great outdoors. This includes events, activities, and educational elements that expose participants to conservation, fishing, hunting, shooting, wildlife management, and environmental education.
As a strong advocate and supporter of hunter safety and hands-on instruction, Whitetails Unlimited is in the forefront of providing hunter education instructor associations with teaching aids to train our nation's youth.
