Whitetails Unlimited has completed their 2018-19 fiscal year where 1,818 grants were awarded, totaling more than $2,300,484 for mission-related projects. This mirrors the dollar amount of grants WTU awarded during the past fiscal year. Through the grant program, and with the assistance of their dedicated volunteers and members, WTU has grown and developed its four pillar programs which include Staying on Target, H.O.P.E. for Wildlife, Preserving the Hunting Tradition, and their D.E.E.R. program.
Over the past 37 years Whitetails Unlimited has recruited thousands of conservation minded individuals to join its ranks as chapter volunteers. These WTU volunteers share similar values with others concerned about the white-tailed deer, its habitat, and the future of deer hunting. Their continued dedication will remain a vital ingredient in the organization's formula for success as we continue our journey through the 21st century.
