Whitetails Unlimited Grants $11,000 to Harold Hoey Memorial

Whitetails Unlimited recently granted more than $11,000 to the Harold Hoey Memorial Fund located in Nelson, Missouri. The fund focuses on helping outdoor-centered endeavors in Saline County, Missouri such as hunter safety, youth shooting sports, and local youth deer hunts. They also help local chapters of nationally based organizations like NWTF and the NRA.

The fund was named after deceased Missouri Conservation Officer Harold Hoey. Harold’s grandchildren started the memorial fund honoring their late grandfather in 1998. Since then, the fund has contributed more than $150,000 to conservation in Saline County.
