Isanti Co. Chapter receives MDHA ‘Legacy Award’

MDHA’s Hunting Heritage Legacy Award recognizes MDHA chapters for outstanding activity in their local community. Recently, the MDHA board of directors recognized the Isanti County Chapter at the “Monarch Buck Award” level which is the highest level of achievement. Believing that the best way to secure our hunting heritage starts at the grassroots, MDHA encourages its chapters to think globally but act locally.

The Isanti County Chapter achieved ambitious goals for contributions toward hunter recruitment and education through assisting in sending local youth to MDHA Forkhorn Youth Summer Camps (for hunter education), sponsoring and teaching firearms safety classes and donating to numerous youth programs.

The Isanti County Chapter, like all MDHA chapters, use a variety of fundraising programs, such as special raffles, hides for habitat and banquet fundraising, MDHA chapters make local habitat improvements, contributed to land acquisitions of new wildlife management areas for public hunting opportunity, as well as provide valuable conservation projects in your region and all over Minnesota. In recognition of MDHA’s Hunting Heritage Legacy Award, the Isanti County chapter is receiving a firearm to be raffled at their local banquet honoring the MDHA volunteers as well as the attending members.

The Isanti County Chapter Banquet is Saturday, Feb. 18, 5 p.m-on at the Cambridge American Legion Club. For ticket information, call Patrick Donahue at 763-286-1893 or John Erlandson Jr. at 763-689-49992. Tickets, which include MDHA membership and dinner, are $35.
