Whitetails Unlimited's Deer Camp Tour Ready to Start
Special banquet series celebrates deer hunters, while fighting the winter blues.
Appleton, Wisconsin – -(OutDoorWire.com)- Whitetails Unlimited's official kickoff for its 2009 Deer Camp Tour begins Saturday night in Appleton, Wisconsin, and will be a celebration of both deer hunting and deer hunters.
“Our Deer Camps are patterned after our Grassroots II banquets,” said Dave Hawkey, Whitetails Unlimited's VP of field operations. “These events are held in great venues, with great food, outstanding prizes and once-in-a-lifetime hunting and fishing trips. Last year, at some Deer Camps one out of every seven people attending won a gun. At the Wisconsin South Deer Camp this year, everyone attending will win a door prize, and one out of 10 of those door prizes is a firearm.”
Industry support of the Deer Camp Tour has been outstanding this year, resulting in high quality merchandise, travel destinations and outdoor artwork being available in record numbers. “Companies that have partnered with Whitetails Unlimited are getting direct access to the most passionate deer hunters in the country – WTU members,” said WTU Executive Director Pete Gerl. “Our entire staff has worked hard to get great merchandise for door prizes, silent and live auctions, and raffle items. We've got custom-engraved firearms, art from the country's top artists, merchandise that every deer hunter can use, and adventure travel packages that range from African safaris to hog hunting in Texas to fishing in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Attending a Deer Camp is a great way to cure the mid-winter blues.”
These events normally sell out. The Tour includes stops in Iowa, Michigan, Illinois and Wisconsin, and the 2009 Tour concludes with a stop in Titletown, (Green Bay, Wisconsin), on April 24. Full information about WTU's 2009 Deer Camp Tour is available on the WTU website, www.whitetailsunlimited.com.
