Waterfowl for Warriors
Organizers / Sponsors
The Waterfowl for Warriors hunting program is organized by volunteers from local law enforcement agencies, American Legion, Fire Department, and hunting enthusiasts. The program is sponsored by City of Anoka and Federal Cartridge as a thank you to local Veterans and active Military members.
We cannot thank our Nation’s military men and women enough. Without their sacrifices we would not have the ability to truly understand what freedom is.
Hunters are required to provide their own shotgun and to purchase all applicable licenses/stamps according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and federal regulations. Volunteers provide everything else needed to create the memories of a quality hunt, including:
- Blinds and Decoys
- Dogs for Retrieving,
- Field Lunch
