We feel it is important to offer this event free of charge to our veterans. In order for this event to continue in this manner, we are seeking sponsors to assist with the costs that are incurred. We are offering levels of sponsorship, by banding birds. During each hunting session, several pheasants will be placed in fields with leg bands. The veterans who are fortunate to harvest a pheasant with a band becomes eligible to be entered into a drawing for a shotgun. If you or someone you know is interested in being a sponsor, please let us know. The following levels cover the cost of veterans:
