Hides for Habitat


Mon, Nov 10th, 2014
Posted in All The Great Outdoors

The Minnesota Deer Hunters Association is asking for your help to improve conditions for future hunters and hunting in general by donating your harvested deer hides.

The Bluff Country Chapter of the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association has “Hides for Habitat” boxes located at Witoka Tavern, Witoka, Minn. and Daniels Ace Hardware, Winona, Minn. These bright orange boxes will be available to drop off your deer hides during the month of November.

Minnesota Deer Hunters Association’s “Hides for Habitat” is a statewide program that collects deer hides during the deer hunting seasons. The proceeds from these donated hides goes to fund critical wildlife habitat restoration projects both locally and statewide enhancing the habitat for current and future sportsmen and sportswomen. Since 1985, over 807,000 hides have been collected and over $4.74 million has been generated to fund habitat projects.

For local information about the MDHA Hides For Habitat program, visit www.mndeerhunters.com. The local contact is Brian Drache (507) 313-1976 or contact the MDHA State Office (800) 450-3337. Please join this excellent recycling effort.
