The Wisconsin Lions Clubs of Door County have found another way for you to use your deer to help support children around the state. Hunters in Door County donated over 600 hides to the Lions Clubs this past season, which produces thousands of dollars every year for the Wisconsin Lions Camp in Rosholt, Wis. for kids and adults with disabilities. Now, the Lions Clubs of Sturgeon Bay, Forestville-Maplewood, and Sister Bay are collecting deer antlers to be donated to the Northeast Leader Dog and Puppy Programs. With proper supervision, deer antlers are used to help dogs and puppies satisfy their chewing habits with something that does not break or splinter into little pieces. Lion Tom Mueller says their relationship with the Northeast Leader Dog and Puppy Program fits in nicely with their efforts with the blind.
If you stumble upon the deer antlers you have harvested or ones that were recently shed in the woods, you can bring them to any Lions Club member.
