The deer you harvest today could mean a lifetime of memories for children at the Wisconsin Lions Club Camp in Rosholt, Wis. The state’s Lions Clubs have started their deer hide collection fundraiser for the current hunting season. So far in the state, hunters have harvested over 17,000 deer in the Central Farmland Zone, including 324 in Door County and 246 in Kewaunee County. Kewaunee County Lions Club member John Mastalir says they collected 808 hides locally last year, which goes a long way in supporting the state organization’s efforts.
The thousands of dollars raised through the sales of the deer hides go to the Wisconsin Lions Camp, which serves kids with mild cognitive disabilities and issues with their hearing and vision. You can find drop-off containers near Blue Water Services in Kewaunee.
