Edinger educates youth about MN Deer Hunters Association
If you know John Edinger, you know how passionate he is about the outdoors. Edinger shared that passion recently when he stopped by Wadena-Deer Creek Middle School to talk to the fifth- and sixth-grade students about the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association (MDHA).
Edinger talked about how MDHA promotes education to guarantee the future of hunting in Minnesota. He said each year MDHA chapters provide nearly $180,000 in scholarships to MDHA Forkhorn Camps across the state, which provide outdoor and hunting education for nearly 900 youth annually.
In addition, MDHA chapters contribute tens of thousands of dollars each year to support Firearms Safety Training, 4-H Shooting Sports, Jamie Tennison Fund, Youth Field Days, National Archery in the Schools Program, Large Mammal Curriculum (WDC recently received one of these boxes) and more.
Students especially liked receiving a copy of the MDHA’s “White-Tailed Deer Guide.” The full-color guide is an educational publication that’s used as a tool to assist in educating youth about white-tailed deer.
