support the cause
The Wildlife Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to expanding our mission around the world. The Wildlife Center’s mission is to instill core values for conservation and ethical hunting in youth and adults through education, advocacy, and leading by example. This is completed through a variety of education, hunting, and humanitarian projects. A portion of the costs for this fantastic event will go towards these mission projects:
1st-Time Hunt: The dedicated staff at Legends Ranch will take the first-time hunter and put them through an exciting day learning the basics of hunting; culminating in the shooting, harvesting and processing of a doe.
KidsLearn to Hunt: The Learn to Hunt w/Kids program is geared towards families with children from ages 8-17 who are eager to learn more about hunting and conservation.
Adult Learn to Hunt: The Learn to Hunt w/Adults program is a new program for 2023 with the same format as above but geared toward the adult who wants their FIRST whitetail harvest to happen at Legends Ranch.
Purple Heart Hunt: Each year several veterans, who have been awarded the Purple Heart, are selected to come to the world-renowned Legends Ranch for a life- changing hunt.
Youth Challenge Hunt: Each year, the devoted staff and attentive guides at Legends Ranch, assist youth with mental and/or physical challenges in harvesting a trophy northern Michigan whitetail.
Free School WLC Tours: We partner with all of the area schools to host annual tours of the WLC and our conservation curriculum to middle school students at no cost to the school.
