To the editor,
Our Isanti County Chapter of Minnesota Deer Hunters Association (MDHA) would like to extend congratulations to all the successful hunters and a big thank you for donating your deer hides to our “Hides for Habitat” program. Your donations went over 1,100 hides for the first time in many years.
The hides that are dropped in our MDHA boxes triple in value from matching funds, and it all stays local. Our chapter uses these funds to support projects such as: scholarships to send our local youth to “Forkhorn Camps,” deer habitat programs such as purchasing land for WMAs (open for public hunting), putting in food plots on these WMAs, our food plot seed program, the “Isanti County Sportsman’s Club Youth Day” and Dollars for Scholars, to name a few.
Also, thanks to our members that volunteer many hours of their time to run the routes picking up hides and the processing of these hides.
A special thanks to our Hides for Habitat coordinators John Hass and Jenny Carlson for all the time they volunteer to make this program run as smoothly and successfully as it does.

Thanks again for keeping it local!
