2019 WITO Deer Camp is a wrap.  Thanks to everyone for the kind words, encouragement and support.  Just wanted to share a brief update, as I am sure you will hear or see more about it sooner than later.

We had 16 hunters, 5 of them took and passed hunter education to start their weekend.  The hunters were treated to various workshops including dog tracking (Thanks to Darren Doran), Butchering & Processing (thanks to Newton HS FFA), Deer Biology (NJDFW - Carole Stanko), Wildlife Law Enforcement with a NJDFW CPO,  Wild Game Prep and cooking (Chef Chad), where to hunt, how to find land and more...  

Saturday they were paired up with a mentor for a morning and afternoon hunt.  Deer, bears and more were seen and one lucky hunter harvested this beautiful 9pt buck on public land.

 

The NWTF - Women in the Outdoors, UBNJ, Wildilfe Women and NJDFW partnered to provide this outstanding experience and Fairview Lake YMCA Camps was our home base for the weekend.

Absolutely an amazing and successful program.  Congrats to everyone involved.  

Agree on the xbow...always treat any firearm as if it were loaded.  That means xbows too
