Veterans served


Our mission is to give our American heroes a weekend of guided duck hunting on the storied Horicon Marsh home cooked meals, brotherhood healing and sincere gratitude for everything they have given us. Thanks to the generosity of donors, to date we have been able to provide seven annual duck hunting weekends filled with relaxation, laughter and healing to our American heroes. And some years, even a duck or two.

Serving Veterans because Freedom isn't Free

This film produced by Legendary Whitetails is dedicated to those who have served and provides a great depiction of what the annual event is all about.

The film documents the annual event - a duck hunt for veterans on the historic Horicon Marsh. The event is driven by hard working volunteers who provide warm homemade meals, lodging, and prizes, in addition to guided duck, goose, and upland bird hunts with the help and generosity of many local donors.

What We Do

Each year we host a weekend of hunting with over 40 volunteer guides (who donate their time, boats, dogs and gas), plus 30 staff volunteers to give this opportunity to 50 or so veterans.

Brotherhood and Camaraderie

What veterans are saying

Most fun I've had in a long time, planning on going again next year - Marty Will
I think what you guys are doing is phenomenal, it's for a great cause... - Craig Wiese
Thanks for a WORLD CLASS weekend!! Cant wait til next year! - Matt Owens
Every hunt is memorable, but flying out to WI to meet with friends and other combat vets was something unimaginable. This was by far one of the best hunts I have ever been on. Sleeping in the VFW and just being surrounded by brothers, hearing stories, talking about the hunts, and eating great food, to do it again the next day. I can't thank everyone enough that puts so much work into this event. They made me feel like family and I gained life time friends all because of this hunt. Semper Fi - JP Miller
