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.
