Waterfowl for Warriors

Organizers / Sponsors

The Waterfowl for Warriors hunting program is organized by volunteers from local law enforcement agencies, American Legion, Fire Department, and hunting enthusiasts. The program is sponsored by City of Anoka and Federal Cartridge as a thank you to local Veterans and active Military members.

We cannot thank our Nation’s military men and women enough. Without their sacrifices we would not have the ability to truly understand what freedom is.

The Youth Waterfowl for Warriors hunting program is for the sons, daughters and grandchildren of active Military Service Members or Veterans. Youth ages 10 to 17 are eligible to participate. Firearm safety certification is required for youth age 13 to 15 years. A non-hunting adult chaperone must accompany the youth during the hunt.

Participants will experience a guided hunt with mentoring as needed in both a field and shoreline location within the Anoka Nature Preserve. Lunch (hamburger/chips/water/cookie) will be provided after the hunt.
