Kid's Hunting Charity

Recommended Posts

Dear Felllow Sportmsmen:

I'm posting tomight on behalf of the United Special Sportsmen Alliance (USSA), a grassroots, non-profit organization based in Pittsville, WI, that fulfills dream wishes for terminally ill and disabled children across the United States.

If you, your family & friends, church members or business associates know of a deserving children that would like to go on a free hunting, fishing, camping or canoeing trip, please call us, and we will do everything we can to fulfill their wishes. Our goal is to turn no child away, regardless of illness or disability (i.e. we try to match each child to the outdoor adventure most appropriate to their desires and physical limitations). Last year alone, we were successful in placing nearly 300 children on hunting and fishing trips, and we're striving to double that number in 2004. Ever since animal rights groups like PETA pressured the Make-A-Wish Foundation to stop granting hunting and fishing trips to terminally ill youngsters, we have found there is a seemingly endless void to fill.

We are also seeking fishing guides, charter boat captains, hunting lodges and shooting preserve owners willing to donate their services, as well as individual memberships to help us fund our children's trips.

We are a 501(3)© charity (i.e. all donations are tax deductible), and no one in our organization accepts financial compensation of any kind for the work we do. The reward, for us, is in the beaming faces of our kids when they've caught the biggest fish of their lives, harvested their first deer or turkey, or simply roasting marshmallows under the stars at a campsite with their family. Sadly, for many of these youngsters, these trips are the last ones they will ever make before disease steals their lives.

If you have any questions or would like to chat, please contact me at (847) 676-8424, or USSA's founder and president Brigid O'Donoghue at (800) 518-8019. Ms. O'Donoghue (herself a survivor of a life-threatening childhood illness, and one of the warmest, most giving people you'll ever meet) would also be available for an interview should you see fit to help us spread the word in print or on the air. Our new, donated web site is under construction, but you can read more about USSA at www.deerfood.com.

Thank you so much for your time and best wishes for a safe and successful hunting season.

    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.
    • Mike Foster A-1 Archery in Hudson WI March 19th at 6:30
    • Coyle for Donato and a 5th, not as bad as nino for rask because at least donato has some potential to be a better goal scorer but overall yikes, not thrilled with Fentons bigger trades so far, the smaller ones have been good but that is the problem. Either way all signs point toward a rebuild of some kind.
    • It's a prairie zone.  We're right on the northern edge of the hills, Just north of I90 near Sturgis.
    • Wow, Bobber! You resurrected an oldie from the good old days, here!    I STILL haven't tried this yet - although I have bought a LOT of Prague Powder between then and now.😁   I think any roast wold work but you might get a pretty fatty result with chuck.  If you're looking to make corned beef & cabbage for St.Patty's Day and eat it more like a pot roast - a little extra fat might not be bad. But if you're looking to make your own lunch meat or eat it cold, I think chuck would get a little greasy in your mouth.  Corned beef is traditionally made with brisket.   Maybe I'll give this a go - it's almost that magical time of the year - that sweet spot between youth hockey season and youth baseball season when I get to do what I want... sometimes.
    • Heres a pic of those relays. People out riding the trail out here and my sled is in the shop.
