We are a local group that has been in existence for nearly 35 years. A group of concerned outdoorsmen got together in 1981 and formed Dakota Sportsman to ensure we as outdoors man have a voice. We send a portion of yearly membership fee to South Dakota Wildlife Federation, so you are a member of both groups. The SD wildlife Federation is a very important club to outdoorsman. They pay two full time lobbyists to fight for the rights of outdoors men and women in our state capital. One of our main goals is to get kids involved in the great outdoors show them the right ways to hunt and fish they are the future of not only our club but our sport.
In Feb. of every year we put on an ice fishing tournament for kids. Every kid leaves with not only a prize, but hopefully a new love for the outdoors. Every year we help pay for a child to go out to Rapid City for a summer camp where they learn outdoor skills and possible skills in a future outdoor related job. In the fall of the year we participate in Sports fest at our local trap range, where kids get a chance to shoot shotgun and bow, there’s also fishing seminars we also provide lunch for the kids.
I would like to thank for considering joining Dakota Sportsman Inc.
