Wounded Veteran Hunt Program
Read this inspiring
Wyoming Wildlife Federation participates in the Wounded Veteran Hunt program, which thanks wounded service men and women for their duty and service by providing them with a complementary hunting experience in Wyoming's beautiful backcountry. For more information about these hunts, please read about the Wounded Veteran Hunt through WWF's Executive Director, Steve Kilpatrick, "Want a Rewarding Hunt? Try a Wounded Veteran or Youth Hunt".
The Wounded Veteran Hunt program has been sponsored by Encana, and would not be possible without their donations.

Wyoming Sportsmen thank Governor Freudenthal:
Here at WWF, we work hard to represent our members' interests!
At the end of June 2008, nine newspapers around the state ran a thank you advertisement from sportsmen and women to Governor Freudenthal (see above). We chose the timing of the advertisement to coincide with the Western Governor's Association (WGA) meeting. Governor Freudenthal is chairman of WGA. With the heads of 19 states and 3 Pacific island territories in Jackson, Wyoming to discuss regional topics affecting the West, we wanted to make sure that our Governor received our thanks, and that sportsmen's interests were noted. Our goal was to bring sportsmen together from all over the state, to speak with one voice, and thank the Governor for his efforts to have energy development conducted responsibly in our state.And we succeeded! In the end, we had 82 endorsements from a wide range of businesses (butchers, taxidermists, retail shops,outfitters, gunsmiths), sportsmen's groups (local, statewide, and national), and professional organizations. We had a great time getting out around the state, meeting a wide range of people who are all really passionate about protecting the excellent hunting, fishing, and outdoor recreation opportunities that we are so lucky to have here in the Cowboy state.
