Whitetails Unlimited Continues "My First Deer" Program

Whitetails Unlimited introduced My First Deer as a pilot program in the last part of 2008, and it was an immediate success. As a result, the WTU board has approved the program to run for the entire year in 2009.

The My First Deer program helps celebrate a life-long memory - a hunter's first deer. While oriented strongly toward youth, the program acknowledges a hunter of any age entering into a very special hunting fraternity of sportsmen and women. This special group of hunters can trace its roots all the way back to the Native Americans and early European settlers in North America.

To mark the occasion, Whitetails Unlimited will provide the successful deer hunter with a personalized color certificate, suitable for framing, and a custom WTU shooter's cap to wear with pride.

"This is a great way to mark this special deer hunting experience, and provide the successful hunter with a permanent reminder of that memorable day," said WTU Executive Director Pete Gerl. "It's a day and a moment in a hunter's life that I promise they will never forget."

Just ask any deer hunter, young or old, about their first deer and they will relive the entire experience as if it just happened yesterday. Responsible hunters today, as in the past, continue to play a vital role in determining the fate of our nation's deer population and the sport of regulated hunting. Honest, ethical hunters are the true conservationists in today's society.
