SCI Northeast Wisconsin Chapter
By: Marty Witczak, President

Greetings! As I sit here contemplating what to write about in this article, I am reminded that I should, and am, grateful to be here and present to write the article. It has been a year since our world has been turned upside down due to the Coronavirus. We have had to adjust and alter our lives and activities, including our dearly beloved sports of trophy hunting and fishing.

 

   The SCI Northeast Wisconsin Chapter continues to grow and celebrate accomplishments. We succeeded for the 4th year in a row to meet our new membership goal. It is a great feeling to know that we are finding individuals to join in our passion to protect and preserve our hunting rights. Mark Snyder was also the 1st place recipient for our group and membership size, to win best SCI website. Mark has won this distinguished award several years in a row. This year, 2021, Mark Snyder and Cal Ort were successful in organizing and getting our on-line auction up and running on the website for the number of donated hunts, fishing excursion and tropical vacations both in the US and abroad. Unfortunately, we, the members of the board had decided in November of 2020 to cancel our Chapters participation in the Hunting and Fishing Show and our SCI Banquet and Live Auction at the Stadium View in Green Bay, Wisconsin. With peace of mind and acknowledging that we made the best decision to keep our members safe Mark and Cal proceeded full steam ahead to organize the on-line auction. My wife and I even tossed our hats in the ring and bid on a hunting trip to a country that has been on our bucket list.

 

   If you missed participating in the NE Wisconsin Chapter or the Badger Land auction, you are still able to bid through the Wisconsin Chapter on-line auction held March 26th and 27th.

 

    In closing I would just like to recognize four of our chapter members that flew to Mexico in mid-January for a Coues Deer Hunt, sponsored by Erwin’s Outdoors. Walt Janke, Jeff Borree, Steve Huss and Mark Snyder experienced no problems flying in or out of Mexico. They enjoyed a great hunt, lots of fun and plenty of outstanding food!

 

Remember, shoot straight, and make the first one count!

Marty

 

 

I look forward to seeing you at one of
our Member's Meeting.
