The Min-Dak Border Chapter of the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association again will be collecting deer hides for its Hides for Habitat program. Collection boxes will be set outside Cabela’s, Orton’s on the Point and Sportsman Taxidermy in East Grand Forks. Because of a lack of volunteers, the chapter this year is partnering with the Thief River Falls MDHA chapter on the hides program. Volunteers still are needed to empty hide boxes regularly. The Min-Dak MDHA chapter has been involved with the program since 1989 and has used proceeds to fund a variety of youth outdoor education initiatives along with the Options deer hunt for disabled hunters at Rydell National Wildlife Refuge. For more information on the program or the MDHA chapter, call (701) 741-1147.
In Grand Forks, the Grand Forks County Wildlife Federation will collect deer hides at the following locations:
Twin City Motors, 1120 S. Washington St.
True North Equipment on Gateway Drive.
S&T Quickstop in Thompson, N.D.
