North Dakota Antler Expo in Dickinson this weekend
BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - If you enjoy hunting and supporting veterans, there’s a special event this weekend. The North Dakota Antler Expo in Dickinson this year has something for everyone.
This space is empty at Dickinson’s Prairie Hills Mall, but Saturday, it will be filled with people who want to help veterans.
“We were looking for a bigger spot to have our event and that is all due to the community’s support of our program,” said Roger Kadrmas, Injured Military Wildlife Project.
The North Dakota Antler Expo raises money for the Injured Military Wildlife Project of North Dakota. The group provides deer hunts for veterans and allows them to participate in Theodore Roosevelt National Park’s culling operation.
“We were granted ten deer tags for the state of North Dakota for these veterans,” said Kadrmas.
Roger Kadrmas says they raise money through the event’s silent auction, firearm raffles, and games. Youth can participate in a BB gun competition and food will be available.
One of the big draws every year is the judging of horns.
“We will be judging mule deer, whitetail, elk and moose, we will have a variety of games and prizes and events going on,” said Kadrmas.
For member Dave Logosz, the event’s mission is personal.
“I was a sniper in Vietnam in 1969 and ‘70,” said Dave Logosz, Injured Military Wildlife Project.
The veteran says he enjoys giving back to other veterans. This weekend, you can too.
