(March 3, 2021 – DALLAS) — DSC is excited to announce its new Great Lakes Regional Chapter. Based out of Michigan, this chapter will serve the Great Lakes states of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin. This group has years of experience under its belt and will be a powerhouse chapter in its region.

 

Chapters play an influential role in achieving DSC’s vision of a society that values wildlife, engages in its conservation and understands and supports the role of well-regulated hunting in the sustainable use of wild resources.

 

The DSC Great Lakes Regional Chapter plans to focus predominantly on youth education and wildlife conservation in its region. It already has several ongoing projects dedicated to these areas.

 

Dr. Mike Wilmot, president of the DSC Great Lakes Regional Chapter, said he’s excited about the new chapter’s potential.

 

“The affiliation with Dallas Safari Club ensures that projects like the Chapter’s Wish Hunt program (designed specifically for disabled and/or critically ill youth wishing to hunt) and the Chapter’s Heroes Program (recognizing active-duty military and first responders by providing all-expenses paid big game hunting experiences) will prove to be remarkably successful.”

 

Additionally, the affiliation allows the Chapter’s annual “Adventures Wild” auction program to provide the opportunity for hunters, big game outfitters and the general public to connect with one another and collectively engage in the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation. It is currently scheduled for March 4-6, 2022, at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa in Traverse City, Michigan.

Carson Keys, DSC Chapter coordinator, said the Great Lakes Regional Chapter perfectly aligns with the values and culture of DSC and the DSC Chapter System.

 

“We look forward to many years of conservation, camaraderie and friendship with the DSC Great Lakes Regional Chapter,” Keys said.
