Each week during the hunting season Flathead Wildlife, Inc. runs a “Preserve the Tradition” newspaper ad highlighting successful young hunter, or hunters, with game at FWP check stations as a way to highlight and protect our outdoor heritage.

We welcome photos from any young hunter, first animal or successive, and it might be any wild game harvest: deer, elk, antelope, ducks, turkeys, etc. It’s all good.

To submit a photo to “Preserve the Tradition” email the photo to flatheadwildlife.inc@gmail.com By sending us a photo, you are giving permission for the submission to be posted in Flathead Wildlife’s “Preserve the Tradition” ads. It will also be posted on FWI’s Facebook page and website.

Please include the hunter’s name and age. Our congratulations to the hunter and helping to “Preserve the Tradition”.

Flathead Wildlife, Inc. also works with Flathead Electric Roundup For Safety and FWP to give every successful graduate of the Hunter Education Program a hunter orange safety vest.

Flathead Wildlife, Inc. has made several donations to the Flathead 4-H Shooting Sports Program. The program works with up to 400 youth ages 9-18 to teach safety and proficiency with archery, air rifle and air pistil, small bore, shotgun and muzzleloaders. The program also has a hunting skills program.
