Tickets available now for both raffles above. Please contact me if you would like to purchase!



Only 750 tickets available for the dart rifle...why not try your luck at winning one before making such a big purchase and in doing so, support the MDBA. $25 per ticket or 5 tickets for $100. Last year, the winner bought $200 in tickets....can you say a very happy, happy, happy winner?



Only 1500 tickets available for the General Raffle. $10 per ticket with some great prizes! A very large LED tv, a great gun, a vacation for your family and several cash prizes...the vacation at Iowana Beach Resort is a huge hit at the MDBA every year!

Less than 3 weeks until the MDBA banquet at the Arrowwood Resort in Alexandria, MN. The MDBA would like to continue to support the efforts in the industry and we can't do it with out the help of your generous donations! These are unsettling times in the industry right now and your donation is needed more than ever! Please consider donating and supporting the MDBA!



In 2012, the MDBA once again contributed $5,000 to the travels of Steve Porter’s Traveling Whitetails. Steve travels the upper Midwest educating our children on good hunting decisions in the hopes that it leads to good life decisions. The MDBA recently donated $5,000 to the American Cervid Alliance (ACA) to support challenges on over-regulation and double standards this industry faces. Earlier in 2012, the MDBA was able to donate to organizations such as Mississippi, Tennessee, Louisiana, West Virginia and New Jersey to further their future in deer farming. We are proud to say that the MDBA also was able to pay Minnesota’s portion of the national lobbyist in 2012 for the first time in years.



Our hopes are, with your donations, to help more states in need in 2013.



Your donation will help ensure that the MDBA will be able to continue to be a proactive and upcoming organization providing services, which includes educational speakers, publications and information to our membership and to the public. The past 2 banquets have been the best grossing banquets in MDBA history! This is all because of generous donations by you.



Please consider joining the MDBA, with many voices we are all strong! By joining, you will receive our newsletter 4 times per year and our advertising rates are extremely reasonable.



Check us out on www.mndba.com for all the banquet information and how to join the MDBA.



Please contact me at 4evergreen@woodstocktel.net if you would like to make a donation to the MDBA.

The auction catalog has begun! Get your donations into the MN Deer Breeders Association. Donations must be in by this weekend to make the auction catalog!



Thank you to everyone that has donated already! We have some great vacations/hunts to be auctioned off this year.



Another update to our website www.mndba.com should be posted soon! Look for an update after this weekend. Just a little more than 2 weeks to go.



Remember....no donation is ever considered too small



Don't forget to contact me for the great raffles that we have! Why not take a chance on saving yourself a huge purchase on the best dart rifle made...buy some raffle tickets instead and support the MDBA. Tickets are one for $25 or five for $100. Last year's winner bought $200 in tickets and went home a very happy person!

The banquet is just over 1 week away and the auction catalog is almost complete and ready to print! Does this mean that we will not take anymore donations? Of course not! Get those donations in!



If you haven't registered, get your banquet registrations in. Remember…if you don't pre-register, cost on Saturday March 23rd is $50 per person ($5 more per person). We need accurate head counts for meals. For $45, you get 2 delicious meals on Saturday and refreshments (coffee, pop and water) are offered all day. The meals offered this year are an Italian buffet for lunch and a choice of either ribeye or walleye for supper….see your last newsletter for details. All forms for the banquet to register, for room reservation and donations are on the website. Please email me if you are attending the banquet, let me know how many people are attending with you…and names! Sending the registration fee is not required, but letting me know you are attending IS for the $45 pre-registration price.



Check out the MDBA's website www.mndba.com for an updated list of donations! The website was updated early this week from weekend donations and I will be sending in another soon! We have some great donations this year and be sure to check out the vacation/hunting donations…WOW! Look for another update after the weekend.



Did you all see the guns being offered for raffle this year at the banquet! Don't miss out on some great guns by not attending!

This weekend is the big weekend! I hope everyone is ready to have a great time and ready to win/buy a lot of really nice auction items and prizes! We have a lot of great items that have been donated in the last few days and the auction will be a great one again! And….it looks like the weather is going to cooperate with us!



Check out www.mndba.com for the additional donations received over the weekend!



I am ending the pre-registration price of $45 on Tuesday night. The Arrowwood needs the head count Wednesday morning! So let me know if you are coming by email, how many will be with you and NAMES of people attending so that name tags can be made up.



We have a lot of vendors signed up this year!



Don't forget about all those guns we are raffling off this year! You have to be at the banquet to be able to win them…and also, you have to be present to get the special auction terms on a lot of the live auction lots. Yellow Starred items will be 1/2 down on Saturday and the balance due on September 1st, 2013 and Blue Starred items will be 1/2 down on Saturday and the balance due on June 1st, 2013. You must be in attendance AND a current paid member of the MDBA the day of the sale to get these special terms!



**Just in....2013 doe fawn out of Ammunition donated by Jim Simonson! He will have details and doe choices at the banquet!



Thank you to all of our Volunteers this year! Everyone will be able to enjoy the whole banquet because of you!



See you this weekend!
