Welcome Home Pheasant Hunt

Starting in 2010, the Hugo Yellow Ribbon Network has welcomed home every Minnesota National Guard Unit from overseas deployment with a uniquely Minnesota welcome, a Guided Pheasant Hunt.  To date, there have been 30 Welcome Home Hunts hosting nearly 3,000 Soldiers and Airmen at Wild Wings of Oneka Hunt Club in Hugo.  

The mission purpose of these events is to share the gift of our great American hunting tradition with a military member returning from overseas deployment who has missed a hunting season while defending our right to enjoy ours.
