In 2011, a few of us guides and duck hunters from Wisconsin decided that we wanted to give something back to our military veterans. Having more than an adequate supply of hunting gear, we all teamed up to host an event dubbed "Operation Red, White and Bluebill", an open water duck hunt from layout boats.

During that first event, we met nine Marines who would change our lives forever. All nine men, some of whom sacrificed body parts, thanked the hosts continually. This was an outlet they had been looking for - the natural comraderie amongst hunters was a welcoming and much appreciated environment.

We were immensly humbled by the gracious comments of our guests, and at the end of the day, many of us had a new or revised perspective on life. These soldiers were the ones we were suppose to be thanking, not the other way around. Our few hours we each put into volunteering could never compare to the months and years they so honorably sacrificed to serve. We knew this event had to go on.

Today, with the help of generous donors and sponsorships, we are planning our fourth annual Operation Red, White and Bluebill hunt for 2015. The event for 2015 will be held on the Mississippi River. Pool 9 Flyway Fowling Guide Service and Grandview Motel will be our hosts this year. Another group of military veterans will be treated to lodging, food, and of course, an unbeatable duck hunting experience. If you know a veteran who would like to participate in this years hunt, or would like to make a donation, please Contact Us.

Thank you for your support.
