Hunting Dakota with Roosevelt


Established in 2008, Hunting Dakota with Roosevelt (HDwR) is an organization designed to meet three very specific goals. HDwR provides financial and holistic support to the Bismarck Cancer Center Foundation, a non-profit 501- C-3 charity, to further the fight against cancer at the local level. HDwR also honors members of the United States Armed Forces who sacrifice themselves daily to protect and preserve the way of life that we all cherish. We especially honor those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for their country. In addition, we strive to follow the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation by conducting a “fair chase” hunt, recognizing and honoring hunter/landowner relationships and paying tribute to the conservation ideas and principles founded by former president Theodore Roosevelt.

For three days in October, men and women come together to revere, honor and attend to these issues in the tradition of Roosevelt.Select military personnel from North Dakota who have been mobilized for at least one tour of duty are invited to be guests of the sponsoring individuals or companies. In small groups, they hunt (fair chase) upland game on private lands as guests of generous land-owner ranchers and farmers of North Dakota with trained dogs and their handlers.
