Welcome to the Brazos Valley chapter of the Buckmasters American Deer Foundation. Since 1999 our committee has hosted the annual Buckmasters Banquet for the Bryan/College Station area. We have raised and donated over $250,000.00 back to our community through programs like Miracle Farm, 4H, Wildlife Alliance for Youth, Wounded Warriors and other groups, which support our main tenets of Conservation & Compassion.
Our veterans are directly responsible for protecting our freedoms, which give us the ability to congregate as we do each year, as well as enjoy hunting and the outdoors (and pretty much every other freedom we enjoy on a daily basis). Prior to the 2010 banquet we started a new project to take wounded veterans hunting as a small way to show our appreciation for their service and protection.
The future of hunting depends upon passing the traditions on to the next generation. Sometimes the opportunities for our youth to go hunting can be limited, especially for those who deal with issues like physical handicaps or other disabilities. In 2010 we were able to take a local 12 year old with cerebral palsy on the hunt of his life – literally.
The Brazos Valley Chapter of the Buckmasters American Deer Foundation is a small group of individuals brought together by their love of the outdoors with the desire to conserve our natural resources, and be compassionate to those in need within our local community.
Our major goals are to pass the traditions of hunting on to the next generation and to thank our veterans who protect the freedoms we take for granted. We provide college scholarships to our local high schools, and strive to have the most family friendly banquet with plenty of activities for the kids. At this year's banquet, make sure you check out our Passing It On To The Next Generation trophy wall with stories and pictures of our local yoth on their own hunting adventures.
