Whitetails Unlimited coming to Lincoln Parish

I remember a week-long stay I had in Door County Wisconsin a few years ago. While there in that spit of land jutting out into Lake Michigan from Green Bay, our group of journalists fished through the ice for white fish and dined on our catch at a traditional fish boil. I had no idea then that we probably drove past the headquarters of one of the fastest growing wildlife conservation groups in the country, Whitetails Unlimited. Headquartered in Sturgeon Bay there in Door County, that organization which was launched in 1982, now sports more than 95,000 supporters around the country with local chapters across the nation, including 16 in Louisiana.
