Wisconsin Waterfowl Events Calendar

2018 Wisconsin Waterfowl Hunters’ Conference

Please reserve March 10 2018 on your calendar for the 2018 Wisconsin Waterfowl Hunters’ Conference. The 2018 Conference will be held this year again at the Hotel Mead and Conference Center in Wisconsin Rapids. This year, the Conference will be a one day event, but the Steering Committee has made special arrangements with the hotel for those wishing to arrive Friday evening.

Although the agenda has not been set yet, we hope to have a preliminary draft agenda up on this website by late January 2018. The Steering Committee is planning on starting Registration at 8:30 am on Saturday and the Conference will begin at 9:15 am on Saturday morning, March 10. The formal presentations will run until about 3:30 pm on Saturday.  A noon lunch is included in your registration fee.

The preregistration fee is $35.00 and registration at the door will be $40.00. The preregistration fee for youth 18 and younger and college students will be $15.00 ($20.00 at the door). It still is a great bargain! What other event/conference have you attended recently that offers you one day of informative and excellent waterfowl/wetland related presentations and a noon lunch. We bet not too many!

The Steering Committee has secured a special sleeping room rate at the Hotel Mead of $84.00 plus tax per room for Conference attendees (must make your room reservation prior to February 20). The Mead is pet friendly and pet friendly rooms are available for a small additional fee. More on that as the Conference dates draws near.
