BMC Receives Hometown Hero Award from State Assembly

Posted By Mark Ellis, Thursday, November 9, 2017

Badger Mining Corporation (BMC) recently completed its 17th year as a company sponsor of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources’ (WDNR) annual deer gun hunt for people with disabilities.   On November 2nd it was recognized as a Hometown Hero by the Wisconsin State Assembly for its continued support of the hunting program. Nominated for the award by Representative Joan Ballweg, the Hometown Hero program “seeks to identify and recognize individuals from around the state who give of themselves to make a difference in our communities and in the lives of those around them.”


BMC accommodated 16 hunters this year, 12 of which were new and 4 that were returning. The hunters ranged in age from 17 to 70 years old, and came from every corner of the state of Wisconsin to participate. For many of the hunters, getting out into the woods and fields to experience a deer hunt, whether it was the first time or returning after many years away, is an opportunity that truly resonates with them. While many of the hunters are grateful for the chance to hunt again, the BMC associates that volunteer their time to help guide these hunters receive much from the experience as well. As one first-time BMC guide said after helping, “Thank you for allowing me to help with the hunters. It has truly been one of the most rewarding things I have ever done!”
