The Rutting Ridge Foundation has selected it’s next recipient for receiving an Action Track Chair. This will be Rutting Ridge Foundation’s 5th chair to give away and 5th deer hunt to Rutting Ridge Outfitter’s in Buffalo County Wisconsin. The board has selected Sid Dailey from Independence Wisconsin, as their first round pick for 2020.

Sid, a 15 year-old high school junior from Independence, Wisconsin has faced adversity head-on his whole life. Born with several health ailments (the most prominent being spina bifida.) Sid has learned how to “roll with the punches” and adapt best as he can to situations presented to him. His “dream big” mentality has given him the mindset that just about anything is possible if you have enough determination, drive and support.

Sid’s big heart to others touched the lives of many people in the area. Jason Hovell, Agricultural Science Instructor and FFA Advisor at Independence High School said, “You would be hard-pressed to find another student in Wisconsin of this age that has been so giving of their time to help others through local and state level 4-H and FFA activities, along with his family signing up to serve those who are worse off than they are. I commend Sid’s parents for showing their children this “living to serve” mentality, as this is what I feel is an important link missed in parenting children today.”

Sid currently uses several different styles of crutches, walkers, mobility scooters, and wheelchairs, and was quick to notice that these mobility devices all have their limitations and boundaries, especially where the blacktop ends and surfaces like grass, soil, sand and even gravel have limited Sid’s mobility to enjoy the outdoors with family and peers. This is why Rutting Ridge Foundation is excited to announce and become part of Sid Daily’s life experiences.

Rutting Ridge Outfitter’s in Buffalo County Wisconsin is donating a 3 day hunt. Choices of hunts include- Archery, Rifle, or Muzzleloader with lodging and meals included. All donations received will be donated to Sid Dailey and his action track chair fund. For every $10 donated, you will have a chance to win this hunt. (e.g. $100 gets you 10 chances) The drawing will be done live on Facebook once we hit our goal of $18,000 or March 21st on Sids birthday.

Stories don’t get much better than this! Jarrad Fluekiger shared this story with us about this awesome youth hunt in Wisconsin.

“Well the weekend has finally come to an end for WI youth hunt here in Buffalo County with Rutting Ridge Outfitters. All of us here in camp were filled with anticipation to get it started. We had two bucks dialed in for our handicap youth through our Rutting Ridge Foundation on the same spot. We had a stump that was laced with C’mere Deers RED ALERT and a wireless Spartan camera to set up to see what we had coming in with out constant checking. Well as most of you that follow us know we had 5 o clock Charlie and his 5 o clock shadow in daily.

Day 1
We set up Jake a 11 year old that suffers with ATAXIA TELANGIECTASIA which is degenerative neurological disease. These kids still go to regular school and are in top of there class.

One my guides Mike Bahr set up with Jake filming his first night hunt. Our other camera guy, Nate Winters set up with Max at another location. Since Boys said they don’t want shoot does, I waited at home with anticipation of which bucks would show.

One hour into the hunt I get an email of 5 o clock shadow standing in front of blind I have wireless camera on...U have no idea what your body goes through when wondering what is going on....

Max first night was just does and 2nd night was a miss on a nice buck.

So plenty of action, shots fired, memories never forgotten and new friends for life. Everyone that has part of our Rutting Ridge Foundation are part this experience, whether you were ice fishing our fundraiser tournament , bought raffle tickets, gave donations, gave hunts, or etc. Us guides and members of Rutting Ridge Outfitters were just the humbled ones to capture and share it. Videos of the hunts will be coming to a TV near you soon....Max and Jake say THANK YOU!!! ”

Even though winter seems like a long way off, we are already beginning preparation for the Rutting Ridge Foundation's Annual Banquet. We have been approached many times after each year's banquet by people who would like to donate prizes, hunts, fishing trips, etc. to future banquets. If you would like to donate for our 2018 banquet please feel free to contact us.
Any Outfitters or Fishing Charter services welcomed to donate to the Rutting Ridge Foundation Inc. We are not looking for a weeklong hunt but just a couple days of hunting or day of fishing. We want people to afford to be able to hunt or fish with ya and hopefully build a long-term client with you. We have had Outfitters from OHIO, SOUTH DAKOTA, BUFFALO COUNTY, WI and Illinois in the past. We have had FISHING GUIDES from SOUTH DAKOTA, MINNESOTA, WISCONSIN and OHIO all part of our fundraising.

ALMA, WI- The Rutting Ridge Foundation out of ALMA, WI is proud to announce the recipients of this years ACTION TRACK CHAIR. This year the recipients are Max (12) and Jake (10) Lesperance. Max and Jake are children of Mark and Laura Lesperance of Neenah, WI. Besides receiving the chairs, Rutting Ridge Outfitters in Buffalo County, WI will donate a free deer hunt for father and sons.

Max and Jake suffer from a disease called A-T. A-T is a progressive, degenerative genetic disease that combines the symptoms of muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, and immune deficiencies. Children with A-T appear healthy at birth but progressively begin to lose muscle control. Most children are in wheelchairs by the time they're 10 and usually die in their teens or early 20s.
Experts estimate the frequency of A-T as 1 in 40,000 births, and there are only about 500 identified cases. There is no cure and no treatment to prolong a patient's life.
Max and Jake love the outdoors so much the excitement and emotions were felt by all on April 22 when they received their new Action Track Chairs. Mark, the boys father, loves getting them in the outdoors whether it’s cross-country skiing, hiking, canoeing, or hunting.
Mark said, “ I mean it when I say I wouldn’t change one thing about my sons. Not being able to “Getting out there” is an excuse and there are solutions for almost anything. However, this action track chair will be the solution of all solutions. They boys inspire me every day… Thank you and to all who helped provide, this incredibly generous and life changing gift.”

Max and Jake setting up stands for deer season prior to Action Track Chairs. Mark said, “ I am going to get soft not having to pull or carry my hunting buddies now. “ (above)
The Rutting Ridge Foundation along with Rutting Ridge Outfitters do multiple fundraisers each year to raise money for children that can utilize these Action Track Chairs. Each 3rd weekend in January, he Rutting Ridge Foundation puts on a charity banquet at the ALMA ROD AND GUN CLUB followed by a KIDS ICE FISH CAMP and ICE FISHING TOURNAMNET. People have come all across the country to fish the tournament and help support Rutting Ridge Foundation.

Their solution for everything before the Action Track Chair was an improvised ice sled with wheels transport (above).

Currently, the Rutting Ridge Foundation has a 52 GUN raffle going on. One gun will be given away each week for a year with multiple chances to win. Winning numbers will be the Daily PICK 3 of the Wisconsin State Lottery starting Friday June 2, 2017 and continuing every Friday after that for a year. There are about 100 tickets of the 1000 remaining. If you would like to help support this cause by purchasing a raffle ticket, the following people or businesses would love to get you a ticket; Hillcrest Motel and Lodging, Alma Hotel Bar and Grill, Tate’s Dam View, Red Ram Bar and Grill. You can also contact Jarrad Fluekiger, President, 715-495-0534; Mike Bahr, Vice President, 920-988-4015; Jason Lorenson, Secretary/Treasurer, 651-380-3321; Laura Harrington, 507-696-2365 or Lisa Packer in Lake City, MN, 507-421-6389.

Rutting Ridge Foundation Inc. is a 501 c3 non-profit organization that was created to help physically challenged youth and veterans enjoy a hunting/fishing trip of a lifetime that they would not normally be able to experience. From hunting giant whitetails and turkeys in Buffalo County, Wisconsin, to fishing for 10-pound walleyes in the Mississippi River, it’s an outdoor adventure they will never forget!
Their memorable experience doesn’t stop there. We also provide our wheelchair bound outdoorsmen & women the means to be able to continue enjoying the outdoors long after their trip with us are over. Through the generous donations received from our friends, supporters, and sponsors we are able to provide them with their very own Action Chair. These tank type wheelchairs allow them to go off road and trail into areas that standard wheelchairs can only hope to go. Mud and hills are nothing more than fun obstacles. Their new chairs allow them to experience the outdoors on their terms and access all the areas they desire.
