About Us

Racks and Tusks is a non-profit organization that raises money for scholarships through an annual hunting contest. Our goal is to instill the character traits of outdoorsmanship and hard work in our youth.

Racks and Tusks was founded in 2010 as a way to bring hunters together, in competition, to raise money for scholarships. Local businesses help sponsor events and prizes so that 100% of the entry fees go toward the scholarship fund.

Along with our local land and business owners, our missions is to encourage and support the next generation of hunters to appreciate and care for the outdoors while giving them opportunities to continue their education.

We have helped an average of 18 college students yearly, for seven years now, by giving out scholarships worth $500-1,000 each. We also distribute $500 scholarships to the Firefighter’s Academy and Police Academy.

We believe in investing in our community and the next generation of leaders. Our commitment to hard work and education is demonstrated by this growing scholarship fund.
