Northeast Wisconsin Chapter

SCI Northeast Wisconsin Chapter
By: Marty Witczak, President

    Charmaine Wargolet, the Milwaukee Chapter President, called to order our annual meeting for SCI First For Hunters Region 16, held Saturday January 14, 2023 at Wedall Manufacturig in Waukesha, WI. Chapters sent representatives from Iowa, the Chicago are, Madison area, Northeast WI and as far as Canada. Dan Trawicki, our Wisconsin SCI Lobbyist was also in attendance for the annual meeting. He is a staunch advocate for fighting for our hunting rights. Not in attendance was Mark LaBarbera, the SCI Hunter Magazine editor. He asked that the committee of SCI members consider donating for a WWF (Wisconsin Wildlife Federation) mobile shooting range. This enclosed concession trailer consists of lifting sides to expose ballistic curtain sidewalls and piping support stands and can go anywhere. We would be bringing the range to enable teaching youth and adults about the fun of shooting sports. This opportunity to involve youth and adults in shooting experiences with thew traveling trailer was asked to be considered. I imagine I will have updates at a later date regarding this traveling trailer. If you wish to donate contact me via email,


    The 24th Annual Northeast WI Chapter SCI Hunter’s Banquet and live, plus on-line auction, was held the weekend of February 24th through February 26th at the Green Bay Distillery. Our guests enjoyed the “Wisconsin State Hunting and Fishing Expo” at the Resch Expo Center in Green Bay and then were treated to a fabulous meal with the auction following at the Distillery. Our chapter welcomed new members as well as existing members and everyone enjoyed the variety of donated hunts and bidding wars. It was an entertaining evening as well as enjoying meeting the outfitters and perusing the rest of the booths at the hunting and fishing show. There was something for everyone to see, taste or purchase any age, male or female!
