Join us on Saturday, October 26th for a day of fun, fellowship, and time in the great outdoors! The day will begin with the sports of hunting and fishing and will end with a celebration of the harvest our wonderful state offers. You are welcome to pursue game and fish in the morning and afternoon. Then, attend the social, barbecue, and raffles in the evening. All are invited to the evening event, even without participating earlier in the day.

All proceeds from this event will support the University of Mary Marauders Armada, which benefits Student Athlete Scholarships. Your support gives students the opportunity to receive a world-class education, while continuing to play Division II sports.

  • Each team member pays a $30 entry fee.
  • Teams compete in four categories:
    • Fins
    • Upland Feathers
    • Waterfowl Feathers
    • Furbearer

Any team that registers a harvest in all four categories is automatically eligible to win the grand champion - the NORTH DAKOTAN.

Teams enjoy a social, barbecue (free will offering), raffles and silent auction at the end of the day. This is open to the public.
