History

The Red River Area Sportsmen’s Club was organized in March of 1985 by members of the Wahpeton and Breckenridge community to contribute to the conservation of hunting and fishing in the area.

RRASC is an affiliated member of the North Dakota Wildlife Federation, which focuses on legislative issues that affect North Dakota and the local region. Through the NDWF, the RRASC is also affiliated with the National Wildlife Federation focusing on national issues.

We are also a member of the South East Area Sportsmen’s Club of North Dakota, addressing hunting and fishing issues that are of concern for the whole southeast portion of the state. We work closely with the Minnesota D.N.R. regarding hunting, fishing and river access issue for the region and also have a project partnership with the Tewaukon Wildlife Refuge.

We work closely with the North Dakota Game and Fish Department and the Hunt of a Lifetime Coalition to sponsor a Hunt of a Lifetime hunting of fishing trip for a terminally ill young person. The North Dakota Game and Fish has both whitetail deer and pronghorn antelope permits available for the Hunt of a Lifetime Program.
