We started informally as a group of women shooting sporting clays over 10 years ago. Sandy Austin, our defacto leader, started the team because she was tired of shooting with the guys. We gathered as a group of friends among our connections with the Becoming an Outdoors Woman program, Pheasants Forever and Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.

Seven years ago, Kristi Backer-Palmer, saddened by the loss of public hunting land in her home state of North Dakota, was inspired to do something about it. She enrolled the rest of the gang as avid outdoors women, hunters and shooters, to create a sporting clays fundraiser called Clays for a Cause.

 

Over the last seven years, we have raised over $52,000 for the purchase and or restoration of 1,518 acres of habitat in Minnesota. We actively promote the event to women, youth and shooters of all experience levels.  Now in its eighth year, we are excited to see what 2021 Clays for a Cause will bring!
