The West Virginia Trophy Hunters AssociationSM is a non-profit (IRS 501C-4) organization dedicated to the conservation of wildlife and the preservation of hunting and hunters rights. We are all avid hunters and fishermen and professionals in our individual fields of endeavor.
Each year in January we present the West Virginia Hunting and Fishing ShowSM at the Civic Center in Charleston, West Virginia. All proceeds except for costs to run the show and club operating expenses, are donated to programs that promote or protect hunting, fishing, wildlife, conservation, and related educational activities. From 1995 through 2012 our donations to these causes exceeded $322,424. In addition we also make many "in kind" donations to various organizations. Another program that we sponsor is our nearly 500 acre Wildlife Study Project in Wirt County. We have raised over $350,000 for that project. While raising funds is important, the primary reason for hosting this show is to bring hunters and fishermen into contact with organizations that can provide them with goods and services related to these activities. We are all 100% volunteers. The volunteers from the WVTHASM work for no wage or monetary gain. All vendors should reserve their booths as soon as possible, since we normally sell out by October.
West Virginia Wildlife Charity AuctionSM
Our organization makes a request of each show vendor and outfitter, to donate something to our "charity" auction to help fund various wildlife and conservation projects in West Virginia and in several other states. These donations range from ball caps to African Safaris. Many fishing and hunting outfitters donate trips. The funds received from these donations in the past have helped fund the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, the NRA, Boy Scouts, the West Virginia Raptor Rehabilitation Center, DNR research and wildlife food plots, to give a few examples. Early donors for 2010 will have their businesses listed on our website, so you may get months of extra advertisement by sending your donation early or legally committing to donate. As always, we provide those that request it a receipt for the donation. To review the current donations click Donations Ads.
