Hunters and others interested in protecting hunting and wildlife conservation can help raise funds by taking part in the 2018 Lubbock Sportsman's Club Hunter's Banquet and Auction.

From buying needed items for Texas Game Wardens to supporting local-area youth hunting and shooting programs to funding Texas bighorn sheep conservation, members of the Lubbock Sportsman's Club, through their annual Hunters' Banquet and Auction raise significant funds to protect hunting and promote wildlife conservation here in West Texas as well as around the world.

The Banquet and Auction will be held at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center Saturday, March 3rd. Doors open at 5 p.m.

$89,000 was donated locally, regionally and around the world by the Lubbock Sportsman's Club from funds raised at its annual Hunters' Banquet and Auction last year.

Tickets must be purchased in advance at lubbocksportsman.com or by calling 806-789-2441. The event has sold-out each year.
