Join the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) for the live auction event of the year. Whether you’re at home working or hitting the links with us at the Sanctuary, this uniquely special live auction is open to all. With items ranging from a Montana fishing adventure with Huey Lewis to a South Dakota Pheasant hunt with famed actor Gerald McRaney and General Walt Boomer, this is sure to be a live auction that you don’t want to miss. In addition to a line-up of once-in-a-lifetime hunting, angling and shooting opportunities, all proceeds raised in the auction will go directly back to supporting CSF’s mission to work with Congress, governors, and state legislatures to protect and advance hunting, angling, recreational shooting and trapping.
