Bishop Robert Carlson--Hunter and Conservationist

Plans are underway for the 18th annual “Bishop’s Charity Hunt”, September 24 and 25 north of Kimball.

The event began in 1996 when then Bishop Robert Carlson first tried his luck at pheasant hunting.

The tradition has continued during Bishop Paul Swain’s time as a way to foster community and raise funds for seminarian education.

Only in South Dakota will you find the Bishop and priests trading in their traditional black for blaze orange to enjoy this great South Dakotan pastime.

All proceeds this year will go to support seminarian education.

The diocese has more than 20 men studying for the priesthood.

The event returns to the Horseshoe “K” Ranch where Dihl and Joanne Grohs and family have opened their hearts and home to the diocese, the Catholic Foundation for Eastern South Dakota and hunters to provide a truly memorable experience.

The “Bishop’s Charity Hunt” has grown into a family tradition for many.

Whether you bring your close friends, your parents or your sons/daughters, it is an opportunity to share fellowship, faith and have fun making lasting memories while raising money to support seminarian education.
