Brownells Sponsors “Takin Bacon 2012” Hog Hunt Benefitting Wounded Veterans


Brownells – The World’s Largest Supplier of Firearms Accessories, Ammunition And Gunsmithing Tools – is proud to announce its recent sponsorship of the 2nd Annual Wounded Warrior Hog Hunt, held at Lay’s Lake Hunt Club, March 9-12, 2012.

The event, organized by Joel Pellicci and U.S. Special Operations personnel, welcomed 12 combat-wounded veterans to the 1,600-acre, hog-primed property, located near Myrtle Beach, SC. The servicemen, who ranged from expert hunters to first-timers, enjoyed the camaraderie while harvesting 18 hogs, the largest of which weighed in at 369 lbs.

Brownells proudly provided the deserving group with hunting supplies and Brownells Video/Photography Supervisor, Matthew Peake, to document the excitement.

“The men and women serving in our Armed Forces deserve our support and thanks wherever we can give it,” said Pete Brownell, CEO of Brownells. “This is just a very, very small way for us to give back to those who protect us and have been injured doing so.”

The veterans in attendance represented the U.S. Army Rangers, Army Special Forces, Marine MARSOC, and Navy SEALs units.
