The Hunting with Heroes program has announced its fall hunting opportunities for disabled hunters according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife.
Now in its fifth year the Lt. Colonel Ted Epple Veterans with Disabilities Bow Hunt is set for Nov. 8–10, 2013. Past hunts have been quite successful with 10 deer harvested during the 2012 hunt and 5 deer harvested in 2011. Eighteen hunters participated in the 2012 hunt and program and coordinators would like to see 25 participants for the 2013 hunt.
Ten lucky young hunters can also register for a chance hunt on some of the finest whitetail property in Allen County. The Dream Catchers Bow Hunt is open to disabled youth 17 years of age and younger. The hunt will take place Oct. 26–27, 2013.
Each hunter will be paired with an experienced guide. Guides offer whatever assistance may be needed in the field. Community support has been a key factor in the success of the program. Generous donations have made it possible for these hunters to enjoy a free weekend in the outdoors.
To register for either hunt participants are asked to contact Joe Sawmiller at (419) 204-2805 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Registrations must be received by Oct. 10, 2013.
