Wheelin’ Sportsmen provide 50 Virginia disabled men and women chance to hunt thousands of acres.
It was a hunt many Virginia disabled men and women will soon not forget.
Nearly 200 hunters dressed in blaze orange and camo from four different Virginia-area hunting clubs rallied together to give these hunters a chance to hunt.
For some, it was the first chance to hunt since their injury.
Waverly Hunt Club, Sussex Newville Hunt Club, Colonial Hunt Club and Bendall Hunt Club united together to provide this great hunt.
Many of these hunters are war veterans, wounded in combat.
“I served in Desert Storm, Desert Shield and the Gulf War,” Jim Lynch said.
Accordingly, the good deeds kept coming.
Many of the deer harvested were donated to Hunters for the Hungry. The deer will feed many families this Christmas season.
“It’s a great opportunity for everybody. It’s a good opportunity for us to understand their world and how lucky we are to come out all the time and be able to do this,” Kathy Moore of Waverly Hunting Club said.
