Here are some photos from the Northwest Sportsmans Club sponsored Wounded Warrior hunt. I had the distinct pleasure and honor of hosting Marine Corps Veteran James Zacher this year. We were able to spend three days together, two of those hunting together. The first day we managed to harvest 10 ducks and two Canada geese. The second day was a challenge as the temperature dropped to the low single digits overnight and a variable wind all day kept the geese from committing to our goose spread. We did however, manage to harvest two Canada geese before we had to pull the spread and get back to a warmer atmosphere. James was very appreciative of the help, the support and the opportunity to get into the blind and shoot some birds. This hunt took a lot of effort, being flexible and arranging the perfect time for both of us to be available for a long weekend. All in all, the hunt was a success...
In Novemeber our club in partnership with Avery Prostaff sponsored a young man and his wife to go waterfowl hunting. This gentelman was given two days to hunt with the Avery prostaff hunters. The NWSC paid for his license, stamp, ammunition and food and lodging.
NWSC was proud to Support again this year a Wounded Warrior hunt provided by Kent Contreras and Allen Riggs from Avery Pro Staff. Our Wounded Warrior this year is a US Marine, home town of Boise Idaho. Currently living in Northern Idaho. With the Finanacial Support of NWSC, we were able to provide over night accommodations, food, all licensing and ammo. Our wounded Warrior enjoyed a day of Waterfowl Hunting with our member Roy Jennings.
On the first Sunday in May, 25 of our volunteers lead by Rob Allen, had a very successful Disabled Sportsmans day at Miller Ranch. Twenty-one physically disabled sportsman were given the opportuntiy to hunt for Chuckars, and to shoot rifles from Muzzleloaders to Long Range Tacticle Rifles. After a wonderful BBQ lunch, NWSC had a drawing for a 17 cal. Savage- a lucky young woman was the winner. Several other door prizes were given away to our guests. A very big thank you to all of our volunteers, Rob Allen for his amazing leadership, and of course to Scott Miller from Miller Ranch!
