Closing in on another Gift Hunt

We will be departing Tennessee for Maine on/about 5 September to hold our fourth gift hunt for a deserving veteran. This hunt's guest is a now retired Army Combat Engineer who was very badly wounded in 2012 in Afghanistan. His injuries were, simply put, life changing. He'll be traveling to Maine by way of Orlando, Fl and flying in to Bangor, being picked up there and transported to camp by one of our group. His flight has been provided by a wonderful organization I've worked with before, Operation Second Chance

After he arrives at camp near Dover-Foxcroft, Me., we will be giving him some special gifts he knows nothing about. First, we will be providing him with a rifle he can not only use on the bear hunt, but take home with him as well. It's a new M70 Featherweight and it has a new Zeiss Terra 2-7x32 on top. A couple other special additions will be a beautiful hand made leather sling made and donated by a fella in England who also provided a hand made knife for our last guest's hunt. Someone else will be making another hand made knife with custom presentation case and forwarding it to me to bring as well. Thanks to both those very generous fellas!

Picture of the rifle and another couple of the sling. I will be getting the knife around the 15-20th of August. We are all looking forward to a successful hunt and especially wanting to provide a veryenjoyable time to our special guest on his free 5 day hunt!

Hunt was a success

Our hunt turned out great, although our guest hunter did not connect, our camp was 2 bears for 4 hunters. Some pictures of the cabins located in Parkman, Me., our guest with his new rifle and of one of the bears harvested. We had a great time, ate well and enjoyed each other's company. Our guest was flown up to Bangor, Me from Orlando, Fl, by the fine organization Operation Second Chance.

One of our group picked him up at the airport and brought him to our camp, which consisted of two comfortable cabins on about 150 acres. We hunted west of Parkman and our bears were taken in Shawtown township. To give some perspective, the county we hunted in, Piscataquis County is large, about 3.5X larger than the state of Rhode Island. 

Planning is now underway for our 5th gift hunt, already scheduled for February in Georgia for wild boar. 

Well, looks like the site is not allowing me to upload any pics, my apologies.
