I just wanted to take a minute and tell ya’ll about a group that is doing great things for youngsters that are or have suffered the effects of life threatening illnesses. "Hunt of a Lifetime" is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to grant hunting & fishing adventures and dreams for youngsters, age 21 and under, who have been diagnosed with life threatening illnesses. We are doing what we can to make a difference in their life by helping to their dreams come true. The web page is http://www.huntofalifetime.org. Depending upon which type of trip and the destination they chose for their trip they may receive items from companies such as Savage Arms, Simmons Optical, BSA Optical, Buck Knives, KBar Knives, Rocky Boots, Mossy Oak, etc. to take home after their adventure. If you know of any youngsters who are interested in going on a hunting or fishing trip please have them or their parents contact us. After it is confirmed that they are suffering or have suffered from such an illness we will do what we can to make their dreams come true. Our contact information is listed below.
So far the Texas division of Hunt of a Lifetime has these hunts planned for this hunting season;

If you know of any other youngsters that are suffering from or have suffered from a life threatening illness please contact us so that we can help make their dreams come true too!
Also if you know of a handicapped person, young or old, that wants to go hunting or fishing please let me know and I will put them in touch with a group that can help them. Thanks.
