We're pleased to announce the 5th annual Hunting with Heroes™ Veterans appreciation weekend. Taking place this weekend, October 3-4 in Klickitat, WA, Hunting with Heroes is an all-inclusive weekend featuring VIP-guided fishing and hunting trips, free concerts, amazing BBQ and other great outdoors activities exclusively for Veterans.
Each year with the help of local sponsors and non-profit Home with Heroes™, we send 10 area-Veterans to a private ranch near Klickitat, WA for a weekend of comradery and healing. The event serves to honor area veterans and to provide an outlet to connect with other service members in Washington State.
The event was started 5 years ago as an outlet to connect Veterans who are typically unwilling or unable to talk about their experiences with those who have not had the same experience. The weekend provides a reminder to local Veterans that many of their comrades are dealing with the same issues of stress and depression. By talking with one another and sharing their experiences, many Vets are able to find some sense of peace or understanding.
This year’s event includes a special concert on October 3, by Jackson Michelson at the Canyon Market in Klickitat. Participants will also see special appearances by celebrities Jim Thurber (“Gold Rush”), Gary Lewis (Gary Lewis Outdoors) and Ronald Lee Ermey, AKA “The Gunny.”
