'Hunts for Warriors' Heals the Soul
Richard Simms, October 17, 2018
When you sit shoulder-to-shoulder with any man for two straight days, you learn a lot about him without even trying too hard. But spend two days with a man who carries life-long injuries incurred in battle and you will learn more than you would ever imagine about yourself and the freedom you enjoy.
Long before sunrise on the first day there is a lot of excitement among the combat-wounded veterans invited to take part in this special deer hunt. (Photo: Richard Simms)Led by the folks with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency and the Tennessee Valley Chapter of Safari Club International, twenty-five lucky guides got to do just that. We spent two days this week, each of us in the company of a combat-wounded veteran, on a special deer hunt at the Enterprise South Nature Park.

Purple Heart Hunts for Warriors From the Outdoor Channel
TN Valley SCI was a founding supporter of the Str8 Shooters Clay Team several years ago and continues to support youth shotgun and archery sports with this presentation. SCI board member Keith Watson caught up with some of the team and coaches to present a check during their first practice of 2018 at Dead Zero Shooting Park.
Chapter President Mike McDowell presents a check to Kirk Miles, Wildlife Program Manager for Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency to be used for projects at Johnson Bottoms Wildlife Management Area. This check will be matched with Federal Pittman Robertson funds for much needed repairs and enhancements on the WMA.
