Memorial Weekend and Hunting/Fishing opportunities for Veterans

Veterans Hunting and Fishing Veterans Hunting and Fishing

We at Shotem and Caughtem all know the great power mother nature holds.  Whether fishing, hunting or just wandering around the great outdoors, the relative peace and time with friends and family without distraction can provide a sense of rest and relaxation.  Combine this with our celebration of those who have risked their lives for our freedoms and you create a passion for the great outdoors and the healing power she can provide.  We felt this was a perfect weekend to pay tribute to those organizations who already provide these opportunities to our veterans.  There is a vast amount of resources available in every state through the wildlife and parks divisions for those who have served, however, there are also a large amount of groups who provide hunting and fishing opportunities in different states to all those who have or are serving this nation.  Though we have only listed a handful here we hope you let us know about your organization in the comment section below.  To all our service men and woman, past and present, we hope you have a wonderful Shotem and Caughtem Holiday weekend.  

Thank You,

Shotem and Caughtem Staff 

www.woundedwarriorsinaction.com  The Wounded Warriors in Action Foundation Inc. (WWIA) serves our Nation’s combat wounded Purple Heart recipients by providing world-class outdoor sporting activities as a means to recognize and honor their sacrifice, encourage independence and connections with communities, and promote healing and wellness through camaraderie and a shared passion for the outdoors.

www.woundedwarrioroutdoor.com  Wounded Warrior Outdoors provides this all-inclusive adventure at absolutely no cost to the servicemen and women, their families or the government. Transportation, lodging, meals and documentation of the adventure is provided free of charge. It is because of this arrangement that Wounded Warrior Outdoors relies entirely on private donations. Administration, general offices and personnel services are donated.

www.operationsecondchance.org  In 2006, Operation NPLB, formerly known as No Person Left Behind, was founded as an independent charity that allows like-minded professional hunters, fisherman, and outdoor-minded people to ensure that disabled veterans always receive the best outdoor hunting and fishing opportunities. NPLB has always provided wounded warriors with services complimentary to those offered by OSC, and in March of 2011 NPLB became a permanent part of Operation Second Chance.

www.sponsorahunt.com  Sponsor A Hunt began as a novel idea during a deployment is 2011. The goal was to create more resources for soldiers to connect with the hunting community and find hunting opportunities where ever the military moved them. As a military family, we have relocated many times and wished we could find more opportunities at our new duty stations. We feel hunting should be enjoyed by everyone.  We are dedicated to finding and providing opportunities worldwide for outdoor enthusiasts. We appreciate the support we have received from the hunting community and will continue to offer the most information, resources, and opportunities available.
