Veterans Council and DNR to host veteran hunt
Thursday, August 1, 2013 7:14 AM
The Huntington County Veterans Council and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources' Roush Fish and Wildlife Area will sponsor a dove hunt for disabled veterans and other interested veterans who like to hunt.
The event is scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 1, from noon to 6 p.m.
Plans are being made to have a designated field for veterans with 10 stations. Each station will serve two veteran hunters.
Disabled veterans who are mobility challenged will be paired with a veteran who can serve as a guide.
Guides will also be able to hunt.
A tailgate lunch and cold drinks will be provided the day of the hunt.
A range day for practice is scheduled at the Roush Lake Firing Range on Sunday, Aug. 25, at noon.
Reservations can be made by calling 358-4863.
First priority will be given to disabled veterans, but all veterans are welcome to help fill the stations.
