HUNTING WITH SOLDIERS
SWEAT EQUITY HOG HUNT & FISHING TRIP
JUNE 4-6, 2021
UPDATE: Trip is filled. No more applications accepted.
Hunting with Soldiers is hosting 4 Combat Veterans for a sweat equity hog hunt and fishing out of Columbus, TX. The Sweat Equity Hunt & Fishing consists of the Veterans hunting in the mornings and evenings and some at night, and during the day, they help the landowner with things that need done such as clearing brush, cutting trees, filling feeders, etc. We have found that these trips are very successful in that the Veterans are given a task, they work as a team to complete these tasks, and they see the end results. They also get some good meat to take home from their harvest. Arrival is Friday, June 4th and departure is Sunday June 6th. Meals and housing are supplied. Veteran only needs to bring a couple or more ice chests for the meat, weapon, & knives for cleaning their kill, towel & washrag, bedding & fishing gear. Also will need work gloves and hearing protection. If you have a chainsaw, bring it as well. If the Veteran does not have a weapon, they just need to let us know. We have plenty for them to use. You must have and show proof of a valid Texas Hunting License. Veteran must be able to lift and walk with no restrictions to qualify for this trip. You must be a Combat Veteran as well. This trip does not count against you for any other hunting and fishing adventures with Hunting with Soldiers. This is one way we give back to the landowners.
