Barbara Grinde, of Polson, wanted to have a fundraiser at the Finley Point Grill to benefit Montana Wounded Warriors. She contacted former members of the Steve Miller Band and asked if they would be willing to play a benefit show. They agreed, and with the help of Sean Perry, the manager of the Finley Point Grill, they put on an evening of good music, drink and food with silent auction items. Barbara’s Dad is a veteran and Barbara felt that a fundraiser just before Veteran’s Day was appropriate. Through her efforts, she was able to raise $850.00 for our organization.

Once again, Trophies Plus Outfitters hosted opening day weekend for Montana Wounded Warriors. Five of our wounded vets gathered here for an opportunity to shoot some mule deer.

The first day had many sightings, and Chris Mazur was the first to shoot.
Day 2 brought in two more deer by Brandon and TJ!
That night we had a photo op as R. Lee Ermey, the drill sergeant, from the movie Full Metal Jacket, and Stan Potts, from numerous shows on the Outdoor Channel, joined us for dinner. Pictured below, Montana Wounded Warrior Chris Mazur presents R. Lee with a shirt and hat.
Day 3 also ended with a bang as McCay brought one home.
And a good time was had by all – to God be the glory!!!
