Once again we had the privilege of bringing five wounded veterans (Rodney Thurman, Rick Heilman, Scott Larkin, Tyler Tummons, and Johnny Biers) to hunt deer and elk in Dillon, MT. This year we had the opportunity to stay at the Expedition Lodge and the accommodations were fantastic!
On the afternoon of Friday, November 3rd, our hunt began for deer and elk on the Shuett Ranch as well as the Tash family ranch. Altogether our veterans harvested 3 bull elk, 2 cow elk, 5 bucks, and 3 does. On Sunday afternoon, 4 of the vets were also given the opportunity to hunt pheasants with Bill Kemph. Rodney, who tagged out on Saturday, spent the day on Sunday with guide Cameron Williams. He hunted ducks in the morning (joined by Ed Wilson, co-owner of Expedition Lodge) and fished on the Beaverhead River in the afternoon. The harvest was bountiful!
We’d like to thank the Shuett family as well as Tightline Adventures and Expedition Lodge, and the Tash family as well as Torry Holland, the manager of the lands just to the north of Tash’s for his help in allowing us to recover a buck shot on Tash’s, but which jumped the fence before dying. The support of this community is greatly appreciated.
