very proud to be able to show our appreciation for veterans
by co-hosting guided hunts. We have hosted 15 Veterans
so far, and this year we plan to host 6 more. We have been
working with two different great nonprofit agencies that
organize and fund these hunts. They are “Field of
Dreams Inc” and the “Fergosa Foundation”.
The key leaders of these two organizations are Tom Dermody
of Field of Dreams Inc and Max Fergosa of the Fergosa Foundation.
Together, we are perfecting really outstanding vacation
experience for veterans who so justly deserve it. So far,
we have been fortunate enough to have a 100% harvest rate.
We have hunted mule deer, white tail deer and antelope.
have received high reviews from our hunters and our co-hosting
organizations. I can’t speak highly enough about
my Chief Guide John Knipe. (That’s retired “Airman
Sergeant Knipe”.) He provides the on site leadership
for the guides and the hunters. John recruits several top
notch veteran guides to help with the hunts, and also helps
us customize our hunts to have a military flavor, so to
speak. As we continue to host veteran hunts, (our 4rth
year) they just get better and better.
to thank all the PSRO volunteers and guides who have helped
to host these past hunts. I won’t name them for fear
of leaving someone out. But you know who you are and I
appreciate you. I also want to thank the board members
and guides of Field of Dreams and the Fergosa Foundation.
