    I'm a Wounded Warrior 100% +++located in the Texas Hill Country

    Never been offered a hunt through the program, have been offered hunts by local individuals....

    I was in the hospital/medical recovery program for almost four years, Wounded Warrior Project was great then, but has done little after I separated....many phone calls & e-mails but no offers to hunt, a few for husband/wife counseling...

    However I will admit I'm difficult, require someone to travel & hunt with me, plus I have to use an ATV type wheelchair (which I have) or stay in the vehicle....

    I suggest that any disabled looking for hunts, just search and apply at as many places as possible....

    One sad thing--there are many pay to hunt organizations that are not equipped to handle wheelchair hunters, and some that charge extra....

    I have not givin up, but as I said, WWP has not offered anything to me, so I go after anything I can....

    Best of luck!

    Welcome Fubar 6 to our little group, lots of vets.
    hope ya decide to hang around.

    I'm not miffed WWF is for recent vets only.

    The VA is gonna be, if not allready, overwhelmed, God Bless em (WWF) for helping these young men & women.

    Not saying that I'm upset with them, just saying the ads may be a little misleading....ESP if someone thinks WWP gives all wounded warriors a chance to hunt.

    There seems to be more individuals offering hunts than the Wounded Warrior Program.

    I admit I don't have empirical data ;-)

    I'll bet WWP is a little overwhelmed due to volume right now.
    When the wounded stop coming back, if ever :( , and they catch up.

    Then they'll go into the recreational part of helping...... dontcha think ?:D

    Papadude,
    If your generous offer comes to fruition, you could set up an account of some type so some of us could donate to help you defray expenses. Nice place and nice gesture!:)

    I had some contact with Blind Bud earlier in the year regarding a hunt this year but have not heard back from a couple of e-mails I sent him, so if you are on here Bud give me a call regarding a hunt. I would still like to help with a couple of hunts this year. The only thing a person needs to do is get their Iowa deer tag and we'll feed you and your spouse.You can stay in our bunk house, Nothing fancy but you can't beat the price.

    Sorry to say Blind Bud will not be able to make a hunt this year. So I have both Iowa Shotgun seasons open if there is any disabled vets who would like to try an Iowa deer hunt. Like I said earlier all you need to do is draw an Iowa permit and I'll furnish the housing and even feed you. I have a ranger 6 wheeler to get you to the blind and also a couple 4 wheelers. If there is any interest PM me and we can work out the details.

    I am a disabled ed vet myself. Only 80% because of the stupid VA math. I feel any veteran no matter what campaign or time frame should get the same benefits. Makes me upset to still see to the day the Vietnam vets not getting what they deserve. I am a OIF vet from 2003.
