Private Land Hunts
Our program takes disabled veterans with a family member or friend on local hunts. We have acquired access to more than 2,500 acres of private hunting land from landowners who want to give back to our disabled veterans that have given so much for us. Our members have helped create/design unique scissor lifts on trailers, so our veterans can reach heights of 40 feet for viewing the surrounding area for their hunt.
scissor lift Blinds
We have two mobile, scissor lift blinds for placement on property we hunt. We’ve rebuilt the safety deck on the lift and added some desert paint, so it will blend into the surroundings. The second lift came from a local, anonymous donor who wanted to support our cause of giving back to our veterans. This community has been great in giving to our cause and supporting our veterans!
Our first hunt with the new blind was in one of the local vineyards with a Navy veteran and his brother. A heartfelt thank you to those that made this hunt successful.
We look forward to each hunting season and taking veterans out with our blinds. We are able to get the veteran up over 40 feet, so they have an unobstructed 360 degree view. A special thanks to Ranch and Home and the Dress Family, Signs by Sue, Northwest Jet Boats, Sunbelt Rentals, and other generous companies that wish to remain anonymous. We could not have started this great cause without you.
We have a military HUMMV that was purchased by a private individual for Friends of Disabled Veterans to use at no cost for the purpose of advertising our nonprofit. The Humvee is now street legal, so we can place Friends of Disabled Veterans signage and drive in parades and other community events. The Humvee is also great for driving people around the property so they can attend events and participate in activities.
