SOUTH DAKOTA PHEASANT HUNT BOLTON RANCH

We had the pleasure of taking (8) warriors on a 3 day pheasant hunt in Winner South Dakota thanks to a lot of great people. Thanks to Joe & Stacie Bolton for hosting this event, we were able meet Stephanie Hughes of Triple H Hunting, her girls and the Hughes family as they hosted a hunt on the ranch for these soldiers. They seemed very happy we brought these warriors out there and did everything to make this an awesome hunt which is was. They limited out in less than 3 hours at Triple H Hunting thanks to our guides and awesome dog work that day. After the hunt Deanna at Triple H prepared a lunch fit for a king, all types of soups and deserts! Way to much for a bunch like us.

This family truely understands the need for trips like this for our military, and are ready to do it again next year. I was proud to be there at that moment in time with such great people and great soldiers. The nest day thanks to the folks at Grossenberg Impliments and Charlie Grossenberg, we were again treated to a great day of pheasant hunting on private property. We deamed it “combat” hunting where we were to seek and destroy, which they did! We traveled to numerous locations trying to fill all the tags, all the while our host’s kept busting thier butts for our warriors that day. We were treated to an awesome lunch in the field, where we regrouped and came up with another plan of attack. After another sucessful afternoon, we headed to a beautiful lodge for refreshments and a break. That night we all headed to Colome and met at the VFW for a dinner and awards ceremony for the soldiers and sponsors of this event. We tried to show and express our heartfelt gratitude to all our host’s, our friends, and new friends that night for all the hard work, their generosity, and especially their Patriotism. We presented Challenge coins along with some Patriot Hunts plaques, and certificates form the Command at Fort Bragg N.C. on behalf of these soldiers. Unbeleivably Joe Boltoin and Travis Tobin came together and presented me with a custom made T/C Center rifle form the custom shop with gold enlay deer on the reciever, in a 308 caliber, with a hand finished stock made of Birdseye maple wood, and they had 2 Patriot Hunts coins made into the butt stock! Absolutely beautiful and I was totally shocked to say the least by this generous gift. I will never forget that night and all the good will and tears of joy we all shared and experienced. The last day we hunted on the Bolton Ranch which was another great day, we limited out in 3 hours once again!  You know the hunt itself was awesome and very productive, but that truely was not the best part for me or the soldiers. We had a group of American’s that wanted to give something back to those that have given so much on their behalf without asking anything in return. They sacrifice their so much to include sadly their lives and limbs at times and these great people know that and this is why they wanted to give back as they did in a big way. No words can express how grateful we all are for the friendship they gave us that weekend, for their compassion, their hospitality, and their love for this country and what these men stand for. You are truely Patriots, and are all part of the Patriot Hunts family from here on out. Thanks to Joe & Stacie,Country Pride, KRACL Irrigation, Marty, Larry, Dan, Tim, Darren, Charlie,Steph and all her family for everything..


 


Patriot Hunts is dedicated to providing outdoor experiences for our Wounded Warriors, and Gold Star children of fallen heroes. With all of us sportsman and Patriots working together, we truly can make a difference in the life of a soldier who has chosen to lay his life at the altar of freedom on our behalf. These men and women have not only paid a physical and mental price, some have paid the ultimate price, for their fellow man. The cost of freedom is not measured in dollars, and it is paid for by patriots in our armed forces, by their courage, their commitment, and their willingness to stand in harms way for this country.

Stepping up and either volunteering or through your generous donations we can give back to the children of our fallen brothers, and help give them the guidance that their parent they have lost would have loved to be here to do. So it is with great pride and honor that we even have this opportunity and accept this challenge to reach out a helping hand.

The thought of a single Gold Star child being forgotten, and never having the opportunity to witness a sunrise from a duck blind, or hear a turkey gobble after flying down from the roost, or see a flock of geese fly over a deer stand while hunting, is just heartbreaking, so help us to make that dream come true for these deserving kids that have been devastated by lose, by donating.

Helping to empower Gold Star Children of fallen heroes through outdoor therapy. 

By supporting this effort, your giving so many deserving kids an opportunity to experience things through hunting & fishing they may have never been given the chance to.

Take the time to help give back to those soldiers who have sacrificed so much.
