In Spring of 2018, I had the privilege of joining Send-A-Vet foundation on an Idaho Spring bear hunt. I learned of this hunt through a mutual friend who has experienced many great outings with Send-A-Vet. My Experience with Send-A-Vet was nothing more than top notch. Mark and the other volunteers worked tirelessly to help me and my fellow injured vets experience a fantastic hunt. Form the Quality of the baits, transportation and food and longed, nothing was left wanting. For me, being around such like-minded individuals was the maid the hunt even better. I love to hunt predators, especially bear. These guys loved chasing bear as much as I did, and did everything they could to ensure that my nagging limitations form old injuries were a non-issue on this hunt. Since my discharge from the army, few things have helped my own recovery and peace of mind like spending time in the woods. Spending that time with like-minded door kickers only futures the enjoyment.
After my great time with the Spring bear hunt of 2018, I was lucky enough to be invited out with Send-A-Vet for an Idaho Wolf trapping class. I had always been curious about pursuing wolves. The class offered by the Department of Idaho Fish and wildlife was fantastic. Not only did they take the time to explain how and why to use different sets, but they taught us how to make our own traps, as well as some of the best ways to outwit the top predatory the state. The class meant a lot to me, not just the knowledge gained, but the entire experience of learning a new method to enjoy the outdoors with many of the same, likeminded souls I was able to share my bear hunt with earlier in the year.
