Veterans Hunt 2017

 In Hunter Advocacy

This Year’s Veterans Hunt was a Big Success

The mission of SCI is to protect hunters’ rights and freedoms.  This hunt is a small way we can thank those veterans who sacrificed to protect the freedoms we enjoy in this country today.  -Mike Hoskins, Lansing Area SCI Chapter President

The annual Veterans Hunt is a very special day for us. We are so honored to Veterans Hunthost many areas vets and have the chance to hunt beside them and hear their amazing stories.

This year’s hunt was held on October 29 at the Crooked Foot Hunt Club in Owosso, Michigan. The day started off with a hearty breakfast and safety instructions. You are never too old to review safety tips!!

Hors d’ vours and lunch were served later in the day.
