Review for WOUNDED WARRIORS IN ACTION FOUNDATION INC, Apollo Beach, FL, USA
A 4 day all expense paid trip to a hunting camp 20 miles from Phillips, Wisconsin in late October. Camp Hackett provided 400+ private acres and a chance to harvest a trophy whitetail. This is what was made available to me through the WWIA. My buddy Robin and I arrived at camp mid morning on Thursday and were immediately greeted by John, Jake, and Matt. John said unload your kit, hit the qualification stand (have to qualify with your equipment prior to the hunt), and we'll get you out onto a stand. I couldn't believe it, they understood exactly why I had signed up for this event... to HUNT. About that time it began to snow/rain. Most guys I know would have headed for shelter. John and his crew were eager for me to get on the stand though. They assisted me through the preliminaries and an hour later I was on the stand, I told Robin, "This is my kind of people". After a day on the deer stand we came back to camp with hot chow and warm bunks waiting. No pressure here you went out to the stand when you wanted and returned when you wanted, "Just enjoy the woods", John said. No media in our faces or people with a lot of questions, just hunting and comraderie. Stories were told and new ones made. God has provided the setting, John and his staff have chosen to use it to help heal. I thank God for WWIA and WWIA for the opportunity it provided.
