I have personally witnessed the incredible work of this organization and it's impact on our Nation's Veterans. The respect towards our Veterans and the work they do getting Veterans back in the outdoors hunting, fishing, or shooting is inspirational and makes me want to do more for them. I am so proud to know that my donation goes directly to the programs they provide. I am humbled to have been at the side of wounded Warriors during some hunts and to witness not only how it impacts the lives of those that sacrifice so much for us but how it has impacted me personally to be among such an incredible group of individuals. The volunteer staff of Black Dagger Military Hunt Club have dedicated their lives to serving those who have so willingly served us through their military service. It is inspiring, humbling, and makes me proud to know them. I urge anyone reading this to donate to them if they are looking for a very worthy organization. The smiles on the faces of these HEROES as they catch that fish, hit a bulls eye with a firearm, or harvest a hog or deer does my heart and mind good. Thank you Black Dagger for all you do. I mean this from the bottom of my heart!!! Respectfully, Keith Reimers

They have done it again, BDMHC put together the 7th Annual Top Shot competition on 17 November 2018. The Club and supporters had at least 20 Veterans and family members out to the HCSO ranger and matched us with professional shooters from around the country for a day of fun competition. The courses was challenging but not out of reach. Pro shooters gave pointers to the competitors so they could polisher their skills. I have not seen so many smiling Vets since last years Top Shot, everyone's moral was through the roof. This organization is manned by all volunteers that are nothing short of miracles for us, they put in so much time and effort it is unimaginable. Dave Winters is an amazing man, he is at every event and have never seen him have a bad day, he naturally spreads the smiles to all around him. This Top Notch organization pulled off another Top Shot, I am already looking forward to next years competition.

Just went on the Red Snapper fishing trip to Panama City Beach, FL. Again an excellent event set up by BDMHC and their sponsors. Not only did this trip get me out of my house it reaffirmed my feeling as part of this big blue marble. Everything was Top Notch, the hotel accommodations were great, the hotel staff were all professionals. They not only greeted us with excitement but truly appreciated what the Veterans have done, this fact alone helps us enter the community. All of the Captains and Crews were out of this world, not only did they put all of their time and effort into the event, these guys and gals knew where the greatest opportunity for us to catch fish. Again BDMHC pulled off a flawless event. I don't know about the other Veterans on the trip but I could not have imagined a better trip, not to mention I know I have meet more brothers and sisters and lifelong friends. I am so bad at taking photos for others to enjoy but I have stored so many on my own internal storage device (brain) that will never fade. Thanks again to EVERYONE involved

I was lucky enough to be included in a red snapper fishing event that Black Dagger put together. For being a small organization they went above and beyond to make sure none of the veterans needed anything. Everyone associated with Black Dagger was not only professional but also all around good people.

The boat captains were incredible, they got every one on fish and made sure we all had the best time possible. Everyone of us left the event with nothing but good things to say and a few of us were able to develop a friendship that has lasted beyond the event.

I am grateful for the chance to have been part of this event and have gotten the chance to meet some great Americans.

I’m looking forward to next year!

Black Dagger is a wonderful organization. I had the pleasure of hosting their recent fishing tournament at the Resort where I work, and it was really touching to see how much this organization cared for the Veterans they represented. Black Dagger is genuinely volunteer and non profit driven. They organize meaningful events for Veterans and share their cause in a graceful manner. The leader of the organization as well as the coordinator of the fishing tournament personally invited me to be apart of their gathering at a local home. I loved the warm welcomes and watching the group interact on a family type level. Black Dagger is the best non profit I have ever had the pleasure of teaming with and I look forward to hosting them again soon and also volunteering for their great cause!

I am a volunteer for the Black Dagger Military Hunt Club and it is an absolute pleasure taking care of our Veterans. To be part of an organization that is comprised of all volunteers means donations get to benefit Black Daggers cause and that is helping our Veterans.

Being a Black Dagger volunteer is so rewarding in so many ways. Meeting these women and men who have defended our Country and seeing them have such a good time at the events is awesome. To see donations go directly to benefit these Veterans is something you don't normally get to see. I hope to keep volunteering for quite some time.

My family and I had the privilege to volunteer this past weekend (6/16/2018) at the Black Dagger MHC Red Snapper Tournament. What a wonderful experience! We can not say enough good things about this organization and the lives it is touching. We never felt as though we were there to do a “job” we were there to make a difference and serve those who served us. It was a wonderful gift not only for the vets but also a gift to us. Absolutely loved sharing this with my children.

This weekend I had the privilege of attending the 1st Annual BDMHC Red Snapper Fishing Tournament & had an absolute blast! I could go on & on about the whole thing but in short, it was just absolutely amazing & we had a fantastic time catching lots of red snapper & a lot of other species. Thanks so much to BDMHC, Dave Winters, the sponsors, captains, volunteers & everyone else who made this trip possible.

It is with great honor that I write this review. From the moment I pulled up at the shooting event at Black Dagger Military Hunt Club, I felt as though I had known the people for years. I was welcomed with open arms by each of the staff volunteers, many of whom dedicated an entire weekend day to assist with the start and finish of the event. I cannot underscore enough the safe range practices that I observed by each one of the volunteers at the event. Every bullet fired down range was done so in a responsible, efficient manner due to the staff's constant awareness of range safety procedures. It was like Christmas morning for me at the event. As a former infantryman, I felt as though every magazine handed to me was a gift. I must have fired close to 2,000 various rounds that day (from .223 to .50 BMG). The staff made sure your weapon always had a fresh magazine and that you had a smile on your face. I cannot thank the folks at Black Dagger Military Hunt Club enough for what you did for me that day. May God bless each one of you, and I hope this review serves as a window to the public into how you are changing lives. There is definitely something to say about "recoil therapy" as a good way to clear your mind, and you folks go far beyond that in what you do for veterans. In closing, I would like to thank Mission BBQ for the catered meal to the event; it was seriously the best BBQ I have ever eaten (and thank you Mr. Winters for the "to go" bag!). Thank you again!

Respectfully,

Working with the Black Dagger Military Hunt Club has been outstanding. They pull out all the stops to provide wounded warriors and gold star families an enriching experience that goes well beyond simply hunting. The comraderie that is built at their events cannot be quantified. The opportunities this charity provides to help heal the wounds of war and the effort the staff puts forth makes it an organization worthy of everyone's support.

I am a Gold Star Father having lost my son in the war in Afghanistan. Since my son's demise I have battled depression and the feeling of loss on a regular basis.
However, there have been many days where the loss is minimised by caring and empathetic people who generously reach out....and through their actions have shown me that my son's sacrifice is NOT forgotten.
One such organization that has helped me and other Gold Star Fathers is the Black Dagger MILITARY Hunt Club.
This organization has reached out to us on More than one occasion. They have taken us shooting and provided lunches....and some great fellowship!
I heartily endorse The Black Dagger MILITARY Hunt Club.

I have been a volunteer a handful of times for this organization. I've witnessed first hand the ability of this charity to literally pull somewhat introverted veterans out of their shell. It's a true joy to see a smile come across a face you know hasn't smiled in far to long. I can only hope those patients from the VA gain as much therapy from the experiences as I do. It's truly an honor to be able to, in some small way, be able to help these young men and women find their way back.

It's an honor and a privilege to be a part of Black Dagger Military Hunt Club Inc. as a volunteer. This wonderful organization is not JUST helping our military ‎warriors‬ heal outdoors.
It is an AMAZING group of people, who are a great example of SELFLESSNESS!!!
One small act can make a difference in the life of a Veteran, and the work that they do goes above and beyond that!
Thank you, Black Dagger, for the opportunity to give back! Thank you, Veterans, for your service, and for the sacrifices you have made!!!

I'm combat injured; blind, right leg amputee, 65% burned with limited use of my hands. After my injury, I never thought I would get back into the woods. Black Dagger Military Hunt Club showed me that, even with my disabilities, I could still pursue this passion.

I've been blessed with the opportunity to participate in five different outings and have thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated all of them. I look forward to future adventures with the club.

With Sincere Thanks,
