It was mid Winter 2018 when Cv6 reached out to active/Veterans to go on a Sandhill crane hunt. As I stood, I never thought that I would associate myself with others. I was suffering from PTSD, TBI, Depression, and was drinking my pain away after 9.5 years as a 11B, and dealing with the worse massacre on Ft Hood with Nidal Hasan that I was in. I didnt know my direction. The day I drove 4 hrs I was thinking what is about to happen. When I arrived I met, and felt the love of brothers in arms. It was like a day that I had never left the Military. It was different branches that bonded, but its one thing in common we all served our Nation. It was the most satisfying weekend I have had in many years. Rodney puts his love into Veterans as he is a Vet himself. Since that weekend I have tried to involve myself Into any opportunity I can to volunteer. CV6 is a blessing and a world changer for Active and Veterans.

Haven't had the pleasure of heading out with these guys and gals yet, but I have had several encounters with the team when they are trying to set up a hunt/fish. They have been great to deal with and I can't wait to join them soon!

Applied for Cover 6 well over a year ago. Was promised an Axis hunt. Kept getting the run around. Was told by one of their staff members I could come hunt on his personal land. Got the run around from him as well. Never heard back from them on the Axis hunt that was promised to me well over a year ago now.

Cover 6 Outdoors is very proactive in the Veteran community. From taking Veterans on hunting/fishing trips to pointing me in the right direction to a very helpful VA mortgage lender, Cover 6 Outdoors is a very trustworthy group of battle buddies. They really have our 6!

I had just moved to Texas, and the bank account was drained due to the move. Top that with being home all day everyday, and no outlet, and my stress and depression was to the max. I reached out as a last resort, and Cover 6 answered the call. Within days they got me out into a pig. The weather was awful but I didn't even notice. This got me out long enough to destress, and unwind. Bonus, there was meat in the fridge now which I desperately needed.

It didn't end there either. This amazing group stays in contact with me to ensure my mental well being. They live up to their name of Cover 6 and then some. I cannot wait until I am fully back on my feet so I can give back and ensure the next guy in need has what is needed to bring him back.

I recently guided 2 Veterans on a Cover 6 sponsored fishing trip. As a disabled & retired Veteran I know what it means to need aget away from the day to day stresses.

One of the members of Cover 6 asked me if I would donate a trip for them and I was eager to volunteer. As the date came, I was contacted by one of the Vets to confirm and we had a great day.

If you're on the fence about volunteering/donating, this is a stand up organization. GIVE TO COVER6 OUTDOORS, they will put your donation to good use.
