I am a wounded vet that was contacted by the Navy Safe harbor program about a non profit Group that organized hunt's for wounded vets an their kids. Well as it turned out the non profit group called Tomorrow's Hunters was actually at the time a one man show (Gino). Gino was unbelievable he took care of everything from flying us into Dallas the day before the hunt to picking us up and taking us to the ranch we were hunting. The hunt lasted 4 days and gave my son and me time to reconnect on many levels, We still talk about our time together on that hunt. We hunted with another family from a different branch of the service and we all hit off as if we were life long friends, and to watch our kids interact and build a friendship was great, my son since this has become more outgoing and taken huge strides, he has stepped into leadership classes and ASB this is not the same kid that left home with me to hunt but after the hunt he was a different kid all together I attribute this to the environment Gino creates to get the time to spend one on one time and that's exactly what we needed. Gino is a natural when it comes to youth he really pays attention to them in way that is at their level. it was a truly healing experience for both myself and son, and made a huge difference in both of our lives. It has been a pleasure to spend time and get to know Gino keep up the great work,Thanks Gino.
Gino and his wife took me and my son fly fishing for the first time and we had a trip that we both won't ever forget ! Thank you guys so much !
Had Tomorrow's Hunter out to our ranch to do a couple of youth hunts.
Let me just say it was one of the most fun weekends I had with a group of hunters.
Harvested a blackbuck and a management whitetail buck for the two boys, for both of them it was the first animal they had taken.
It was great to share my love of the outdoors with them and watch their excitement unfold.
Gino does a fantastic job interacting with the boys, and let me say he's not a shy person.
It is a wonderful thing he is doing and I am grateful to be able to help promote the great sport of hunting.
We are looking forward to many more hunts with them in the future and to making many more friends.
Planning a shed hunt with Tomorrow's Hunters soon and looking forward to it
I love hunting, but I lost my legs in Afghanistan. So passing the tradition on to my son takes a lot more effort. Thanks to Gino and tomorrow's Hunter, my son Jay, at 8 years of age took his first big game animal. It was an Antelope in the state of New Mexico. Thank you tomorrow's Hunter for an experience sure to be remembered.
I can't say enough about the experience my 16 year old son, Luke, and I had with Gino and Tomorrows Hunter on a black buck hunt at Wild Point Ranch! It was truly a "healing" life changing event for Luke. Great memories and new friendships along with a great hunt was priceless. Can't wait to give back to this organization!
I was called last minute by Gino because one of his hunt donors backed out. His two vets and their sons needed a place to go hunting. I asked my boss, aka my wife, if she would grant me a hall pass for the weekend. We loaded up the truck and the hunt was on. It was such an honor to be around our nations heroes. To see the smiles on their sons faces was priceless. The interaction between father and son making lifetime memories is a moment I will treasure forever.
We sat around the campfire and roasted marshmallows while talking about their deployment stories. The 8 and 9 year old boys both shot their fist deer. The hugs and smiles were incredible. For a brief moment they forgot about their PTSD and war injuries. We brought families together.
I hope Gino receives the needed donations to continue to take our heroes into the field. A $300 donation to Gino buys the gas and food for a weekend. Gino does not take a salary from his foundation. Every donation goes directly back to the vets and their kids.
