The MN Disabled American Veterans Organization (DAV) in partnership with Midwest Outdoors Unlimited ( MOU ) is announcing their disabled veterans pheasant hunts planned for 10/12/2013 and 10/13/2013 at Sandpines Pheasant Preserve in Avon, MN ( just a few miles N of St. Cloud ).
The 1st hunt on Oct. 12 is being sponsored by the MN Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Foundation and coordinated by Midwest Outdoors Unlimited (MOU). This hunt will be for disabled veterans who have not participated in this hunt before. We want to focus this day on a new experience for the hunters.
The 2nd hunt is planned for October 13th and will be sponsored by MOU. The event is being set up for disabled veteran hunters who have participated in these hunts in the past (Alumni). Participants will be expected to partially or fully fund the cost of the hunt ( $250.00 each ) with a minimum of $100 ( sent in along w/their application ) and more would certainly be appreciated either from the hunters or sponsors they personally seek out (Elks, VFW, DAV, American Legion , MOPH or other local civic organizations.)
Alumni hunters certainly understand the impact of this hunting experience on quality of life for participants… and we certainly want to provide more experiences for the alumni hunters, however, if they can assist in the cost, we can provide more of these opportunities for them.
