As an injured Iraq veteran, I was offered a bison archery hunt in August of 2016. The hunt was generously donated by the "Heroes Rising Outdoors®" and the tag was donated by an Arizona hunter who had drawn an either sex tag.
I'm writing this letter to personally thank the Arizona Elk Society and Heroes Rising Outdoors® for this outstanding opportunity. I specifically want to thank the Arizona Elk Society for helping vets get this incredible experience. All the individuals involved provided equipment, food and lodging. I think knowing that individuals care so much makes this hunt so memorable for me. They are a great group of people.
I made friends and had an outstanding experience. In fact, since returning from the hunt my wife commented I seemed to be more patient with her and my children.
