THROUGH THE GREAT OUTDOORS
Our Mission: To combat PTSD and veteran suicide through hunting, fishing and enjoying the therapeutic aspects of the outdoors. We believe the veteran suicide rate is unacceptable and it is time to help our heroes deal with their issues through the great outdoors.
PTSD Defined: Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that's triggered by a terrifying event — either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event and can last for months or even years.

VETERANS HAVE COMMITTED SUICIDE SINCE THE YEAR 2001.

“In the military, we have many sayings including “exceeding the expected” and “making the ordinary extraordinary”. That is what I experienced on the 2021 hosted duck hunt in Maryland. Dakota and the team will have my enduring appreciation for years to come!”
