Details: Another amazing and healing event was held at our annual Hupp Outfitters whitetail hunt. Hero Travis arrived on Sunday, and didn't waste any time - he went right into a blind for an afternoon sit. Our group had deer all over them all week and every sit was exciting!
On Tuesday, Travis suddenly spotted a mature 10 point buck at 20 yards. Travis sent an arrow his way, and the buck mule immediately kicked - so we know it was a hit. Unfortunately the blood trail dried up pretty quickly, and the buck lived to fight another day. The buck was seen again on camera but only at night. Regardless of the outcome, it was a once in a lifetime experience for our Hero Travis . . . great hunting, great food, great camaraderie, and great people.

Details: WHHC sent two Heroes to Montana on the trip of a lifetime at the Montana Dream Ranch. On the second day, our Heroes woke up early and headed to the prairies in pursuit of filling two antelope tags on the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation. As good fortunate would have it, the Heroes spotted a mature antelope early and chased him all morning, covering over three miles primarily on foot before harvesting the trophy.
With one tag remaining, the Heroes found high ground come evening and soon realized they were surrounded by antelope. After spotting a mature buck, our last Hero set his sights to fill the final tag. After putting on a stalk to get into position, the Hero harvested another trophy antelope. The Heroes then headed back to the Dream Ranch to process their meat.
A big thank you to ranch owner Dave Tallman for hosting our Heroes at the Montana Dream Ranch and guides Frankie and Toby Werk for making this a successful hunt for our two deserving Heroes. Another WHHC adventure complete, accomplishing the mission, and creating both memories and friendships that will last a lifetime.
Our Wounded Heroes take home memories and friendships that will last a lifetime!
