Details: Patrick Garrett arrived at The Kelley Farm around 4pm Sunday afternoon. After getting Patrick settled into his room, Jack Stanizzo, one of our long-time loyal volunteers, and board member Paul Culley took Patrick outside to pattern his WHHC loaner shotgun. Patrick put a few rounds through the shotgun and he was ready to go. Our guide Cody Ishman and his wife Angelica stopped bye to be introduced to Patrick, our Purple Heart Hero. We sat down to a good pot roast meal. Everyone shared some funny turkey stories. Cody has done his homework and laid out the game plan for Monday morning, and Patrick was ready to go at 4am.
By 6:30am the men were back to the farmhouse with a beautiful Pennsylvania Wild turkey. The bird had a 9 ½” beard and 1 3/16” spurs. Patrick shared a lot of interesting stories about all is tours and combat experiences. In closing we all really enjoy the experience we had getting to know our Hero Patrick Garrett and look forward to the next hunt with a WHHC Hero.
Our Wounded Heroes take home memories and friendships that will last a lifetime!
