SHOT Show 2016: Deer-A-Palooza – Contingency X

Travis Ishida of Contingency X catches up with SSgt Bryan Marshall, USMC (Ret.) “Bam Bam” President of Wishes For Warriors, Corp. and John Hill of Hunt F.E. Hill Ranch to discuss their upcoming deer hunt with Veterans. They have teamed up to allow for our Nation’s Veterans to leave post-war behind for a few days, get out into nature, and enjoy it at its very best. A great cause, and excellent event for all involved. Hear why this event is called ‘Deer-A-Palooza’, and what they have in store!

“Here at Wishes For Warriors, we are a veteran run, volunteer operated 100% non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to returning Hope and Passion back into the lives of our combat wounded heroes, through therapeutic outdoor adventures, after experiencing a life altering injury.

It is our mission to show them that, whether wounded of body and mind, they are still able to live out their passions; whether it is through the love of hunting, fishing, skydiving, or anything that gets their hearts pumping!”

Here at F E Hill Ranch, we have been a family cattle business since the late 1800s. Our primary day-to-day operation is managing a cow-calf ranch to sell calves for consumption. On the recreational side of the ranch, every generation past and present had or has a love for hunting and being in the great outdoors. In the last 30 years we incorporated the hunting program in our ranch by offering hunting opportunities to lease hunters while keeping a block of acreage for family, employees and friends. In 2008, we acquired adjoining acreage to the ranch that was home to some of the best whitetail deer hunting habitat in the Central Texas area. With that, in 2010, Hunt FE Hill Ranch was born.
