    For the past 4 years, our lease has been offered to give some less fortunate kids a place to deer hunt and enjoy the outdoors. My kids and I usually just help out where we are needed. We ended up with 5 kids this year and man did they get it done. There were some truly happy kids when they left the farm last night! They ended up harvesting 8 deer this weekend and had one that we did not recover (yet).
    I would like to thank our Fish and Wildlife Officers for offering their time and commitment to this event each year. It takes a lot of effort to organize this event and it shows. They do a great job with it every year. Each kid has an officer hunting with them. It is awesome to see the smiles on these kids faces and hear their stories! One of the lucky hunters told me last night that they were gonna eat the meat and put the head on the wall! This kid has no use of his legs and insisted he ride in the back of a side by side with his buck on the way back to the barn! Sure put an even bigger smile on my face! By no means am I taking credit for any of the organizing but it is a truly humbling experience for me and my sons to be a part of this each year!
