2012 South Carolina Ultimate Adventure Deer Hunt
web posted September 21, 2012
EDGEFIELD – The heavily populated deer
woods surrounding Edgefield and Saluda Counties in South Carolina will
be filled with approximately 40 disabled hunters October 26th and 27th
2012. Many of these hunters will be anxiously waiting to fill their
tags while others are hoping to get a glimpse of their first whitetail.
This group of hunters will be participating in the 2nd Annual 2012
South Carolina “Ultimate Adventure Deer Hunt”.
The Saluda Shrine Club located at 1035 Johnston Hwy in Saluda, will be
serving as the events base of operations. “We’re looking forward to
great time. We’re hoping to host a minimum of 40 deserving kids and
adults with various disabilities this year. These people can’t go and
come like others, they need help”, said Shannon Enlow. “So far we have
had a lot of interest from people wanting to get involved. We have land
owners that want to donate their property for the hunt and we have a
lot volunteers willing to sit with the participants and act as their
guide’s. This just proves the point that there are some great caring
folks around here. We couldn’t do it without their help. While, you
can’t put a cost or a value on this we certainly want and need more
land owners and volunteers to help.
Each disabled participate will be paired with at least one
non-disabled guide. “The formation of hunting team’s is where it starts
and happens. Its teamwork and it’s where the rubber hits the road”,
said Kirk Thomas CEO/Founder. “Guides and volunteers will interact with
the participants on a one on one basis to form a team. They’ll work
together to overcome any challenge the hunting opportunity presents.
They might get wet and muddy but they’ll make it happen. The disabled
participants just want the opportunity to get out there and their
guides just want to help. It doesn’t take long to see and understand
this. We’re blessed to be able to bring this event to South Carolina
Including the SC. Ultimate Adventure OWL is hosting a total of
six (6) “Ultimate Adventure Deer Hunts” in MS., GA., FL. and in AL. The
Alabama “Ultimate Adventure” will be held December 8-11 in Troy, Al.
It’s a monster and the largest hunt held for disabled participants in
the world with approx. 150 disabled participants”. We prepare and feed
(9) nine meals to an average attendance of around 750/800 people per
meal, said Thomas.
There are an abundance of scheduled activities that are open to the
public including the events “Kick off Dinner & Benefit” Friday
night October 26th starting at 5:30. Single tickets $20.00/Couple
It’s going to be a very busy event, full of fun, excitement and
great food. We want people to come get involved with this life changing
and saving experience: said Shannon Enlow.
