2ND annual Farley Vale Farm Disabled Veterans Deer Hunt a success

Buddy Fines provided me with an update on recent events to include the 2nd annual Farley Vale Farm Disabled Veterans Deer Hunt that took place on December 20th.  
Christ Hallberg and the Fredericksburg Chapter of Ducks Unlimited joined with the Taylor family of King George to start this hunt during the 2011 season. This year 22 veterans participated in the hunt and took 7 deer. This is quite commendable since 8 deer were seen and or shot at. Turns out this group of veterans were quite the sharpshooters.

As with most of the disabled veterans hunts, attendees were treated to a great breakfast of sausage biscuits, donuts and coffee. The meal after the hunt was of BBQ, venison chili, burgers, hot dogs and oysters. Many individuals and organizations pitched in to make this hunt a success.

According to Buddy Fines the following were participants and were appreciated for their help.

The Fredericksburg Chapter of Ducks Unlimited, the Fredericksburg/Northern Neck Chapter of the Virginia Deer Hunters Association, the Mid Atlantic Chapter of the Paralyzed Veterans of America-Richmond, the McGuire Veterans Hospital in Richmond, the United Daughters of the Confederacy, the King George American Legion Post 79, South Hill American Legion Post 79, Veteran Arnold Beard for the invocation, Mr. and Mrs. Taylor for hosting the event at their farm, Chris Hallberg, Mr. Lewis Graves and friends for boat transportation for hunters, Bruce and Mike Lee, Willie Hamm, Richard Rose and Taylor McCann for their bird dogs for deer drives, chefs Chuck McCormack, John Fisk and John Wack and friends for food, refreshments and the meal, VDGIF Conservation Officer Josh Jackson for assisting with game checking, Rick Wilks for field dressing of all deer, Veterans Jeff Seveland and Mark Evans for skinning and quartering the harvested deer.

Buddy Fines had this to say about the hunt, “The success of a day’s hunt is very often judged by the harvest rather than the enjoyment experienced. However, on this day, the fellowship and camaraderie among the participants was evidenced during the hunt and at the day’s end. The laughter, the smiles and the appreciation displayed by the hunt’s participants set the tone for an enjoyable and safe day afield.”
