Wounded Warrior Elk Hunt
September 15, 2009
Take two Iraq or Afghanistan/decorated/disabled/Veterans/ "Warriors" on a bull elk hunt with Elk Safaris west at the Squirrel Creek hunting camp which is located in some of the most scenic country in the Rocky Mountains, located only 15 miles from Yellowstone National park and Grand Teton National Park makes this hunt even more exciting as the opportunities for an action packed adventure are endless. The hunt will consist of a 4 day 3 night stay and hunt at the beautiful Squirrel Creek Ranch, with all meals, accommodations, and guide included. There will also be the possibility for the Warriors to hunt pheasant and chukar, fish for trout, visit Jackson Hole Wyoming, the Grand Tetons, and much more as time allows. The Adventure will also be filmed by Outdoorsman and High on Life Outdoor Adventures and then will be showed on the Outdoorsman television show which airs on AMG and Untamed Sports Network.
