Disabled Outdoorsmen USA: The goal of this organization isn’t centered around one set of disabilities or age ranges, there isn’t really any organization out there that does what they do. Most are centered around war veterans, but not so for this organization, it is geared to help all disabled outdoorsmen. As of 2016 in the United States alone, 12.8 percent of the population, or approximately 38.8 million people, have some type of disability, according to the United States Disability Compendium. An average hunting trip through Disabled Outdoorsmen costs Jenkins anywhere from $1.5 K – $2.5 K to arrange. This includes plane tickets, fuel, ammo, food and merchandise that is given to the hunters. Since the first hunt in November of 2018, the organization took off in terms of supporters and fundraising.
Texas Game Wardens: The goal is to protect wildlife and uphold the law. As the largest state in the continental US with an abundance of natural resources, especially along the international border with Mexico, game wardens in Texas play an important law enforcement roles.
Texas Youth Hunting Program: Our mission is to give Texas disadvantaged youth, aged 10-16, an opportunity to hunt, inspire kids to learn wildlife conservation, preservation, and hunter safety.
Our Goal: We want to make it possible for any child in the great State of Texas to have the opportunity to hunt. Through donations and fundraisers, our ultimate goal is to one day have a ranch where children and their families of any background or financial standing can come to learn about hunting, the outdoors, wildlife and grow as a family.
