BHA Armed Forces is hosting our first dual skill acquisition camp in Eastern Montana on November 7th-9th. This camp will host 10 veterans on a wall camp style deer hunt with five mentors. We will work in small teams during the day hunting deer with full mentorship for the tactile and hands-on portion. The evenings will be spent around a campfire with lead discussions around public lands and advocacy for a full cerebral dive.

This is not your typical hunt camp. We're looking for deep engagement- at camp and after.

Schedule:

  • Fri, Nov 6th: Afternoon/Evening Arrival
  • Sat, Nov 7th: Early arrivals, Camp and Hunt Begins
  • Sun, Nov 8th: Camp and Hunt
  • Mon, Nov 9th: Camp and Hunt, Structured Camp Ends
  • Tues Nov 10th: Voluntary Hunt Continues
  • Wed Nov 11th: Veterans Day, Voluntary Hunt Continues

We ask for attendees to arrive either Friday afternoon/evening on the 6th or early Saturday the 7th of November 2020. The camp will run Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Veterans are welcome to stay and hunt until the 11th.

Tactile:

Camp will be held on a public land location with areas for teams to hunt. Mentors will assign AO's for hunt locations each morning. Teams will disperse after early breakfast and hit the field. Field mentorship will include hunting aspects of hunting the wind, glassing, shooting, field dressing, meat care, CWD concerns, and carcass disposal.

Cerebral:

After time in the field, we'll spend our evenings eating dinner and holding campfire conversations. The dialogue will be lead by mentors will include Public Lands 101, Intro to Bills, and the Accelerating Veterans Recovery Outdoors Act. Each attendee will be prompted to build an engaging mission after this camp for follow through.
