Back in the Woods Again Hunt
BEAR CREEK, NC SEPTEMBER 22-23, 2017
Back in the Woods Again is a recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides sportsmen and women with disabilities a chance to get in the woods and hunt. The organization was founded by Tommy Estridge and World Champion bull rider Jerome Davis, who became paralyzed after being thrown from a bull in 1998. Last year, 82 hunters attended the event and harvested 70 deer. But Back in the Woods isn’t only about the hunt. With tremendous support from the community and sponsors, the organization had been able to provide their hunters with adaptive equipment, scholarships, donations, and much more.
This is a two-day event kicks off with a free round of sporting clays or free introductory clinic, followed by an evening reception and private concert. Day two is the actual shooting event which consists of a 16-station, 75-target sporting clays course and lunch.
