Terry Miller Farm

Wounded Warrior Pheasant Hunt

It’s the last weekend of the pheasant season. We will be hunting the tall grass next to the corn fields thanks to Terry Miller and his farm which is covered with pheasants. We head out to the fields with the Vets, dogs and guides and the pheasants are flushing everywhere. Mostly hens which is common for a late season hunt but there are roosters as well. We manage to knock some down for the dinner table. It has been a great hunt for all and the Vets go home with pheasant meat. After the hunt we head to Sterling for lunch.

A big thanks to Terry and his brothers for a great day!

Hello Bob,

I was honored to be part of the Veteran’s hunt you put together with Brother Terry on his farm. It was rewarding to see the group of former soldiers work hard on such a windy day to get shots at the wild roosters this late in the season. It was also great to see the large number of hens Terry has on the property.

The habitat Terry has developed on his property has taken years to establish. I have assisted Terry using resources from Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s Pheasant Habitat Improvement Program and the local Northeast Colorado Chapter of Pheasants Forever. As a Farm Bill Wildlife Biologist, it’s my job to help private landowners like Terry understand what is needed for quality wildlife habitat and how to access programs from Pheasants Forever and State and Federal agencies to complete habitat projects.

Thank you again for giving the men and women who have served our country the opportunity to enjoy a Colorado Pheasant hunt.

Jerry

Valhalla Hunt Club
Trap Shoot, Pheasant Hunt and Lunch
Craig Hospital Patients

Our group today consists of hunters from all over the country, the van from Craig Hospital arrives at 10:30 and we head straight to the trap range. These guys are great shots, the clays didn’t have a chance. Then we head down to the clubhouse for some lunch and chocolate chip cookies the size of pizza’s. Lunch is over and it’s time to hunt pheasants in the tall grass. The dogs are ready, I believe hunting dogs are always ready. Dogs go on point, pheasants fly and pheasants fall. Everyone is smiling and having a great day except for the pheasants but they will taste good tonight back at the hospital.

For Operation TBI Freedom

Hosted by Alan Nebrado

We have some Vets from Operation TBI this weekend for some pheasant and goose hunting. We meet at Allen’s farm in Holyoke Saturday morning for the pheasant hunt, walking the fields with the dogs and volunteers. It’s a late season, we flush 20 to 30 birds mostly hens but we manage to knock down some roosters. Everyone gets a chance and we are all having a great time. It is time for lunch and we head into town for some barbecue prepared by Allen’s friend who just opened the restaurant last week. After lunch a smaller group guided by Allen head back to the fields. The group will be staying in Holyoke tonight and will be up with the sun for the goose hunt.

A big thanks to Allen, the volunteers and the birds that cooperated!

We have an enthusiastic group of men and women for some archery instruction and a fun day on the range thanks to the expert staff at RMS Gear. We will be using recurve and compound bows. We start with the fundamentals and the shooting begins, we have beginners to experts and everything in between. Some of the beginners pick up on it very quickly with just a little instruction. Before lunch we put up the balloons for them to see who is the top balloon killer and be awarded a prize at the end of the outing. Kathy from Craig Hospital is the winner with 9 balloons using a recurve bow. She is already excited about next month’s archery outing. The pizza’s arrive and everyone gathers for lunch. Everyone has had a great time.

A big thanks to RMS Gear and all of the volunteers!

It’s a warm winter day in Bennett, Colorado. The Craig Hospital bus arrives at Valhalla Hunt Club at 11;00 with some experienced bird hunters. We head to the trap range to get a little tune up in and get familiary with the track chairs which we will be using after lunch for the pheasant hunt. The shooters are knocking down the clays and are having a good time, even the staff joins in. At 12;30 we head down to the club house for lunch and some pre-hunt chatter.

Lunch is over, the dogs are ready, along with everyone else. We head up to the fields. The dogs go on point and the hunters start shooting, pheasants are falling. All four hunters will be going home with pheasant meat for the table.

It’s been a great day!

Family Fishing, Archery and Lunch for Operation TBI, Freedom Hunters and Craig Hospital

It’s a beautiful warm Colorado fall day for fishing and archery, we have Wounded Warriors, Craig Hospital patients, alumni and family members. We have many ponds and boats so we will fish the banks and paddle around to cover a little more area. Everyone is having a great time whether they are catching fish or just enjoying the scenery. Many children and adults are also having fun at the archery range.

At mid-day we head to the barn for a special lunch donated by the Escoffier Culinary Academy from Boulder. They have been working with us through out the season. After lunch it is back to the ponds and archery range. It’s been a wonderful day for all. A big thanks to Austin Brown from Colderweather, Ashlen from Escoffier Culinary Academy and all the groups that participated today.
