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.

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.

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.

It’s a cool Colorado morning in the mountains. The creek and ponds are crystal clear, and the fish are active. We have a group of Wounded Vets and Craig Hospital patients ready to try their luck at fly fishing. Most are beginners and will receive instruction from the staff of Lincoln Hills; but, first we have coffee and pastries. Then we break into groups for the basic instructions, and after that it is down to the creek and ponds.

We hookup with some big trout, some are landed and some escape. Everyone is smiling and having a great time. After a few hours we head up to the clubhouse deck and are treated to a great lunch and of course the traditional fish stories. A great day thanks to the Lincoln Hills staff.
