The Bluffs – Pheasant Hunt

The Bluffs – Pheasant Hunt
Byers, Colorado

Operation TBI Freedom and Freedom Hunters

DSCI Humanitarian Outreach Program

It is a very hot day on the Eastern plains of Colorado, we gather at the club house around 11:00 and start with basic safety instructions. Then we move to the trap range for a tune up. We have seven Vets anxious to see the birds fly. We have lunch around Noon and discuss the upcoming hunt. We will break into two groups, one using a pointing dog and one a flushing dog. Lunch is over and the hunt begins, we head out to the tall grass and the dogs go to work. Birds fly some keep flying and others will be dinner. Everyone is having a great time and everyone shoots at least one bird but the heat takes its toll on the dogs so after a couple of hours we had back to the lodge for bird cleaning 101. It has been a great day for all.

Thanks to the staff at The Bluffs and a big thanks to all the Vets!

Pheasant Hunt for Vets with Terry Miller

Terry Miller Farm
Sterling, Colorado
Operation TBI and Freedom Hunters
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

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.

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 beautiful fall day in the Colorado mountains, we are going to be fly fishing South Boulder Creek with a group of Wounded Warriors guided by the expert staff of Lincoln Hills.

Everyone is having a great time, most are beginners and will be fly fishing in the future. Around 1:00pm we head up to the clubhouse for a great lunch and some fish stories.
