Sportsman of the Year is presented to our nation’s veterans to commemorate the service and sacrifice they have given us. From our founding to the present, America has been tested time and again, and our democracy — and our love of liberty — has not only survived, but thrived. They exemplify the steadfast courage that demonstrates why our armed forces are second to none and the finest on the planet. Sportsman Channel has asked Tom Taylor, co-founder of Honored America Veterans Afield (HAVA), to accept the Sportsman of the Year award on behalf of our armed forces and our phenomenal veterans.
The HAVA vision is the creation of a small organization of volunteers from the shooting sports industry to facilitate a series of hunting and shooting activities for groups of disabled veterans wherein personal attention of the sponsors and facility operators contributes to the veteran’s sense of joy and accomplishment, and a permanent awareness that marvelous things are possible despite disabling injuries. These veterans have given their full measure of commitment to the preservation of their country’s values, and deserve America’s contribution to their healing process to whatever degree necessary to accomplish physical, mental and cultural rehabilitation.
Do you only hunt deer at fenced in ranches?
Jim – We only hunt fair chase. No fenced ranches for us!
I had a few classes with you at UMKC and talked with you and Shawn a few times about hunting and you guys doing the show. Just wanted to let you know that HB has become my favorite hunting show. You guys do a great job! Keep up the good work.
P.s. hook me up with some HB swag!!!
