Jackson County Hunting Heroes

The Jackson County Hunting Heroes started in 2013 with an idea to do a local wounded warrior type activity near Ripley, WV. Their mission is to improve the quality of life for US Veterans and their families through education, fellowship and building on tradition by providing recreational opportunities during their recovery and rehabilitation to promote healing and personal esteem.

 

Their events give our veterans an opportunity to come together and share their experiences. From these events, the Jackson County Hunting Heroes have personal testimonial of suicides being prevented and hunters have come to peace with their combat experiences, and one even moved from Florida to West Virginia to be nearer to people who cared. 

The people in and around Jackson County, WV have donated in excess of 8,000 acres to be used for the veteran’s hunts.  All the people administering and participating as guides, meat cutters, cooks, etc. are volunteers.  Any and all monies raised to support the Jackson County Hunting Heroes is used for the veterans and no salaries are paid.

 

This grassroots organization highlights the best of local citizens coming together to honor our veterans and offer them support and thanks for their sacrifices of personal time, safety and family to keep our country strong and safe.

 

We thank them and are honored to support them. Learn more at Jackson County Hunting Heroes.
