Looking for Your Help - Donate Used or New Gear
« on: May 03, 2021, 09:29:26 AM »
I've been supporting and mentoring new hunters who are traditionally from lower income jobs (specifically those in full-time church work like pastors or missionaries) for the last few years. Last year, I was able to help a physically disabled pastor and his two sons get out on their first deer/turkey hunt with some success.

This year, I'm working with two guys, one a youth pastor (and former Air Force vet) and another pastor, who've never hunted. They've both been through some turmoil this past year (like many of us) and are looking to take hunting on as a way to refresh and let go of some of the burdens they carry.

That's where you come in.

I'm looking for help gathering gear or donations to purchase gear, if anyone is interested. The folks above will be the recipients of used or new equipment that can help get them on their way to a lifetime love of hunting and the outdoors. If you'd like to participate, here's some ideas:

You can:

  - Donate Gear - Help provide gear for a "Gear Locker" that will be made available for those who go on hunting trips in 2021 and beyond. I'll be gathering all kinds of items for future use by new hunters and would love as much used/new gear as I can take. Items needed may include, but are not limited to:

   Archery gear for new bowhunters
   Blaze Orange Hat/Caps
   Blaze Vests or Jackets
   Camo clothing of all sizes
   Spotting Scopes
   Tri-Pods
   Binoculars
   Calls (ducks, geese, turkey, deer, Foxpro, etc.)
   Maps or GPS or compasses
   Backpacks
   Hunting knives
   Gutting & Skinning kits
   Deer drags
   Hunting Gloves
   Hunting Hats
   Fleece Jackets
   Camo Pants
   Boots (Rubber for wet days/water crossings)
   Boots (Leather for big game hunting)
   Raingear (pants/jackets/ponchos)
   Headlamps
   Game bags
   Scent Control
   Rangefinders
   Hand warmers
   Gun cases
   Ground blinds or layout blinds
   Emergency Preparedness Kits
           - First Aid stuff
           - Fire Making stuff
           - Bivy Sack
           - Water filtration/iodine tablets
           - Paracord
           - Whistle
           - Etc.

And anything else that might be of usefulness.

or

  -  Make a Donation (give a tax-free donation) to help make this trip happen. Yes, as a full-time missionary, I have a fund that can be used to cover costs for this type of retreat. Simply click here to make a tax-free donation: https://www.paraclete.net/project/the-ministry-care-fund/

Thank you for reading and considering getting involved.

I have some older bows. They're real good bows for their day, but old now. Do you think they'd be useful in this context?

Could meet when I pass through Silverdale.

I know I have some extra camo and blaze orange hats and vests.  I probably have some other gear I can toss in as well. 

Great cause and Silverdale has some great stories about his mission and those he has been able to help.  Stand up guy!
