Eddie bags a trophy bear in NC!
As 2015 comes to a close, it has been a most rewarding year for the USSA here in NC. I am so honored to be the state rep for this awesome organization. I would like to thank all of our sponsors and the NC Wildlife Resource Commission for working so close with us. This fine young man took this 300 lbs. bear and made a perfect long shot. Volunteer work, such as this makes you appreciate your heath and you children's health. I look forward to what the Lord has in store for the USSA next year. God Bless

13th annual IL Dream Hunt - Rick Stillman said, “ Anthony was the last hunter to come in Sunday morning, partly because he was hunting with me but mostly because he toughed thru the boredom and being cold to put it all together at crunch time and make a great shot on this nice doe, dropping her in her tracks a little before 9 AM. Super proud of him.”
Since 2008, under Broken Wings (UBW) a division of the Ruffed Grouse Society has sponsored a grouse hunt for USSA. This years hunt went to a young man from Texas and his brother.
American Hero Harvest Unique Colored Deer!
It is truly an honor to give back to a veteran who sacrifices so much for the safety of our country. Ian harvested his Piebald deer just as the sun was setting last Saturday. It was not an easy hunt, but it was very memorable for all those involved. Ian commented, “The best part of the hunt; The piebald! :-)” Last year when Veteran Bob Johnson harvested his deer, there was a Piebald in the same area. That Piebald in all likelihood was the deer Ian harvested this year. Perhaps Bob was smiling down from Heaven as his fellow serviceman harvested the most unusual deer in his lifetime. Darrell Kauth, Veteran Hunt Coordinator
Catching Bigger Fish Rodeo in Louisiana What a fabulous day we had in Pierre Part yesterday for the second annual Catching Bigger Fish fishing rodeo! 16 young people with special needs from across south Louisiana participated in a day of fishing on Lake Verret. We prayed for sunshine and hungry fish and we got both! Lots of smiles all around, the nicest and most generous people you will ever meet, great food, perfect weather we couldn't ask for more. I know Austin was smiling down on us. A HUGE thank you to Winston and Bridget Michel for hosting the event in your own backyard, and also to Andy Bishop (LA Rep.) who is instrumental in organizing an event of this size. You put your hearts into this and made some very deserving kids very happy. Many others gave of their time and talent including the fishermen from Fishers of Men Louisiana South Division and their sponsors, Louisiana Dept. of Wildlife and Fisheries, Tony Chachere, Father Al Davidson, Bayside Tackle, and so many more! From the bottom of our ever so grateful hearts, THANK YOU!! Kevin and Rene Rivault
