As someone who served in the military (18-years RCAF Reserves), it was a privilege to produce this story.

This upcoming feature is not your average hunting story. I want to draw attention to an on-going issue faced by veterans, PTSD. Here in Alberta, a unique organization is providing an opportunity for veterans to share some hunting opportunities, which serves as a critical therapy approach in the recovery of this mental illness.

I would also like to thank the Alberta Fish and Game Association - Red Deer Club - for hosting the event and the volunteers who came out to ensure everything ran smoothly.
