Wounded Warrior Pheasant Hunt

MINOT, N.D. - The second annual Wounded Warrior Pheasant Hunt is taking place this weekend in Garrison.

Five Purple Heart recipients arrived in Minot and were taken to Scheels to get outfitted with all the hunting gear they need.

We spoke with event coordinators on what this trip means to the veterans.

"It is an awesome time to bring in our heroes that were wounded in combat. Spend some time with them. Show them our appreciation for their sacrifice and just honor them. This is a time for them to come to Garrison and bond with the wildlife," said said Roy McKenzie, event coordinator.

The group will spend the next three days pheasant hunting in Garrison, and for a lot of them this is their first time hunting.
