Heritage Game Mounts and AlamoSCI are a proud members of Safari Club International. Their Wounded Warrior and Sensory Safari programs are to be commended. We attended the AlamoSCI 2011 Annual Hunter’s Heritage Banquet & Fundraiser on August 13 with our handsome exhibitors booth and donated to the raffle. HGM made several new friends, including Double Nickle Taxidermy of New Braunfels, TX and Mainz Furs, Ltd. of Comfort, TX.
During the evening we enjoyed the company of two of our wounded warriors. Our chapter provides hunting opportunities for disabled, wheelchair and wounded warriors. Mark Ness says, “There is something about hunting and being outdoors that rejuvenates the body and spirit.”
In July we volunteered at the 18th SCI Sensory Safari at the Texas Lions Camp – a rewarding experience offering children and adults, especially individuals with visual impairment a unique opportunity to “see” wildlife through the sense of touch. Using skins, mounts, skulls, antlers and horns we were able to bring the beauty of wild animals to many.
