Laine is a young hunter who has had an especially tough summer this year due to the extreme fire conditions in Western Montana.
But she didn’t let Cystic Fibrosis stop her from going on an elk hunting adventure recently thanks to Youth Outdoors Unlimited.
Youth Outdoors Unlimited was founded in 2011 to provide fully funded and guided hunting or fishing adventures to youth diagnosed with a life threatening illness and or a physical disability. The Y.O.U. organization gives these youth a one on one opportunity to experience the healing powers of the great outdoors.
Y.O.U. is 100% donation funded and provides these adventures completely free of charge through our fundraising efforts and generous sponsors.
Laine had a great hunt and successfully harvested a beautiful 5×6 Bull Elk provided through Threemile Canyon Farms out of Boardman, OR. The farming crew at Threemile Canyon joined together scouting for herds that would fulfill Laine’s dream of a bull elk hunt.
Laine will be receiving her mount at Y.O.U.’s Spokane banquet on Saturday, March 24th at the Maribeau Park Hotel and Conference Center donated by Jeremy Hegel at God’s Creation Taxidermy in Valley, WA. Ticket information is available on Y.O.U.’s website at firstname.lastname@example.org.
