BOSSIER SHERIFF’S OFFICE PROVIDES UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY

FOR CHILDEN WITH DISABILITIES

Saturday, Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington hosted two young hunters in the Dream Hunt Foundation Saturday in north Bossier Parish. The Dream Hunt Foundation is a Louisiana-based nonprofit organization that gives children with special needs or who are underprivileged the chance to go on a guided hunt.

Hunters Nolan Ezernack, 14 years old of Zwolle and Dalton Land, 15 years old of Pineville spent the day in the woods of Plain Dealing with guides Chad Primos, Ben Mabry, Keith Ratcliff and Seth Childers from the Dream Hunt Foundation. .

This is the third year the Sheriff’s Office helped the Dream Hunt Foundation, and Sheriff Whittington, an avid hunter, is excited to partner with such a great organization.

“It’s one of the best programs I’ve ever seen,” said Sheriff Whittington. “These hunters dedicate their time to bring these young people out who otherwise would not be able to get up in a deer stand because of the difficulties they face,” he said. “We’re giving them an opportunity to hunt.”

The Sheriff’s Office rifle range was the primary site for this year’s hunt. They also took the kids to some land on the east side of the P-Farm as a secondary site looking for wild game. Despite not seeing anything to shoot this year’s the Dream Hunt was a success for both the kids and all the guides in this event.
