I wanted to take the time to write you about the hunt my family enjoyed at Okeechobee Outfitters.  I applied last summer for a hunt and was granted a hunt for my son in law and three grandchildren, Brian Magyar and his sons, Blake, Devin and Tanner.

All of them have some hunting experience but little.  I have hunted all my life all over North America and have experienced many outfitters.  I have to say that the staff at Okeechobee are one of the most professional and friendly persons I have ever met.  They are Christian acclaimed people as well which means a lot to me.  Because of the environment the outfitters created during our hunt, my son in law and grandsons had a hunt of their lives.  The hunt created memories they will remember for years to come.

I am grateful to you for your support of the Okeechobee Outfitters.  Without you, this former Marine and Vietnam Combat Vet would not have been able to create memories for me and my son in law and grandchildren.

Thank you

Mr. and Mrs. Hull,
I would like to express my sincere gratitude for your sponsorship of my family and I for the hog hunt we had through Okeechobee Outfitters and the Sportsmens Foundation for Military Families (SFMF).

My father in law is a Vietnam veteran, a retired police detective and most importantly a God fearing man, that my family and I look up to and aspire to be to be like. He has give so much of his life to making this world a better place and I am so grateful for an organization like the SFMF to recognize that men like him are not forgotten.

Being from Indiana we don’t get to see him much, since he lives in Florida, and this hunt has not only sparked fond old memories but has created an entire new set of unforgettable memories and that is one of the great things this is about… memories!

You can take many things away from someone but not memories they last a lifetime and that’s what you have afforded people to do! Our guides KC and Keith worked tirelessly for us and made our hunting experience even more memorable.

Everything was top notch and service great beyond words! My boys (Blake, Devin and Tanner), father in law and I have not stopped talking and texting about this hunt since we left making it our most memorable hunt to date!

Thank you again for your support and may God bless you and your family through this great organization!
