Sportsmen's Foundation for Military Families

I would like to take a minute to tell you how much I truly appreciate the
hunting opportunity The Sportsman’s Foundation for Military Families (SFMF)
provided me.  Without your gracious donations to The SFMF, many of the Men and
Women that defend our great nation would never be able to afford such an
experience of a lifetime.  The SFMF gave me an opportunity to get away from the
hassles of everyday life and get out and enjoy what a lot of folks take for
granted – “Freedom”.

When I found the SFMF website and applied, I never really thought I would be one
of the individuals selected for a trip.  I was amazed at how fast Danny St
Angelo responded to my application; we are talking hours, not days. The SFMF
offered me a couple different opportunities; I decided a Whitetail Deer Hunting
trip to Sampson County, NC was calling my name.  When I arrived at Buffalo Creek
Hunting Lodge, I was pleased to find a down to earth working man’s hunting
lodge.  There were not a lot of bells and whistle and that is just how I like
it.  The Owner’s and Guides made me feel like I was part of the family.  The
facilities, food, hospitality, and hunting were outstanding.  I ended up hunting
for three days; it started out a little slow, but the action pick-up rather
fast.  I was lucky enough to kill a nice buck and doe to take back home for the

Once again, without your gracious donations trips like this would not be
available for the Men and Women that fight to keep our great Country free.

To sum it all up, “Thank You” and always remember “Freedom isn’t Free”.
