Half a dozen wounded warriors will be hunting on 18,000 acres of unspoiled wilderness all weekend at Barksdale Air Force Base.
Barksdale, in conjunction with the Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation, is hosting its first Wounded Warrior Hunt.
Six Air Force, Army, Navy and Marine service members, who've been injured in the performance of their duties, will have access to all kinds of wildlife during the three day event.
For some of the warriors, this weekend's hunt will be their first opportunity to leave the hospital and enjoy the outdoors as part of their ongoing recovery efforts.
"Just to go to an environment where you're out there with your fellow wounded warriors and all the great people who have made this possible to just kick back and relax and forget about everything else and just focus on having a good time," said Petty First Officer Todd Hammond who lost part of his leg last year.
The warriors will start hunting first thing Saturday morning.
