Military Tribute Hunts
Jim Shockey's Hunting Adventures gets numerous requests for charity hunts each year. Jim decided several years ago to focus our efforts on honoring Canadian and USA military personnel who help protect our great countries. We do this by doing what we do best - we take our veterans on a guided all expense paid hunt to one of Jim’s outfitting areas. Ideally we like to find candidates who have served together to hunt in pairs as it adds considerable enjoyment to the experience to be able to share it with a “hunting buddy”.
Jim Shockey's Hunting Adventures pays all expenses for the veterans including hunt costs, transportation, tips, taxidermy, etc. Once the candidate has been confirmed through our vetting process, our motto is “you will never have to take your wallet out of your pocket – just enjoy this trip of a lifetime”.
Funding for this program is primarily generated through the Desert Shoot Out golf outing which Jim hosts every February at Loews Ventana Canyon in Tucson, AZ.

2013 HUNTING TRIPSDue to a good turnout of golfers and many sponsor donations for the auction at the 2013 Desert Golf Shoot Out, Jim Shockey’s Hunting Adventures will take two Airmen elk hunting and two Navy Seals antelope hunting in New Mexico this fall. Thanks to the generosity of Vietnam era Marine and good friend Tracy Noll, we are also taking two Marines bear hunting on Vancouver Island this fall. Also thanks to our partners at APICDA Joint Ventures for co-sponsoring a veteran for a fly in salmon fishing trip in Alaska.
