Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington was pleased to provide a hunting opportunity for Peyton and two others, Jake Skipper and Dalton Cooper, in northern Bossier Parish over the weekend.  Dream Hunt Foundation works closely with Shriner’s Hospital and is a non-profit organization founded in 2013 by Jeff Warren to provide a dream hunt experience for children with special needs or underprivileged children aged 11 to 18.

There were a total of 10 kids in the northwest area participating in the first-ever Dream Hunt Weekend.
