Peyton Roth, 10, didn’t let his physical limitations hinder him when he couldn’t view properly through the scope.
Instead, he used a cell phone that was attached to the scope on the .223 caliber rifle. Peyton, who has cerebral palsy, killed his first deer during a hunting trip Saturday along with Tony Nichols, of Dream Hunt Foundation, and Charlie Owens, Chief Deputy of the Bossier Sheriff’s Office.
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.
