Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington hosted two young hunters with disabilities from the Dream Hunt Foundation last Saturday in north Bossier Parish. Dream Hunt Foundation is a Louisiana-based nonprofit organization that gives children with special needs or who are underprivileged the chance to go on a guided hunt.
Cameron Hollis and Reed Edwards, both 13, had successful hunts Saturday morning. Hollis shot an 8-point buck and Edwards shot a doe. Both young men were thankful for the opportunity given to them by the Bossier Sheriff’s Office and the Dream Hunt Foundation.
The Bossier Sheriff’s Office has hosted the Dream Hunt Foundation for several years now, and Sheriff Whittington, an avid hunter, is excited to work with such a great organization.
“It’s one of the best programs I’ve ever seen,” said Sheriff Whittington. “These hunters dedicate their time to bring these young people out who otherwise would not be able to get up in a deer stand because of different difficulties they face,” he said. “We’re giving them an opportunity to hunt.”
The Dream Hunt Foundation was founded in spring 2013 by Jeff Warren to make a difference in the lives of children with special medical needs.
