ABOUT
Combat Warrior Outfitters

SITUATION

  • 1.1 million officially disabled veterans have physical injuries that make archery a difficult endeavor.

  • Even more veterans suffer from post-traumatic stress (PTS).

  • Archery and bowhunting are physically and mentally demanding sports that bring focus and a sense of achievement that go further than pill prescriptions.

EXECUTION

We plan to hold archery retreats once a month from February to May, and twice in September 2023. Archery retreats will include:

  • A multi-day all-inclusive hunting retreat experience, at no cost to veteran participants.

  • Free use of archery equipment and rifles customized for the shooters injuries.

  • Custom fitment and archery instruction from Archery professionals.

  • A professionally guided exotic game hunt at any one of 3 locations in West Texas or Western Louisiana.

  • Fireside resiliency chats with our executive Director, Mike Hagen.

  • 5 days of fellowship and comradery in a relaxing and challenging environment, away from daily life stressors.

SUPPORT

CWO is partnered with Wallhangers outdoors for archery system outfitting and pro staff instruction. We also partner with H&S Ranch and Alpha Outfitters for venue support.

We are a registered vendor with The Department of Veterans Affairs, and we rely mainly on private donations from individuals and organizations who care about our mission.

MISSION

Our mission is to advance the benefits of adaptive archery and bowhunting in the veteran community to combat Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) and show disabled veterans that they are never out of the fight!
