Come join the Gateway Area Chapter of Safari Club International as we host the 2nd annual “SHOOT FOR THE VETS” to show our appreciation to our veterans and to benefit the veterans at Camp Hope located in Farmington, Missouri.     Camp Hope mission is to provide all expenses-paid hunting trips for veterans wounded in the global war on terror.

The event will be Saturday, October 12, 2019 at NILO Farms in Brighton, Il.    The shoot is open to both veterans and non-veterans.    Last year we had about 120 shooters, split pretty evenly between veterans and non-veterans.    We hope to get the 200 maximum shooters allowed this year.    If you know of anyone who would like to come shoot, please send them our way!
