The hunt will be a spot-and-stalk hunt and all the meat, hide, and head will be put to good use through the gracious donations of the supporters of Denver-based American Heroes in Action.
Bison rancher Ken Klemm of Homestead Ranch in Sherman County has been wanting to give back to our troops in a very real way for years. We understand how ethical hunting and time in nature can help heal the soul and we wanted to be part of that.”
Klemm has worked closely with retired Command Sgt. Maj. Dale Veneklasen to organize this hunt. Veneklasen served in the cavalry unit known as the Buffalo Soldiers in many deployments. The buffalo is central to their military culture and the hunt will provide a special significance.
Partners Klemm and Peter Thieriot of The Buffalo Guys hope to grow this first wounded warrior hunt into an annual tradition of thanks and remembrance for the men and women who serve us in harm’s way.
