One-Armed Dove Hunt

The One-Armed Dove Hunt, held in Olney, Texas, on Labor Day weekend, started as a joke in 1972 but became a tradition and has grown as the only event of its kind on earth. It’s an example of what a hometown community can do for the disabled.  Every person with the loss of use of an arm or hand, or an arm or hand amputee across the nation is invited.  We are located 45 miles south of Wichita Falls, Texas on Highway 114. “The amputees in attendance find the two day event not only a source of psychological support but an invaluable opportunity to exchange information, ideas and technology—-all in a relaxed atmosphere of fun and fellowship each shooting for a better tomorrow.” Contact Jack Northrup at (940) 564-8867 or 1armjack@brazosnet.com.
