After 31 years, Helluva Hunt in Douglas, Wyoming, may be winding down. Founders Jane & Gary Stearns have decided that it’s time to pass the torch… “I want everyone to know that we have been honored to help out so many great individuals over the past three decades!” says Jane.
This wonderful event saw hunters from all over the United States converge on Douglas every year. In October these challenged hunters came to hunt pronghorn antelope over thousands of beautiful acres on nearby ranches. Every single attendee had a personal guide (or guides), and was taken out and equipped no matter what their disability may have been.
Although they feel the time has come to step down, Jane and Gary aren’t ready to end the organization. Nothing would make them happier than to hand the reins over to someone else who shared their passion and vision to carry out the Helluva Hunt mission. But those are some mighty big shoes to fill, and nothing short will be acceptable.
The annual Helluva Hunt was a great event that touched a lot of lives. A lot of wonderful, generous people made it one of the longest-standing big game hunts for able sportsmen & women. Regardless of its future, the legacy of Helluva Hunt will live on in the hearts and minds of all who have been a part of its events.
