It was in 2008 that Col. Michael Steele and Chris Heald came up with the idea of hosting a waterfowl hunt for injured soldiers. The premise of the event was to have injured soldiers from Canada and the United States share a week long waterfowl hunt together to spend some time outdoors with friends, take them away from their daily pressures, and possibly change their outlook on life.
The current format for the Faces of Freedom hunt is a one-day waterfowl field hunt for all active duty soldiers and veterans that includes a morning skeet shoot and lunch. This fantastic program will also provide firearms and shells to participants. There is no cost to register for this program however all registrants must possess a valid Hunters Education Card, Provincial Migratory Game Bird License, Federal Migratory Game Bird Permit and Habitat Conservation stamp.
This year the MWF is proud to present the 6th Annual Faces of Freedom Waterfowl Hunt on October 09, 2016.
