The PDR Hunt is scheduled for September 13-15, 2019.
The PDR Hunt is a free white-tail hunting weekend for physically disabled youth. Land-owners in the farming community of Clark, South Dakota (population 1,116) provide access to private land, (some of the nation’s most prime deer hunting acres) and tend to the needs of these special participants for this once a year event held in mid-September.
A lodge on the edge of town is used as base camp. It’s there that hunters and hosts first meet to get acquainted on Friday afternoon. Initially, each hunting party spends time practicing at the adjacent rifle range. (firearms provided if necessary) sharing meals together at the lodge, telling stories and making memories.
The PDR Hunt is an authentic, in-the-field big game adventure. Custom handicapped-accessible blinds are provided for every hunter, transportation to and from the field included, meals, snacks, and overnight accommodations are all inclusive for hunter with their guest.
According to PDR HUNT founder, Dean Rasmussen, “All the kids have to do after they register on-line and meet state licensing requirements, (i.e. hunter safety course completion and a youth deer license) is get here. We even cover the processing of venison if they harvest a deer.”
