LSON Foundation hosts young hunter

The Lone Star Outdoor News Foundation recently hosted Dallas resident Marty Gatens to their lease in Dimmit County, and Marty ended up taking his first buck on the hunt.

The nice 8-point walked out in front of a blind the foundation calls the “Gus Blind.”

Marty took a steady aim in the Nature Blind and dropped the buck with a perfect shot, while LSON Founder David J. Sams looked on.

Congratulations to Marty on a great hunt.

The LSON Foundation is hosting two more kids and their families this weekend on the ranch. The two young hunters were selected from a group of students who participate in the Dallas Safari Club’s Dallas Ecological Foundation program. The young hunters wrote essays on what hunting means to them, and were chosen from a large pool of essay writers.

Check back next week for a hunt report.
