Former Military Warriors Join the Hunt with Bobcat Group Co-founders

Former soldiers now with the Military Warriors Support Foundation (MWSF) recently gathered at the ranch of Bobcat Group co-founder William “Scooter” Scott. He and Bobcat partner and co-founder Shea Morenz joined these veterans as they hunted, shot skeet and sat by the fire, sharing common experiences with their fellow heroes.

Scooter has hosted MWSF members for years at his 11,000-acre ranch in Irion County, Texas. He says that giving something back to these men and women has been a great privilege.

“These individuals serve their country and ask for absolutely nothing in return. They are the ultimate example of what it is to be selfless. When they come home, they sometimes feel forgotten. I’m here to show them they are not,” said Scott.

Morenz added, “All of us here realize that freedom is not free. Bobcat Group is so very honored to support these amazing men and the MWSF’s mission through this unique event. These guys really represent the heart and soul of America and deserve our continued respect and support.”

Other special guests included Rick Perry, former Republican Texas governor and former U.S. Secretary of Energy; Lieutenant General Leroy Sisco who founded the organization in 2007; Command Sergeant David Daugherty who has helped organize the hunts over the years and Salvatore Giunta.  Giunta is the first living person since the Vietnam War to receive the Medal of Honor, the U.S. military’s highest decoration for valor.  He was awarded the medal for his actions in Eastern Afghanistan’s highly-lethal Korangal Valley, then considered one of the military’s most dangerous postings.

Another highlight of the weekend was made possible by high school welding teacher Dorman Vick and his students at Samuel V. Champion High School in Boerne, Texas.  The students made a special trailer which served as a hunting blind for retired Army specialist and Purple Heart recipient Michael Crawford, who was wounded in Afghanistan and is now wheelchair bound.  Crawford shot a 27-inch wide whitetail deer, the widest ever shot on the ranch. And the trailer is his to keep!
