Youth Deer Hunt For Kids With Disabilities

September 17, 2011, 6:00 PM by Erich Schaffhauser

Youth Deer Hunt For Kids With Disabilities
CLARK, SD - It's the time of year to start thinking about deer hunting .

And, for a special group of kids in Clark this weekend, the hunt is on.

The PDR Youth Deer Hunt provides kids with disabilities with the opportunity to take the field and nab a doe.

Before the sun even came up, these early risers were eating and hanging out with friends at a hunting lodge near Clark. That's just the beginning of this special day for kids like Andre Bieber.

"I think this is really cool because going hunting with people that have disabilities like me is, I think that's really cool," Bieber said. It's his first time at the PDR Youth Deer hunt.

It's Eric Tulowetzke's first time too.

"My step-dad told me about it. He asked me if I wanted to go and I said, 'yes," Tulowetske said.

They both join eight other hunters taking to the field this year after a doe, which is twice the number they've ever had in the past. In fact, the first year there were only three.

"So it has progressed; each year it seems to be getting bigger," Organizer Dean Rasmussen said. "And hopefully we're getting better at what we do."

After time in the cabin includes a trip to the field, sometimes a very bumpy one at that to a blind where young hunters hope a deer will pass by.

With the event growing, Founder Dean Rasmussen hopes more and more kids can enjoy the experience.

"We have a great bunch of kids. They're a lot of fun. They're what it's about," Rasmussen said.

Brady Bunker is back for his second hunt.

"I got my dad to come along this year and we're hoping to have some fun," Bunker said.

Or, at the very least, help newcomers with the opportunity to create some lasting memories.

"I've shot prairie dogs but really haven't done a whole lot of hunting. I'm excited to start," Bieber said.

"I hope I get better at aiming and I hope I get some beef jerky," Tulowetzke said.

The number of people volunteering to help with the hunt has grown as well. The hunt's founder said he couldn't even count the number of people who've helped out.
