Last week I had the privilege of hosting a 14 year old young man, Jim Yanez of Round Rock, who has leukemia, on his dream hunt for a scimitar horned oryx on behalf of the Texas Outdoor CHILD charity. Travis Buell of Harper worked with Brian Gilroy who owns the 5G ranch near Mountain Home to make the hunt happen. Cam French, ranch foreman and head dishwasher at the 5G was Jim's guide. We decided to move the hunt up to Thursday and Friday in order to miss the rain. Man was that ever a great decision.

Texan, great job in bringing some joy and respite to this young man during his cancer battle. I was always impressed by the generosity of the hunting community when it comes to sponsors the disease afflicted youth. My son whom also battled Leukemia for nearly 5 years was offered no less than 2-3 opportunities to hunt whitetail, bear or exotics during that time. We politely declined letting someone else without hunting opportunities partake but the gesture of generosity always made me proud of my fellow hunters!

up Way to go Jim, glad you got a good one

A big thanks to all involved with making this hunt happen. Speaking from experience there is not much more uplifting for those that work these hunts than a successful good time for the one the hunt is for.
