Episode 067: Dan Burns – President of Nevin’s Hunting Friends

In this episode, I talk with Daniel Burns, whose son came up with the idea to start Nevin’s Hunting Friends (http://www.nevinshuntingfriends.com). A group dedicated to getting kids with special needs outdoors. Their mission is simple, “to help those kids that have trouble getting into the woods due to their illness”.

Nevin’s Hunting Friends is a 501c3 charity and can be contacted from their website listed above or by the groups Facebook page (@nevinshuntingfriends). You can view past hunts on the GEN 7 Outdoors TV Channel by clicking here.

If you are a manufacturer of hunting or fishing gear, I would encourage you to look at this special needs group and see if you can provide some gear to help keep these young kids in the outdoors.
