Arkansas Group Uses Hunting For Therapy

posted on August 6, 2016

A northwest Arkansas nonprofit is seeking participants and volunteers for its hunting program that is used for therapeutic purposes.

Buckmasters NWA hosts all-expenses-paid hunting trips for veterans, first responders, and disabled or critically ill children. In fact, the organization has taken more than 700 disabled individuals and ill children hunting over the past 25 years.

“We want to show compassion for the critically ill children who may not be able to go out into the outdoors,” Lindell Roth, organization president, told KFSM. “We want to encourage [applicants] to get outdoors. We realized that is good therapy for them.”

Roth added that those who volunteer will witness firsthand what participating in such an event means to others. “Words can’t describe it,” he said. “You have to see it, and feel it, to know what the experience really is.”
