Edmundson Hunting and Outreach Excursion

The Warrior:

Eric Edmundson, a warrior wounded in a 2005 incident, is able to hunt with an adapted ATV equipped with a five-point harness, special weapon mount and siting screen. Hunting has been Eric’s lifelong passion – and with your help, WWP is now assisting him in fulfilling his “grand slam” hunting list of large game animals. He will be accompanied on this excursion by his parents and caregivers, Ed and Beth Edmundson.
