Veterans encouraged to apply for Jackson, S.C. deer hunt
The S.C. Department of Natural Resources and Cowden Plantation near Jackson, S.C. are offering their thanks and appreciation to our military (active, retired, reserved, disabled) in memory of Spc. Thomas Caughman by hosting two free deer hunts, Nov. 14, 2014 and Dec. 19, 2014.
Successful applicants will have lunch before the hunt as well as the opportunity to tour the Jarrett Rifles Gun Shop and Museum.
For those interested in attending one of the hunts, please fill out an application (PDF file) and send it to Jessica Gibson via Fax (803) 734-4491 or email (email@example.com). The department is accepting the first 20 applications for each hunt until Oct. 17, 2014. Once the application is received you will be sent a confirmation email with further details about the hunt.
Spc. Caughman of Lexington, S.C. was killed in 2004 while serving during Operation Iraqi Freedom when his Humvee was struck by rocket-propelled grenades and small-arms fire in Baghdad.
