Vancouver, WA (October 11, 2012) -- The McNett® family of brands, Gear Aid™, Outgo®, Camo Form® and Aquamira®, is pleased to announce sponsorship of the second annual Hunting with Heroes weekend. The event begins October 12 when 45 veterans, representing all branches of the Armed Forces, are hosted to a weekend of hunting and fishing in Klickitat County. The weekend will conclude with the Night of the Patriot free community concert at Pearson Air Museum near Fort Vancouver. Music starts at 4 p.m. Sunday, October 14 and will be open to all.

“As one of the inaugural sponsors of Hunting with Heroes, we couldn't wait to go all out for this year's event,” said Travis Huisman, chief executive officer at McNett. “All of our employees and their families have contributed in one way or another, from writing thank you letters to stuffing gift bags, this will be a year our veterans will not soon forget.”

Veterans will be treated to an executive level outdoor experience including clay shooting and placing over 500 pheasants in pristine fields for hunting. Fishing guide services provided by Adventure Fishing will put the veterans on some of the best salmon, steelhead and trout fishing the Klickitat has to offer. The weekend will conclude with the veterans being escorted back to Vancouver, WA, led in presidential fashion by the Patriot Guard riders, to the Pearson Air Museum near historic Fort Vancouver for the Night of the Patriot community concert.

“Night of the Patriot was born when it was discovered that there are over 900,000 veterans in the Pacific Northwest. Reaching 45 veterans at a time would not be enough and something more was needed to extend our reach to all veterans,” said a representative from event sponsor Blaze Outdoor Adventures. “Its purpose was to involve the entire community in honoring veterans. The camaraderie will provide a healing experience and a welcome home that they have long deserved.”

The Hunting with Heroes event begins Friday, October 12 and concludes Sunday, October 14. For event information please visit: http://www.blazeoutdooradventures.com/?page_id=131.
