The foundation organizes hunts for disabled adults and youth alike. Each hunt is guided by skilled outdoorsmen who donate their time and expertise to make sure every outing is a success.

SSF organizes two guided, three-day deer hunts every year with an average of six hunters on each excursion. Keeping the guide/hunter ratio low makes for a great time of camaraderie and fellowship. As a result, guides and hunters form lifelong friendships.

Our adult hunt has been nicknamed the “Redneck Safari,” an indication of the humor and fun times each hunt brings. Our “Hunt of a Lifetime”, planned exclusively for younger hunters, has lived up to its name for many youth, and is a cooperative effort of Starch Creek Hunting Club and SSF.

“It gave me a sense of freedom and independence that I was lacking. Once I’m set up, I’m independent.”
