New Berlin, Wis. –(Ammoland.com)- After a wish-granting foundation denied Tina Pattison’s son the opportunity to fulfil his dying wish – a moose hunt, she took matters into her own hands and founded Hunt of a Lifetime, with a mission to provide terminally-ill youth with the opportunity to live out their hunting dreams. Field host Tara Conner visits the foundation and joins two brothers, battling terminal illness, for a whitetail deer hunt of a lifetime on this week’s episode of Amazing America with Sarah Palin airing exclusively on Thursday, February 26 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Sportsman Channel.
Hunt of a Lifetime works to ensure children dealing with terminal illness have the chance to experience hunting adventures like never before – including two young brothers, both suffering from muscular dystrophy. Conner embarks on a hunt for whitetail deer with the duo, whose inspiring story and vibrant personalities shine through in the field.
“It is a humbling and awe-inspiring experience when you meet people who have a mission and stick to their guns without backing down,” said Conner. “These are kids who just want to live normal lives, and getting to experience the outdoors is a huge part of that.”
Bravery and inspiration continue as field host Jerry Carroll visits Kevin Shea, a volunteer firefighter, whose love of hunting inspired the founding of Hero Hunt Club. Shea helps provide affordable hunting trips around the country to firefighters and police officers. Carroll teams up with Shea to hunt with a few of New York’s bravest firefighters.
Amazing America with Sarah Palin airs exclusively on Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Sportsman Channel.
