Melbourne Beach, FL -(AmmoLand.com)- The Outdoor Adventure Conservation Fund (OACF) announces the launch of its new Website, www.oacfund.org.

The site details all essential information about the OACF, including its mission, activities, Board members and partners who are helping the Fund get more people outdoors to enjoy and benefit from participation in the traditional outdoors sports and activities.

The OACF Mission: The Outdoor Adventure Conservation Fund (OACF) connects people with the outdoors and encourages their active participation through hunting, fishing, shooting, camping, hiking and other traditional outdoor activities and pursuits. OACF provides grants that support events, programs, activities and other efforts by like-minded groups, organizations, agencies, companies and other entities that create and conduct such activities in a safe, positive environment and, overall, seek to develop a caring conservation ethic for the outdoors.

Founder and President, Chris Chaffin, indicated that the Fund’s mission encompasses all the traditional outdoor activities but their early focus has been on helping injured and wounded military veterans.

“Our first two events have been all-expenses-paid fishing events out of the Miami (FL) Marina, with some of the very best boats and captains in south Florida. We’ve worked with other veteran’s assistance organizations to take these deserving heroes out for a day of fishing they’ll always remember.”

Chaffin said the OACF events help the veterans gain confidence in their abilities, let them network with their fellow servicemen and –women, and put their everyday issues aside for a day or two.

“Experience has shown that our vets truly benefit from participating in outdoor activities like fishing, hunting, shooting and others. In our small, humble way, we’re trying to say thank you to all of them who served and sacrificed for all of us.”

He cited, as an example, one of the soldiers who was wounded in the Ft. Hood shooting.

“This young guy, had limited ability to move his left arm and leg due to his injuries, but he caught the first sailfish of our event and was grinning ear-to-ear for the next day and a half he was with us. We crowned him the 2015 OACF Sailfish King.”

Another vet said his trip allowed him to cross off “No. 8” on his bucket list.

OACF plans to continue the Miami event as long as funds permit, and “…if we can generate additional funding and supporters, we plan to expand to freshwater fishing, as well as some hunting and shooting activities” Chaffin summarized.

He encouraged anyone looking for a way to thank our veterans and promote the healthy, sustaining and enriching outdoor lifestyle for veterans and others to look at the new Website and consider how they might lend a helping hand.
