Montana Ranch Owner Offers Elk Hunts to Disabled Vets

Just a few weeks ago, Florida native David Lee purchased a 30,000-acre ranch in eastern Montana that boasts some of the best elk hunting in the state. He was apparently planning to use it for his own purposes, until something struck him. "My wife and I were over at the River City Grill and I was reading the newspaper about one of the guys locally who had fallen in Iraq," Lee told The Missoulan. "Whether you agree with this war or not, these guys have put it all on the line for us, and you've got to feel for that. I figured somebody ought to do something for them."

Lee will offer archery hunts this fall for disabled vets.

“Even for someone who's lost a leg, here's a place where they don't have to chase the elk, the elk will walk by them,” he said. “It's a great opportunity to get a trophy-class animal.”
