Personalized Outdoor Experiences

The Veterans Afield Foundation (VAF) accomplishes its mission to assist in the reintegration and healing process of combat veterans, Gold Star families, and first responders by offering personalized hunting and fishing programs that make a difference at a critical moment in their lives.

Cohort sizes are small to encourage active participation, team bonding, and to ensure each participant gets the one-on-one support they need to begin the healing process. To learn more about our referral-based selection process, contact us.

Adaptive & Inclusive

We welcome participants of all abilities and experience. Adaptive equipment such as track chairs, retrofit electric side-by-side 4x4s, and eye-scope adapters help combat-wounded and physically disabled veterans and first responders access a wide range of outdoor activities.

VAF provides expert guides for each hunt and covers licenses, fees, food, lodging, non-local transportation, and meat processing fees (if applicable). We follow all local game laws and regulations.

From black bear to moose to goose, we do it all. Each hunt offers the opportunity for connection and bonding. Small group sizes — four to six participants — nurture the beginnings of life-long friendships and build the foundation for an ongoing support network.

Come for the fish, leave with a sustaining hobby that will last a lifetime. Participants may build and finish custom rods or master the art of fly tying. No matter what, they’ll spend peaceful hours on the water, returning to camp with a mess of fish to clean for dinner.

VAF Outdoor Experiences

Whether veteran hunters, seasoned fishermen, or first-timers, we welcome all participants.

Many of our hunting trips and fishing occur annually, others are dependent upon funding. Our outdoor experiences are held all over the country, from Maine to Alaska to Texas. To learn more about our upcoming events or to sponsor a hunt, email us at
