  • WISH LIST | hitw

    HOUSE IN THE WOODS WISH LIST THANK YOU for your interest in supporting House in the Woods and the American Heroes we serve. ​ Many individuals have indicated a willingness to support the mission by way of purchasing things needed at the lodge, or for particular retreats planned. ​ Here you'll find a list of a few of the items on our Wish List which will improve the experience for our military men and women, and also the program as a whole. ​ With your help we can continue offering healing retreats to the men and women that have served and sacrificed so much for our freedom! ​ Perhaps you have contacts who may be able to assist, are willing to organize a fundraiser, or simply can spread the word. We appreciate any and all willingness to support our organization with the greater mission in mind - HELPING SAVE LIVES. ​ If you have any questions please reach out to us! ​ THANK YOU for your continued support. ​ ​ ​ TRUCK A few important parts of a quality retreat are lodge maintenance, plowing, pre-season baiting, trail clean up, baiting, moving our guests around from the lodge to activities, transit back and forth to the woods on hunts, packing out harvests (bear, deer, moose), and on occasion needing a wench to remove large animals from the woods. Our ideal truck for functionality on all of these uses might be something along the lines of a GMC 3/4 ton, with V Plow, winch and an extended bed. We are reaching out directly to manufacturers as well. WINCH We are often in need of a winch to remove large animals from the woods. BINOCULARS A combat-wounded veteran will be on a very special moose hunt with us this fall in northern Maine and we are in Need of 2 pairs of high quality binoculars. THERMAL SCOPE We were introduced to thermal rifle scopes through another organization and have come to the realization that having a thermal scope on hand for night time tracking purposes would be very helpful. When we have veterans on hunts we are often out at night tracking bear, moose, deer, etc. and now that we know their capability it would take the success and safety rate to a whole new level. ​ Additionally, we may have the opportunity to add nighttime retreats in the future and this would be a necessity for those types of events. ​ We are reaching out to manufacturers directly as well in pursuit of a donation. ​ EXAMPLE PRODUCT: Pulsar trail xp38 ​ ​ WALL TENT ​ COTS to use in Wall Tent We are blessed to have 1 conex box, which we use to store bear bait. ​ We have been blessed with equipment for many types of outdoor activities at the lodge, which means we also need to store it all safely. ​ Another conex box would be ideal as we can build shelving inside and keep things safe and dry. ​ The last thing we want is to have equipment damaged because of improper storage. ​ Perhaps you know a company who may be willing to make a donation to our organization. If so, please share further information. ​ Thank you!
