MONETARY DONATIONS BEING ACCEPTED.
An important part of a quality retreat is food preparation and cooking. We are currently using a small gas grill, which makes it difficult to manage grilling food for a large number of people. Our ideal grill would be something along these lines but certainly, need not be this pricey... just an example of the size we're looking at.
We are reaching out directly to companies in search of grill donation as well.
EXAMPLE PRODUCT: Backyard Pro C3H860DEL 60" STAINLESS STEEL GAS GRILL
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.
A good comfortable, quiet chair is critical for a pleasant & successful hunting experience.
Available at Cabelas, we are looking specifically for a heavy duty chair that will hold 400+ lbs.
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.

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.
GENERATOR for LODGE
As you know living in rural Maine power outages are a common issue. With a full load of retreats planned for the lodge (and freezers full of food) it's time to get a generator.
We're exploring who we might meet with to discuss the potential for assistance with a fundraiser, discount or donation to aide in purchasing a new generator.
