First-Time Programs

Our first-time Fishing Experiences (FX) are the beginning of a better future for many post-9/11 combat veterans and their caregivers. FX’s are completely free to participants and include travel to Quiet Waters Ranch in Montana, as well as gifted equipment for participants to take home with them. Participants join a group of up to 6 veterans or caregivers who are ready to reflect on their service, find community in the WQW family and discover a sense of purpose.

Hunt for Purpose

Hunt for Purpose is an intensive, 6 month pursuit to plan, prepare for and execute a successful archery elk hunt in Montana’s backcountry. Along the way, participants will learn the basics of elk hunting and backcountry survival, improve their physical fitness, and work alongside fellow Warriors and loved ones toward a common goal.
