McCOY -- The fourth annual Dewees Purple Heart Cast & Blast dove hunt was held Oct. 6 at the Las Cortes Creek Ranch in McCoy. Calvin Albert, Dennis Chavez, and Ron Branyon, along with friends and sponsors, honored about 15 wounded warriors and their families with a day of food, friendship, dove hunting, fishing, and skeet shooting.

The Rev. Kelly Tankersley of the Poth Lutheran Church blessed the food, and then Albert started the meeting by asking the vets to introduce themselves. There were vets of every age present, including some from the Vietnam War. Fishing rods were distributed to those who wanted to fish, skeet shooting was enjoyed by most, and those with licenses to hunt did so.

Volunteers were present to help out in any way needed, and their services were greatly appreciated, and Justin and Stacie Jenschke provided the dove hunt property. There was a noon meal of hamburgers and hot dogs, and a fantastic supper included rib-eyes with all the fixings. A drawing was held and many gifts were provided to the vets and their families.

Sponsors of this year’s annual event included Manning Safety Services Inc. of Jourdanton, Dittmar Lumber in Floresville, Wilson County Meat Market in La Vernia, Ray and Sherrie Nichols, Doug and Gale Wilde, Carl and Nelda Hoefelmeyer, Alton and Carole Hierholzer, Denise Stavinoha, and Calvin and Georgia Albert.

The event organizers would like to thank all of these sponsors and everyone who helped make the event a success for these very deserving veterans.
