2017 PDR Deer Hunt

In mid September for the past nine years the PDR group, an independent, non-profit organization, has hosted an all expenses paid Whitetail deer hunt exclusively for physically disabled adolescents..  The hunt is held in Clark, South Dakota but the hunters have come from all over the Midwest.  There have been some wonderful life time memories made at the annual PDR Hunt.  But, your help this year is requested to provide more treasured memories for qualified candidates and their parent or guardian. 
If you would post the invitation on your website or events calendars it would be appreciated.  A follow up from the 2017 Hunt with photographs will be provided to your media outlet, for any local tie-ins that occur.  Direct any questions you have to PDR Hunt founder, Dean Rasmussen at 605-233-0331.   Your news department can also contact him regarding a story about the PDR Hunt.  
By the way, the letters P.D.R. are the initials of Dean’s late grandchild. who he was never able to hunt with.  Again, this is a free, guided deer hunt, on private ground, that land owners in Clark, SD conduct.  It is staffed 100% by volunteers and has been for nearly a decade.   Only a few of the dozen slots remain open for the 2017 Hunt and the information about this outdoor adventure needs to get to families of prospective hunters.





PDR Hunt 2016 by Gary Howey

“It’s not about the harvesting of a deer as much as telling the story each kid has of overcoming significant limitations”.

  Clark, S.D. We at Outdoorsmen Adventures television  had the privilege to send our film crew to Clark, South Dakota in September to film at the ninth annual PDR Disabled Youth Deer Hunt.

  Dean Rasmussen, Clark, S.D. developed the hunt honoring his grandson Payton Dean Rasmussen whose life was taken by spinal meningitis in 1999.

  Dean says that the hunt would not have gotten off the ground without the support from many people, including landowners, businesses and agencies.  Sponsored events includes, all arrangements, food, overnight accommodations, rifle, ammunition, deer stands, and transportation to and from the field, all of which are provided to the hunters at no cost.  

  The P.D.R. Youth Hunt allows young children with disabilities to enjoy a carefree weekend of hunting where friends and memories are made.

  The celebration begins the afternoon before when the hunters get an opportunity to meet and to have an opportunity to check out and zero their weapons at the shooting range set-up at the Day Betterment Lodge outside of Clark, S.D. followed by a barbecue dinner. 

  Rasmussen indicated, “Parents and others tell them the biggest reason kids like to come isn’t always because of the hunting experience, although that’s special to them, what they really enjoy is being accepted as they are. For this one weekend, the kids feel like any other kid. The community of Clark is a special place.”
