The Trinity Oaks Purple Heart Heroes Celebration Hunt

In November of 2020, Americana Outdoors had the privilege of covering Trinity Oaks’ Purple Heart Heroes Celebration Hunt, sponsored by Saulsbury. This event honored Purple Heart veterans from world war two, Korea, Vietnam, and the Gulf Wars. Trinity Oaks is a Texas based, non profit organization founded on the premise that participation in the outdoors is a powerful and fundamentally life-changing experience, and their mission is to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others through the use of hunting, fishing, and outdoor activities. Our journey today brings us to their Thumbtack Ranch location.  While staying on this expansive two thousand acre plot of land, not only will our veterans get to hunt, but they will also have the chance to partake in some relaxing fishing over a pond, hit up the shooting range, and enjoy a host of other activities. Bringing our service men to Trinity Oaks for this hunting experience is the epitome of what it means to get out and enjoy the great outdoors, and gives our veterans an opportunity to connect with others who have endured similar circumstances throughout their careers in service to our country. We would like to thank Trinity Oaks for hosting this incredible hunt, and extend a sincere thank you to the brave men and women who have donned the uniform to protect and serve our country.  If you know a veteran who would benefit from participating in one of Trinity Oaks’ many programs geared towards making a difference in a veteran’s life, visit their website at
