BLAND COUNTY (WVVA) -- Veterans from different branches of service and various ages are in Bland County this weekend for the annual Wounded Warrior Turkey Hunt.

The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries Law Enforcement Division is sponsoring the "3rd Annual Virginia Wounded Warriors Program Spring Turkey Hunt 2013" event. This year they are sponsoring 8 wounded veterans from Southwest Virginia that stepped up to the call of duty during our most recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Each of these veterans is assigned an experienced hunter/guide and caller to assist them during this event. These guides are experienced hunters representing the "National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) Bland and Grayson County Chapters of Virginia, members of the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries Law Enforcement Division, and local hunters.

The hunt itself occurs throughout Bland County on land being donated for the event. Transportation in the field during the event and after hours is provided by the many volunteers such as wives, family members and friends.
