The Beaver State Podcast Episode 116: Veterans in the Outdoors

November 10, 2022

Brandon Harper and Justin Stubbs are U.S. Marines. They're veterans who've decided to work in the world of hunting and fishing education at ODFW, which has put them in a unique position to help other Oregon veterans who don't have a lot of resources available to them due to the lack of military installations in Oregon. By working with groups like Project Healing Waters, Wounded Warrior Project, Warfighter Outfitters and The Fallen Outdoors, Harper and Stubbs have provided many opportunities for veterans to connect with other veterans while picking up new skills related to hunting and fishing.
