"Venado Macho" was formed in 1995 by a small town taxidermy and hunting retail family business to be a deer hunting contest in the state of Texas held at the Freer Deer Camp in Freer, Texas.
Venado Macho Inc. has since evolved into a Qualified 501(C)(3)Non Profit Organization, now called Wounded Hero's of America, Supporting Wounded Hero's. The same family that gave it it's roots along with their Board of Directors still operate it in Freer, Texas.
In 2010 the organization started supporting Wounded Soldiers, after a friend's son returned from the Iraq War with a traumatic brain injury. Discovering that this Hero would have to have 24 hour care and special equipment the Freer Deer Camp changed the focus of the Venado Macho Deer Contest, to give back to our Wounded Vets and to become a 501 (c)(3) Charity Organization.
One of our largest fund raising events for Wounded Hero's of America each year is the Venado Macho hunting contest. Every hunter that enters is doing so to help a Hero. Funds are also raised throughout the year with different raffles. Our single focus is to give back to our Wounded Hero's that have given so much of themselves.
The Largest Fundraising Event is held in April of each year, the Wounded Hero's of America / Venado Macho Banquet. Here is where all that have given to the Organization are invited to come. This gives them an opportunity to meet our Hero(s) for the year, along with their families, as well as mingle with others that have given. Those who won something in the contest are awarded for their trophies that were taken and all are served a Fish Fry Dinner and enjoy some Live Music. Fund raising is continued during the banquet with Raffles, Live and Silent Auctions.
Funds raised during the year, after expenditures are paid, are used to help our Hero(s) with a specific need and to help provide fishing/hunting trips for other Wounded Hero's. There are no paid salaries to any of the Officers or Directors involved with Wounded Hero's of America, all volunteer their time and work.
Vendao Macho, the Deer Contest and Wounded Hero's of America are always looking for and in need of new Corporate Sponsors, Independent Business Sponsors, Ranches and Individual Sponsorship.
