Veterans Outdoor World (VOW) was founded in 2012 by disabled veteran Lance Hoefs.  His vision is to make sure any disabled veteran that wants to get out into the outdoors to hunt, fish, hike, or just commune with nature is able to do so.

VOW is a 100% volunteer organization and with the help of fellow veterans and non-veteran volunteers, many veterans have benefitted from Lance’s vision.

Since the organizations beginning back in 2012, over hundreds of veterans, that wouldn’t have otherwise had the opportunity, have hunted deer, turkey, grouse, coyote, duck and goose.

VOW has also given over 1,000 veterans and their families an opportunity to go fishing, both open water and ice.
