SPRINGFIELD - Illinois Department of Natural Resources officials say eight disabled soldiers and veterans will receive an all-expenses-paid shopping trip in preparation of a special annual hunt.

IDNR officials say the participants will travel to Scheels in Springfield on November 3 to purchase clothes, knives, boots, and other pieces of equipment for this year's "Healing Outside of a Hospital Deer Hunt for Heroes."  The deer hunt is organized by Illinois Conservation Police Officer Matt Graden.
