A local, rapidly growing non-profit organization, Trinity Outdoors Disabled Adventures, LLC, got the hunting season started off with a day of alligator hunting near New Roads. 

     The organization was able to reward two children with the hunt –  Justin Kramer from Pierre Part, who has a form of Autism and also Scoliosis and Lakeyn Johnson, from Jennings, who has Down syndrome.

     Kramer and Johnson took to the swamps like seasoned pros, getting tags filled rather quickly. The two were able to participate in all aspects of the gator hunt, all the way to delivering the catch to market.

     The Bayou Branch of Trinity Outdoors Disabled Adventures said they would like to thank all who made the day possible, by supporting, volunteering or helping to line up the recipients.

     Next up for the organization is the fourth annual Benefit on the Bayou – a wild game cook-off and Bayou Blowout car, truck and bike show, held Sept. 19 at No Problem Raceway Park, Belle Rose.

     The event will feature live music, a live auction, car, truch and bike show – hosted by Toxic Whipz, Crank it Up contest – hosted by Brutal Sounds, and a seafood and wild game cook-off.

     For sponsorship or donation information, Joey Simoneaux, (225) 323-1670, Warren Coupel, (985) 992-0856 or Steve Cavalier, (225) 978-1865.

     Proceeds from the event will go to the Trinity Outdoors Disabled Adventures Bayou Branch, to help fund outdoor trips and programs in Southeast Louisiana for disabled individuals and wounded veterans.
