Empowered Dream Hunts Inc. was very busy and involved with sharing time and gifts with many individuals and groups in 2021. In January, Tommy Namore, from Oshkosh, WI utilized one of the Empowered Dream Hunts Inc. trailers to pick up his bear mount. He harvested the bear with Dick Verbsky’s Disadvantaged Adventures in Winter, WI in 2019. Empowered Dream Hunts Inc. helped Fishin For a Mission with a raffle of an ice shack to raise funds for a local family that has a child with cancer. This family was given funds from this raffle in March. Also, during Fishin For a Mission’s fishing tournament, Empowered Dream Hunts Inc. provided the use of Action Trackchairs to assist people to get out on the ice and fish during the tournament.
March through June, was very active. Joe Ramsey, Founder/President of Empowered
Dream Hunts Inc. assisted multiple turkey hunters of various ages and abilities. Action TrackChairs, blinds, and trailers were loaned out to assist individuals to enjoy their hunt for the elusive turkeys. A great time was had by all. In June, Empowered Dream Hunts Inc. received a large donation of gently used hunting clothing. Over the course of the summer and into late fall, this hunting clothing was able to be shared with many Veterans, youth, and outdoor enthusiasts.
Empowered Dream Hunts Inc. was out and about quite a bit in June and July. At the
Veterans’s Weekly Cup of Coffee at Denny’s in Rothschild, Joe Ramsey shared opportunities available through Empowered Dream Hunts Inc., including the use of Action Track Chairs, hunting equipment, and adventures available on properties near Central Wisconsin. Joe Ramsey also had the opportunity to present the “Pen of Honor” to a WWII Veteran. The creator of the “Pen of Honor '' wishes to remain anonymous. The creator builds the bullet pens and donates them in pen sized gun cases to honor Central Wisconsin Veterans. Joe Ramsey assists in presenting them to deserving Veterans. Joey Ramsey (Freshman at Mosinee High School) and Luke Anderson (graduate of Wausau West High School and present Marion Military Institute student) also participated in the presentation of the special “Pens of Honor.”
Empowered Dream Hunts Inc. participated in the 4th of July festivities in Mosinee, WI, including the parade and helping with the petting zoo at River Park. Later in July, Empowered Dream Hunts Inc. traveled to Winneconne, WI to participate in the Sovereign State Day Parade. A Veteran (using an Action Trackchair) and his son joined Joey and Joe Ramsey on the journey through the parade. Another adventure that the Action Trackchair was involved in during the summer, encompassed the Annual Summer Boy Scout Camp by Rhinelander, WI. Luke Anderson surprised his Boy Scout Leader, who is in a wheelchair, with the Action Trackchair. This piece of equipment helped the Boy Scout Leader get around on the camp grounds so much easier, especially when it came to getting through mud, branches, and rough terrain.
Empowered Dream Hunts Inc. Annual Banquet in August brought lots of amazing people together. So many people gave of their time and talents to make the banquet one to return to. Thank you to those who sponsored, donated, volunteered, or participated in this event. This fundraiser banquet funds adventures for future recipients.
Bill Bishop Sr. from New London, WI was Empowered Dream Hunts Inc. first recipient for fall 2021. Mr. Bishop Sr. is an Army National Guard Veteran and a Retired Police Chief. At the end of August, he went to Wilderness Whitetails and had the opportunity to harvest a beautiful deer in full velvet with his wife, son and grandson. Mr. Bishop Sr. was also given a special quilt made by a lady who makes lap quilts for Veterans. This was a very special experience for the Bishop family, as memories were made, and a “one last time” experience was had. These are Bill Jr. 's and Mr. Bishop Sr.’s words, “Dad said, first and utmost it was a huge surprise and he feels very honored to know that he is the very first to receive such a thoughtful and beautiful gift. The person that made the quilt is unbelievably a very talented and detailed person. She did an
AMAZING job. We love the patch on the back. With the help of God and the luck of a deer
coming out in the middle of a thunderstorm I was able to get my deer on the date that is on the back of the quilt. The deer has been named: Rain Deer. Thank you so much we love it and God bless you. Bill Bishop Sr. and Virginia.”
Scott Hunter from Luck, WI was Empowered Dream Hunts Inc. second recipient for
2021. Mr. Hunter is an E2 Fireman Apprentice in the US Navy from 1981-1984. He was on the aircraft carrier, USS Kitty Hawk. This is Mr. Hunter’s story, “My family and I arrived at the Wilderness Whitetail hunting preserve in Rosholt, Wisconsin the afternoon of September 17. We were extremely impressed by the welcome and the accommodations that were provided for us. Greg Flees, one of the owners and my guide Hunter O’Connor explained how the hunt would work. After getting settled in, Hunter took my brother, Tom, and I out to the stand I would be hunting out of. During the hunt, we saw several deer and I was able to harvest a nice 8 point, mature typical buck which scored 159 and 5/8. I was thrilled beyond words. During my stay that weekend, I was able to spend quality time with many members of my family and friends. We had a wild game feed on Saturday night which is a hunting camp tradition in our family. It was great to be able to hunt with family again and brought back memories of former hunts at our family hunting camp. On Saturday Joe brought the Action Trackchair to the ranch for me to try out. I found it to be very useful for the outdoors such as going through cornfields and up and
down embankments. This is a great asset for the Empowered Dream Hunt organization. I want to thank Greg and Hunter of Wilderness Whitetail for their help in getting me back in the woods again and for a successful hunt. Also a big thank you to Joe Ramsey of Empowered Dream Hunts and his family. A special thanks to his son Leo for the awesome cheesecake that he made for the game feed. This was an opportunity I will never forget.”
Ethan Herman, Mosinee, WI was Empowered Dream Hunts Inc. third recipient for
2021. Ethan was able to harvest his whitetail buck on the last day of September 2021 at
Whitetails Of A Lifetime. After 5 nights of hard hunting, Ethan has his venison and a story
to tell. He was able to enjoy his hunt with his dad, Dave Matis (guide), Joe Ramsey, Don
Winter (camera man), and Randy Brown (camera Man). It was great to see Ethan’s smile!
Levi Glaze was the fourth recipient selected to have a hunt of a lifetime. Levi is the
son of Deputy Dan Glaze, Rusk County Sheriff's Office, WI, End of Watch Oct. 29, 2016.
Levi was only 5 years old when his dad was tragically killed in the line of duty. Levi's mom
Sarah said, "I think the thing his dad was most excited about was sharing his love of all
things hunting and outdoors with his son. He always said some of his favorite memories
were of the night before opening day, when his family would gather. While he is not here to see it, it would bring him great joy to know that Levi has that love for hunting. The end of October is a hard time for our family, but it is also the time when his dad had his best
hunting experience. On Halloween night, nearly 20 years ago, Levi’s dad shot his biggest
deer. What a better time to honor his dad, and get the deer of a lifetime, than the end of
October. Levi is beyond excited about this opportunity! This is an opportunity of a lifetime, with memories that will last just as long."– Sarah Glaze. Levi harvested a beautiful whitetail buck from Whitetails of a Lifetime on October 28th. The Weiland family joined in with this hunt in support of Sarah and Levi Glaze. Not only was Deputy Dan Glaze honored and remembered through this experience, Levi was able to carry on with an activity his dad would have done with him. This was a very special time for the Glaze family.
In November, Empowered Dream Hunts Inc. and a Veteran from Northwoods Post

Portage, WI. I39 Supply shared, “Thanks again to EVERYONE who helped, attended,
donated, and supported our 5th annual Deer Camp Breakfast! We had close to 800 people join us and the rough amount of donations for Empowered Dream Hunts Inc. is absolutely incredible.” We are so appreciative of those out there who are supportive of our mission to help everyone that we can get outside and enjoy God’s Creation. Thank you to all who donated!
