#WyoStrong: Dubois Navy veteran donates antelope tag to “Hunting With Heroes;” Cheyenne Navy veteran harvests buck

    #WyoStrong stories, brought to you by Wyoming Community Bank, highlight Wyoming perseverance, ingenuity, creativity and resilience.

    The second annual Mike Brown Memorial Antelope Hunt again teamed up with “Hunting with Heroes” again this year.

    Hunting with Heroes is a non-profit that helps disabled veterans enjoy the Wyoming outdoors. One of the ways donors help the group is by donating their hunting tags, which is exactly what Dubois resident Rick Lee did.


    Lee’s tag went to good use, as it was obtained by Navy veteran Michelle Jones of Cheyenne. Jones served in the Navy from 1989-1996, and was stationed on the USS Dixon, USS Mekee, and the SIMA San Diego. She spent much of her career working on nuclear submarines and currently works as a Veterans Services officer at the American Legion in Cheyenne. Her husband Travis is also a Navy veteran, together they have 3 children and 3 grandchildren.

    It also should be noted, that donor Rick Lee, is a 21-year Navy veteran himself.

    Jones was able to harvest a nice looking buck during the hunt (pictured above.)

    The hunt honors Mike Brown, an avid sportsman who loved hunting antelope. His family works with Hunting with Heroes and helps provide opportunities for wounded veterans in his memory.


    Brown’s sons Bill and Cody, as well as brother Charlie helped guide the hunt.
