ATO Is Proud to Sponsor Our Wounded Warriors Hunt For Heroes

We Began in 2011 and have Sponsored over 100 Military Heroes through Our Dec. 2018 Hunt For Heroes.

We invite you to view all the Fun and Excitement from these past Eight  Annual Hunts. It is so Rewarding to see these Heroes in Action and Know We Honored Their Service and Sacrifices, and Helped Make this small Contribution in Their Lives.

It's not only our Honor for AMPOL  to Sponsor the first three 'Hunts' and the ATO Zeta Mu Alumni Association to pick up the Sponsorship of these 'Hunts' for these Warriors, but a Privilege to Demonstrate our Gratitude for Their Service. We Want Them to Know How Much We Appreciate Their Dedication in the Defense of Our Country against all Enemies, Both Foreign and Domestic. 

These Warriors are the Point of the Spear, They Keep Us Safe and They Make the Ultimate Sacrifice When Duty Calls... May God Bless These Warriors and May God Bless America.

Want to Sponsor One of These Warriors, contact Pete 'Kutch' Kucera or Colonel Charlie Adams.


Thanks To Those Special People Who Make These Hunts Possible

The Annual Hunt For Heroes Gracious, Generous, and Welcoming Hosts • Necia & George Yax


Since 2011 George and Necia have hosted the annual Hunt For Heroes. They have provided the Black Bucks for every hunt, and complete 'Resort Accommodations' for the over 100 Wounded Warriors who have participated annually. In addition, the Yax's also Host the Annual Texas ATO Zeta Mu Reunion, which has seen over 1,000 ATO Brothers and Guests since the First Reunion in 1998. They just don't make any more Special People than Necia and George Yax. The ATO's, Guests and All the Wounded Warriors who have enjoyed their Hospitality over the years say... Necia and George, A Big Texas 'Thank You'.

The Man Who Coordiantes This Salute for Our Wounded Warriors, Retired Marine Colonel Charlie Adams


The "Colonel" as he is affectionally known by the Brotherhood of ATO, and "Sir" by the Troops he Commanded throughout his career. He, the Sponsors, and Hundreds of  Volunteers are responsible for these Wonderful Hunt For Heroes. "Marine Tough as he was, he is one of the Nicest and Warm-Hearted Military Men you will ever have the Privilege of knowing." Just some of Charlie's 'Duties' are; Meet with Each Warrior, Plan the Event, Coordinate  Dates, Availability and Travel, and Secure Sponsorships. Always mindful Safety Comes First, and aside a few Fire Ant Bites, every Hunt has been Successful.

The Spectacular Trails End Ranch is the Perfect Place to Hold Our Annual Hunt For Heroes


The over 10,000 acres of the Original Trails End Ranch is a perfect location for the Annual Hunt For Heroes. The Beauty of Trails End Ranch is Legendary, Memorable, and almost beyond description. It offers these Warriors not only the opportunity for a super hunt, but many places to just relax and reflect on the beauty that surrounds them. There are hundreds and hundreds of Exotic Animals from Africa, Egypt, China, Japan, Australia, Ethiopia, and many other Countries around the World, roaming freely about the ranch. In addition George and Necia see to it that the Hundreds of Black Bucks are ever present for these Hunts.
