RANDLEMAN, N.C. -- Hunting is a way of life in North Carolina, and a local organization is helping hunters, taken away from the sport they love, get back onto the range. 

The Sportsmen for Christ at Glenola Baptist Church are hosting more than a dozen hunters this weekend who have disabilities, terminal illnesses, or who were injured in the line of duty. 

Hunters will spend their weekend with volunteers, hunting deer across the Piedmont. They'll also get time to eat, win other hunting trips, and spend time with fellow hunters who share their interest in the sport. 

This program isn't just meant to help these hunters get another chance to hunt, it also gives back to the community. Volunteers will take the meat from any deer killed this weekend and send it to local shelters and food pantries. 

WFMY News 2's Patrick Wright spent the day with hunters, like Army Specialist Jeremy Young who was shot 12 times by an Afghan Army soldier last July.
