This is the 24th annual Celebrity Hunt which benefits Abilene's DRI (Disability Resources Inc.) organization. For 22 years the hunt was known as Big Country Celebrity Quail Hunt. However, with a declining quail population the hunt takes in more than just quail these days.

There will be morning and afternoon hunts of quail and chukar, sporting clays, pigeon shoot, a GNAT Shoot (radio-controlled airplanes loaded with explosive charges), a dinner and auction. Over the last 23 years the hunt has raised over $2.5 million to help DRI continue it's mission of providing residential care, vocational training, and recreational activities for developmentally challenged persons in a Christian environment.

You will hunt along side celebrities such as actor Steve Kanaly (Dallas), actress Anne Lockhart (Battlestar Galactica), NFL's David Lutz, and artists Michael Collins and Jimmy Partee just to name a few.
