Kevin McFarland - Founder & President

Grew up in Melba, ID hunting and fishing with my grandpa. Joined the National Guard in 2003 then deployed to Kirkuk, Iraq in 2005 and Baghdad, Iraq in 2010. I want to help other veterans overcome and deal with the burdens of PTSD the best way I know how, in the outdoors.

 I absolutely thrive on the outdoors. I hunt, fly fish and trap. I'm also the co-owner of a wildlife control business.  I served in the Army from 1998-2006. When I got out I experienced severe depression and suffered from PTSD. I have found that getting in the outdoors helps lower the anxiety. I want to help other veterans that have similar issues find peace and the great doors can do that.

Daniel Figini

Bio- Active duty Army for 8 years as a Scout, relocated to Idaho once I got out in 2016. I like to spend every chance I get enjoying God's country, whether it's hunting, fishing, or shooting. I find spending time in the outdoors to be therapeutic, and having the opportunity to help other veterans get out and have these experiences and make memories is becoming a passion of mine. I am looking forward to creating friendships and meeting fellow brothers and sisters in arms through this organization.

Grew up in Melba, Idaho.  I spend my free time hunting and fishing which is what lead me to start helping out as much as I could with IBV, to be someone to help find locations for get togethers, and also to be there for anyone to talk too and open up too!
