Mission

Cimarron Outdoors is a nonprofit organization committed to inspiring individuals with physical limitations through Christian fellowship, love of nature, and God's gifts to mankind, while encouraging, empowering, and elevating each man, woman, or child with specialized considerations for their individual needs to ensure safety and fun for all in the great outdoors. As an amputee myself since the age of thirteen, I know firsthand many of the challenges mobility impaired individuals encounter in daily life, as well as in recreational activities. Although, I am blessed and have overcome my personal challenges with minimal limitations, others are not as fortunate as myself.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Empower individuals who are mobility impaired, challenged, or have special needs to show they have value and can continue to live life. We provide a safe environment for them to fellowship, hunt, work, and commune with God.

We will provide a safe environment for hunter by building ground blinds that they can easily access or elevated blinds with ramps for them to get into. The blinds will be placed in easy to access areas that will still provide great hunting opportunities to those who use them.

In order to provide the blinds and areas we have work days throughout the year to prepare the land for hunting and blinds to put out. These work days are open to everyone and we offer opportunities for everyone to participate in them. These days range from building the blinds in an clean air conditioned environment to going into the great outdoors on golf carts and accessible ATVs to clear trails and areas or plant food plots for the blinds.

Volunteers can also provide food for the hunters and other volunteers before and between hunts or during work day events which can be very rewarding to individuals and those who partake of the meal.

Between hunts and during meals we also offer fellowship and discipleship opportunities. Our main lodge has an air conditioned environment with plenty of chairs and seating to relax and chat in or delve into the Bible and share God's word with others.

We have seasoned hunters who know how deer behave and their travel patterns who determine where blinds are placed, trails are cut, and food plots are planted. For the building process we have individuals with woodworking backgrounds and engineering practices who design the blinds and plan them out for assembly.

So far we have served many individuals over the past few years and received glowing reviews and commendations from all of them.
