Wheelchair accessible hunting is growing in popularity among men and women hunting enthusiasts. Special wheelchairs and adaptive equipment, recreational clubs, and other nonprofit organizations for the disabled are paving the way for greater participation in the sport.
In addition, state regulations that accommodate the needs of people with physical challenges are helping to make the great outdoors more accessible than ever.
If you are interested in hunting and are trying to determine whether it is a good fit for you, here are some tips and questions to consider:
To learn more about accessible hunting options in your area, the Internet is a great resource. There you’ll find links to laws and permits that affect the physically challenged on a state-by-state basis.
You’ll also find a host of clubs and organizations dedicated to making wheelchair hunting an enjoyable experience. For example, Accessible Canadian Adventures (ACA) designs, coordinates and arranges hunting, fishing and wildlife photography adventures specifically for disabled sportsmen and women.
