A more appropiate name for this category would be “Physically Challenged Hunters” “Disabled Hunters” suggests that we can not hunt because of disabilty. Just take a look at the Physically Challenged Bowhunters of America.October 17, 2013 at 10:07 pm #7106

I too am disabled and I get out and hunt every chance I get. I deal with my physical challenges and have adapted my hunting style. DISabled suggests we are not able. We are able, just challenged. It has nothing to do with political correctness. I don’t know anyone less political correct than I am.
Everyday for the last 24 years people tell me “you can’t do that, you are disabled.” No, I am not DISabled, I am challenged. It may take me longer, or maybe I can’t do it as well as you can but don’t tell me I can’t do it because I am disabled.October 18, 2013 at 9:48 am #7127

I do understand were jparthemore is comeing from. Disabled, means unable! In ’86, I broke both legs, mashing both knees. 8 surgerys and 2years of theropy, I was determined 100% disabled—-BS! My thinkin’ is that I will not be Disabled! 2 years later, I was back to work, in the woods as a logger. Couldn’t do as I wish I could–but defiantly, not disabled. In ’97, I had another nasty accident, that shattered my right arm, length ways, broke the shoulder into 3 pieces, drove the color bone straight down, tore rotor cuff and muscles. 5 more durn surgerys later, I was once again determined to be 100% disabled. Once again–BS! I went back to work, only for workmans compisation to determine me uninsurable! No biggy, even tho I was 66 at the time, I applied to the state, under their handicapped/displaced logger program, and got hired. For the past 13 years, I’ve walked up and down the docks, checkin’ fishermens bag limits. NO, I AM NOT DISABLED! I love to work, and I hope to be working when I die!
With determination, we can ALMOST always do what we make up our minds to do. I still beat the bush huntin’, my only problem, which is a embarrassment to me, once I get a deer down/gutted, I can’t pack it out! I can slowly drag it out, but my wife is impatient, and normaly throws it over her shoulder and packs it out!
