helping disabled hunters


Recommended Posts

i hope this isn't a touchy subject and i mean all of this with a kind heart, so here goes.........

i have an area where i hunt that is very hunter, or handicap hunter friendly. my hunting partners and myself would like to open this spot to those who might have a difficult time reaching most places.

my question is, does anyone know of organizations, or people that i can talk to who can get me pointed in the right direction? this spot won't be available this year but i would like extend invitations for next year. any help would be great.

thanks for the help everyone.......loc9

Wow! Great to hear about people offering to help.

I am a disabled hunter/fisherman myself. I took a .22 magnum bullet in the neck when a guy I was hunting with mistook me for a squirrel. Speaking from experience, it's great to meet and hear about people willing to offer their time/land/services to help others get out and enjoy the outdoors. I have a tough time getting out, but luckily, I have friends and family that are willing to help haul my **s out into the woods and fields so I have a chance at something. I'm very appreciative for all the help and I do my best to repay the kindness in any wa that I can. Most disabled hunters feel likewise.

As for your question, Capable Partners is a big helper of the disabled sportsman in MN. They are well organized and have a lot of volunteers. You could also talk to UFFDA (United Foundation For Disabled Archers). See their HSOforum at www.uffdaclub.com

The Rochester Area Disabled Athletics and Recreaction (RADAR) club sponsors hunting and fishing outings also.

If you want to spread the word farther, Buckmasters has a nation-wide network (BADF) for disabled hunting opportunities. The National Wild Turkey Federation also has a big group designated to help disabled sportsmen (and women) called Wheelin' Sportsmen.

Capable Partners is probably the best bet in Minnesota. If you want more info, I'd be happy to send along the contacts that I have run into over the years. You can reach me at [email protected]

Thanks for making this generous offer. The world needs more people like you. smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif

loc9,
I got so caught up in getting you some info that I forgot about the forum that I was on. I am a duck hunting nut, but I had to sell my boat as it was getting too difficult and dangerous for me to be using it. I'm really looking for some land where I would have access to a flyway where I wouldn't have to use a boat. If your land is used for duck hunting, keep me in mind as I would be sick if I couldn't get out and ambush some ducks each year.

Thanks again for your generous offer.

i would be more than happy to take you out on a duck and/or goose hunt corn-killer, but the problem is that i am in arizona until the 19th. not to sound like a selfish a$$ but i don't think i can set much up for hunts this year. next year is a definite though. this area is on private land very near the metro area and a person can be driven right down to where we will hunt. we could either hunt ducks and geese on the lake, or in fields. the lakeshore has good solid ground with good willow cover. its not the greatest spot to hunt but we do get some shooting and like i said, its such a hunter friendly place i think others might enjoy it also.

thank you all for the info......loc9

loc9,
Arizona, huh? Bet it's a lot warmer than here. My thermometer read 8 degrees at my house this morning. Brrrrr. No worries. I'm pretty busy right now too. Got out duck hunting before I sold my boat and killed a few geese in the fields over the weekend so I got my fix. Gearing up for deer hunting in two weeks now, then ice fishing starts coming along...

Let's keep in touch. I'm always up for meeting a new hunting/fishing buddy. Shoot me an email and we'll swap stories.

i was only able to hunt 2 weekends this year, one for goose opener and the other in no. dakota. kind of depressing when im used to going out every weekend. but they were both fun and memorable times for me. i should be getting back to MN about the 20th or 21st and planning on hunting the ducks until the season closes. but ill be home for the entire ice fishing season so im happy about that.

i too am up for making new hunting and fishing buddies so i will keep in touch. thanks corn-killer.......loc9

    • Screw your little toy e-augers and chain saws!  😏  😆          
    • the wife and I took a little drive to Arkansas for one more ride. 
    • I get where your coming from Leech. There are some gray areas and loopholes and they know how to work them. These youtube people they want you to be angry, it all plays right into their revenue.   The thing with these youtubers is they unfortunately  have a mass following and they will tell all their fans to show up at the DNR offices, court house, call the office phones etc. And it just drives up their following, youtube views etc. and the result is just more revenue for the youtube channel and people get sucked right in (myself included). Like I said love him or hate him he's generating significant income by doing it and its like a bad car wreck you just cant look away.    In some cases the DNR getting involved the risk outweighs the reward if you get my drift. look at the crowds that came out for him over a misdemeanor jet ski fine in TN. It looks like its straight out of the movie "Time to kill" lol:   More:  
    • Another reply from the DNR Capt.  Sounds like their a bit afraid to dig in and get what the need to prosecute.   Mr. Beeeped-out  😉 I do want to thank you for your time in researching and sending us the information.  The second video in particular involves the CBoyz near Cormorant Village in Becker County.  If you watch many of their videos they are full of violations.  We have met with the County Attorney’s Office and we have been told that unless we can provide a date/time of the actual event they will decline to prosecute.  We have identified many of the players in these videos but only have a date/time of the video release and not the actual date and time.  We have also made contact with them and taken enforcement action in many of their videos.  They are not afraid to film our officers in action.  In addition the first video was a year or two old if I recall.  I will not disagree that when looking at the video there is areas of concern but unless we can observe the damage and be able to testify in court that the wetland was damaged we would likely not be successful in prosecution.  We will continue to monitor their activity and if observed causing damage we will be taking enforcement action.  We appreciate and share your concerns.  If you have any additional information please forward to us.  Capt. Seefeldt   These Jackwads!    
    • Can't stand the guy and don't watch his craap!  I was watching videos on the Sherp vehicle which is pretty cool and these two popped up.  When I saw them mowing over Wild rice beds it [PoorWordUsage]ed me off and got me to send it in to the DNR.  
    • ahh good old whistlindiesel, your just part of the click bait generating even more revenue for him now   love him or hate him he sure knows how to generate some buzz   Also he was already on the Mn DNR $hitlist for this and ticketed see below:      
    • Watch the two videos below and see what you think?  Wet land destruction or not?   I saw these clowns on Youtube and sent it in to the MN DNR and this was there reply and mind back to them.   May help to read the Wet land use description on the DNR web page as well.     Read bottom-up.     To: Vollbrecht, Brice (DNR) Cc: Seefeldt, Phillip (DNR)  "Well you are the experts paid to protect our wet lands.  If you didn’t see any objectional wet land damage in either of the two videos I forwarded.   Then I guess I must have been mistaken what wetland and Wild rice bed damaged must be?  Just a question if there registered to operate in a public water area, do they have to use a boat launch like every other water craft or just fly off through the reeds like they did in the video?  Keep doing a great job guys!  May be I buy one.  Thanks for your time.  Steve"          Sent from Mail for Windows From: Vollbrecht, Brice (DNR) Sent: Saturday, December 3, 2022 3:53 PM To: [email protected] Cc: Seefeldt, Phillip (DNR) Subject: Sherp Complaint Steve: I got an email sent to me through the info center regarding a wetland complaint you had sent in about a year ago.  I also saw the email you attempt to send Captain Seefeldt.  Just wanted to let you know the Captain was not  ignoring you, it looks like you misspelled his name in the original email you sent.   This spring after the snow/ice melted and things started to green up, one of our enforcement pilots flew around the area where the farm is located.  The pilot was unable to locate any areas of concern where the Sherp may have caused damage to the wetland.  The pilot also flew over other wetland areas close to the farm, but did not observe any damage. The Sherp is dual registered which would allow it to operate in a public water area.  If the other wetland/lake where they drove down the road is private property we have not received any complaints from landowners down there for trespass.   I have included the Captain in this email.  If you have any further questions feel free to contact either one of us. Thank you Conservation Officer Brice Vollbrecht, Bemidji #1 Station MN DNR Enforcement (Cell)-218-760-1798
