Eligible applicants must be non-ambulatory individuals with a permanent physical condition that severely impairs their mobility from either paralysis or amputation of one or both of the lower extremities, which requires assistance from a wheelchair, braces, crutches or other similar aids of mobility. 

A list of hunt locations, dates, allowable methods of harvest, and points of contact are provided in this notice.  To obtain an application packet or get more information on a particular hunt, please contact the appropriate hunt coordinator.
