    Very cool, though being a gun guy I kept trying to guess the parts on your rifle ;-)

    Actually I've never seen anyone shoot a rifle from a chair. I've done it but it was in a lightweight manual and I was shooting a .270 someone at the range lent me, so I don't know what the load was. I guess my point is that since I'm almost always the only person around with a chair, I don't get to see other folks in chairs doing stuff. It would be nice to be in a hunt with some other chair users. I was wondering how you stalk anything in a chair though. Besides all the crunching and cracking all powerchair have had dynamic brakes for about the last 20 years so click click everytime you let off the joystick. I guess a manual might be quieter but that's a tough push unless I guess you had a FreeWheel (just saving Pat some time here ;-) )

    Good job man, and, it certainly sounds like you got your foot in the door. We need somebody like you up here to take advantage of similar situations. Most of the time here they hire sharp shooters or AB bow hunters. You have an exceptionally strong organization going on, keep it up!
    From the time you were born till you ride in a hearse, there is nothing so bad that it couldn't be worse!

    Why be politically correct when you can be right!

    Glad they kept the focus on hunting and did not turn it into a "sympathy" story. You performed like a TV regular. Well done.

    Exactly ... wouldn't have expected anything less from Deadeye though! Good stuff (but I still dislike deer meat ... blech! lol)
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

I improvised, called a friend and got permission to go to a county park to hold the interview. the last thing I wanted was to get arrested for having a rifle in the park, and I didn't want to drive 30 minutes to my hunting spot to do it. Anyway, here's the story and link to the video.

    Robin Clark shoots and hunts like any other sportsmen, except for one thing. He does it in a wheelchair.

    "As a youth, I was an avid outdoors man," Clark said. "I had a diving accident when I was 16 years old, which obviously hindered my ability to get out and successfully hunt.

    Clark's accident didn't sideline him for long. In 2002 he joined Wheelin' Sportsmen; an organization helping people with disabilities to enjoy outdoor activities like hunting and fishing. Wheelin' Sportsmen has ties to the National Wild Turkey Federation, with chapters in several states across the U.S.

    "Virginia, I"m proud to say, has the largest wheelchair sportsmen program of any state in the nation," Clark said. Virginia's chapter has over 350 members and holds over 30 events throughout the state each year.

    Clark and the Wheelin' Sportsmen have been called in by the Fluvanna County Sheriff's Office to help out with a deer over-population problem at Pleasant Grove Park.

    "There is a tremendous deer population problem surrounding the park," Clark said.

    The Fluvanna County board of supervisors voted unanimously Wednesday in support of an organized hunt to cut down on the growing deer population. Seven hunters with Wheelin' Sportsmen will participate in the hunt scheduled for January 4th.

    "It's an efficient way to do it, but it also gives people with disabilities an opportunity they would never have otherwise," Clark said.

    The hunt will begin at 6:00am and the sheriff's office will seal the perimeter of the hunt to ensure public safety.
    that was cool dude, great news
    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.
