On Good Friday, my wife, one of my good buddies, and I went Turkey hunting. Hunting is something that I did not do before my accident, but thanks to my good buddy Kurt, it has become one of the few sports that I can participate in. I still have to have someone drag me out of bed early, drive me to the farm, and help me get positioned inside the hunting blind, but with the adaptive equipment Kurt and some of his friends purchased I can aim and fire the gun.
If you have a few minutes, watch the video below. If you know someone who is disabled, but would like to go hunting, I know of some people in Parsons who have equipment available to loan out. They don’t charge a dime. I also know of a wonderful ministry called, Peterson Outdoor Ministries, just across the border of Kansas near Joplin.
