The Allegheny Airport is having a lottery for bow hunting permits this year. I mentioned it here and thought it would be great if they included some spots for hunters with disabilities. So I contacted Senator Matt Smith with the suggestion.
His office just called and said they thought it was a great idea. The Senator likes the idea of helping hunters with limited accessibility and is working with the airport authority to secure spots in next years lottery for hunters with disabilities (it was to late for this year).
It always pays to make people aware of the issues hunters with disabilities face. Gaining wheelchair access to prime whitetail areas is exciting news! Thank you Senator Matt Smith !
