All Day Gear

I would like to thank  Scott from All Day Gear  for donating two of his rifle slings to the Western Pennsylvania Wounded Warriors. 

All Day Gear, is a local Western Pennsylvania, family owned business, that is making a difference in the hunting community.  I believe they produce a quality product than greatly benefits any hunter and especially young hunters or hunters with dexterity issues or disabilities.

Please check out there website where you can purchase your own sling and visit their facebook page for more information.  I think it's great when local companies produce quality product's and donate back to their community and especially to wounded warriors.

What is Your Broadhead

I like the Magnus Buzz Cut 100 grain four blades, they fly like field tips and have a lifetime warranty. Plus they look great on my crossbow, lol.

What a Great Hunt in Illinois (part 2)

I had just seen a nice 8 pointer walking at 45 yards, I was hoping for a better shot

What a Great Hunt in Illinois (part 1)

I just returned from my bow hunting trip to Illinois with LED outdoors.  It was a fantastic hunt with great people and I will always remember this trip. 

Ryan and Chase had everything set up perfectly.  The drive into the hunting spots was easy for my accessible van (very low clearance), the ground blinds were wheelchair accessible with room for Beth and I.  The guides moved the blind and decoy when necessary and made sure I made it in and out of the location, the day it snowed bad.

They completely understand my limitations as a hunter with a disability and did everything they possibly could to get me a shot at a monster buck.  Although we seen lots of deer, turkey's, bald eagle and even coyotes I was unable to tag out on a monster buck this year.

Colder Weather and Big Bucks Down

The weather has turned colder and the big bucks are on the move.  It looks like it's going to be a great week in the ground blind if I don't freeze to death.

Several monster bucks were taken this week and I am hoping to get my opportunity next. 

I love bow hunting the rut in the mid-west for whitetails.  No other place offers the chance at a monster buck like  LED Outdoors in my opinion.  I can't wait until the sun comes up and I am ready to go.  Wish me luck, I'm going where laptops are useless and broadheads are king.

Monmouth Illinois

I have been thinking a lot about my bow hunting trip last year to Monmouth Il and can't wait to return again this year.   Planning a trip like this is exciting for anyone, but takes considerable foresight and attention to detail for an individual with a disability.

Having a great outfitter makes this planning a little easier.  Ryan from L.E.D Outdoors is the perfect host.  He understands my strengths and limitations and does everything he can to ensure I have a hunting trip I will always remember. 

This is my second trip to Monmouth or as I like to say, my happy place.  If you are a hunter with a disability, don't let your fear and limitations keep you from pursuing your dreams.  Find the right people to support you, the right place to stay, plan and execute within your abilities.
