Deer hunt for the mobility impaired in October

LAKE WAPPAPELLO, MO (KFVS) -

The Missouri Department of Conservation and the National Wild Turkey Federation are sponsoring a Mobility Impaired Modern Gun Deer Hunt on October 17 and 18.

Applications will be accepted until September 4. A drawing will be held on September 8.

Applicants must be at least 11 years of age and have a permanent physical condition that impairs their mobility, such as paralysis or amputation of lower extremities, and require the use of a wheelchair, braces, crutches, or similar items.

First-time applicants must also provide a letter from a doctor that verifies the physical condition and need for help with mobility.

Applicants who've attended in previous years don't need the doctor's letter.

Hunters will be selected at random during drawings at various locations. Successful applicants will be notified by mail.

Applicants must have a valid Missouri managed firearms deer hunting permit to take part in the hunt.

Hunters will be allowed to have a guide/assistant in the blind during the hunt, but those people are not allowed to have a firearm or other killing device.

Hunters and their guides must stay in the blind area and may not hunt outside of it.

For applications and more information, stop by or call the Wappapello Lake Project Office at 573-222-8562.

You can also send an email to Jeremy.W.Jackson@usace.army.mil.

    Federal judges have ordered the EPA to ban a dangerous, popular insecticide, but farmers in Southeast Missouri who use the chemical are coming to its defense.
