Hunting the Handicapped

This letter from a patient was on my fax machine this morning:

"Dear Dr. Grumpy,

"Since my injury I haven't been able to go hunting, which used to be one of my favorite things. I found out that the state has a program for disabled deer hunting. Could you please complete the attached forms to let me participate in this?"

I hope this is simply a misplaced adjective, and not some bizarre new state program.

Well, doesn't nature usually cull out the weak and injured from the herd? Hunting them would be more efficient...if less sporting.

*pictures deer in wheelchair*

That's just not right.

It just doesn't seem very sporting to hunt disabled deer. We should at least arm them so they have a fighting chance.

LOL Great visual!

You'll have to fill us in later on how this all turned out.

In Tx, if he has a disability and is unable to draw a bow, he can use a crossbow. If he were visually impared, a laser dot. Its things like that.

What do disabled deer hunt?

Ideally, disabled deer should hunt idiots wearing bright red hunting caps, driving pickup trucks, and drinking beer.
But that would also be like shooting fish in a barrel, wouldn't it?

I'm from the countryside. Some of the non-handicapped hunters are worry enough. Depending on this guy's handicap, there is no WAY I'd want someone with certain disabilities carrying weapons and shooting at things almost literally in my back yard.

By the way, I suspect this deer hunting program involves shooting domesticated deer in a large, wooded pen. No sport in that at all.

WELL, something just doesn't seem right about this, PETA and all.

Virtual deer or whatever hunting 'game' and choice of frozen pieces of meat?

OMG you have to making these up.

I am sure that Jeff is right. Picture a disabled guy with a crossbow. How will he get into his deer stand? I don't know, but I bet the ramp really will be something to be proud of.

Do they strap the 30 odd 6 to the wheelchair?
