Hunting Trip 2011

So me and my dad got up at 3:30am on January 6th to go hunting with this group USSA. We got to Clinton, La at 5:00 and I think got out to Beech Grove Plantation about 5:30 or 6:00 and stayed out till around 9:00 or 9:30am we did not see anything but a rabbit hopping around in the bushes and a crow and some beautiful red birds. So we left there to go warm up and eat. Then we went back out at around 3:30 in the afternoon till it got dark and saw lots of deer there were about 25 deer we could count, it was so awesome seeing all those deer in one place, there were 2 deer that came like 10 or 15 yards in front of us. I was amazed that the deer did not hear us cause my vent makes some noise. And we were running out of daylight it was amazing a deer came in site with minutes of daylight left so took the gun off safety and sucked on this straw thing to pull the trigger and then KABOOM…. the gun goes off…. ears ringing for like a few seconds. For a while we did not know if I hit the deer or not. By this time, it had turned dark and they had to try to find the deer in the dark, after about 5 or ten minutes later they found the deer and I had shot the deer from 150 yards away. Hey I just realized I almost wrote a book. Lol. But it was a great time got to meet some new people going through some of the same type of challenges I go through every day. Which is really cool cause you learn some new tricks that they use to make their life a little easier that I would have never thought of. Well that was long.haha

 

Gun Mount for Wheelchair

The second thing you need to get to go hunting is a gun mount, there is a company called Be Adaptive Equipment LLC that make gun mounts that can handle rifles, shotguns, pistols, and crossbows. If you have no arm or hand movements they have a mount called HQ100 it’s controlled with a joystick that you can use with your chin and mouth. To shoot there is a power trigger called TM100 operated with a sip on a blue tube. If you can not sip there is a power trigger called BT100 operated with a bite. This model is for rifles and shotguns. The HQPM is for pistols and it goes on the HQ100 and is controlled the same way. Here is a video of a guy shooting an AR-15 22LR using the HQ100 gun mount.
