    i use a .270 for my deer hunting. my problem would be the shooting up. i'm not sure my rig will give me a high enough angle. i'm gonna try one of my old shot guns on my rig to see if it will works. i was just wondering if anyone had any ideas before i got started.

    HawgHead, well I think you'd have to adapt what you use for deer hunting to shotgun hunting. I saw a Video a few years back with another Quad using a swinging arm made of steel but cannot remember the details or who made the Video. The arm was counterbalanced to make it easy for the shooter to swing the shotgun. Give us some more details on how you use a deer rifle.

    i use a narvaez sharpshooter gun rest. it might work, i haven't tried yet. my friend and i are gonna go out and see on his next week off. i was just wondering if there were any other quads in here that duck hunted. the less technical the better.

    I've only been once, and that was @ Heggemeier's Game Farm last year...

    I'm going to give it a whirl, next season. Supposedly there's accessible blinds available, but I'm gonna need a guide (with dog) to go along too.

    Keep us posted, as to your progress. I'd be honored to share a blind with ya'...
     
  6. Man I wish I could help ya, you may want to try asking at a shooter's complex or hunt club if you have one near by. Also may want to try the MDC Waterfowl Managed area's, alot of em have handicap access blinds and may have connection for you to look into as well.

    Will suggest tho if you do get something figured out tho to get out as much as possible and practice shooting skeet and trap, and mix it up with different varience's (left to right, right to left, going away, coming in, rising and falling, ect. ect.)

    Good luck and keep us posted :cheers:. If you get it figured out I would definately look into the MWT sponsored duck hunt up at Heggemeier's Game Farm. You in the right spot and couldn't ask for a better bunch of folks than you'll find here.

    p.s. Welcome to MWT's :wave:

    my friends have tried to get me to go to mingo for years so they could be assured a blind and not drive all that way just to have to turn around and come home. they have a place close now. thanks for the skeet idea.

    In response to your original question, I would talk to the guys at http://www.nrahq.org/compete/disabled.asp
    They will know. Another idea to keep in the back of your head was a fellow I talked to a while back that had a counterbalance set up on his gun so that it had no weight at all to swing. He used it on a local pheasant hunt for the disabled. A really neat outfit but he wasn't comfortable with me putting a picture on the adaptations part of my site because of liability and patent issues. Let me know if the idea intrigues you and I'll try to get you in touch with him.

    Yep, there are perks for those that take us disabled guys hunting.

    (hint, hint...)

    That reminds me of the time me & a few other guys decided to go to the racetrack, on a Friday night. It was gonna be packed, so I drove, since we'd be able to park up front... :D
