    disabled or physically impaired hunting ...

    so , as some of you know , i am one legged , and have worn a prostheic leg for 2 years , now with new surgery i will have a much better anchoring system for the knee and foot to attach too . i still enjoy hunting and want to get out to most of the plces i see you lucky buggers out doing the deed , ..... whats the rules around a quad bike or similer into some of these places i see on here ? .... i walk a certain amount on slightly uneven terrain ... but not that well .... not having a knee is a fukin hindrence ... lets say i knock a stag or pig over , to carry it out on my back requires two failrly good knees ... my remaining knee was broken in 5 places .... im not whinging or whining about my place in life , was just after your thoughts about the possibility of quadding to a lot of places in NZ ...
    cheers

    Interesting. My mate is just getting used to his new leg (has a cup thing?). Same as you by the looks (above the knee) How does on go about getting a set up like that?

    No help on the quad access either mate. Kaimais and Otawa you would make it .5 of a metre if you hit it at a hundy

    By fuck that must have been sore as for a while after them tapping it in.

    As for Quad access to National Parks I would imagine it would be a no.
    But if you had a Private farm that you could get access onto then I can't see the problem. We let people on our place a fair bit and they can take their vehicle on at their risk.

    If I wasn't so far away from you I would say come and have a hunt.
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone

    I rekon you may be good to go in a few fly in spots. With a mate or two you could get into a few good shooting positions and get the others to recover it for you?

    That actually sounds the go KJ. My father in law was a keen hunter that fell victim to the bends diving and ended up a paraplegic. For years after his hunting buddies would carry Ron in to a clearing or chopper in with him and then park him by a clearing and do the gut, carry and breakdown for him if he shot anything.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Went to a UFBA conference where Mark Inglis was the guest speaker. Amazing attitude
    As for quad bike hunting - go for it and use it to your advantage

    Yep. That was a dive repair business in Manukau. He had also had two diving retail stores before that.

    Stumpy, can you ride a horse?...that could open up a few different places to go...in fact a lot more than a quad.
    Which is worse, ignorance or apathy...I don't know and don't care.

    Stumpy. There are a few places around that you can drive right up to the hut door, towing a quad on trailer, and then hunt using the quad.
    Tataraakina on Taupo/Napier comes to mind, but it willl cost you a few $$ for the hut fees. At least the animals are true free range though.
