Permit to Hunt from a Standing Vehicle

A person, who, due to injury, disease, amputation or paralysis, is permanently disabled and unable to walk in a hunting situation, may apply for a permit to hunt from a standing vehicle. This permit allows a person to hunt, and shoot from, a parked motor vehicle or ORV.

A physician or a licensed physical or occupational therapist may certify the applicant through a coordination assessment, to assess the ability of muscles or groups of muscles to work together to walk in a hunting situation. In addition a physician may certify a hunter as an amputee with the loss of a lower limb, paraplegic, spinal cord injury resulting in permanent wheelchair restrictions, or other disabilities that prevent a hunter from walking in a hunting situation, as diagnosed by the physician.

Subject to all other regulations including buck limits and antler-point restrictions, this permit also entitles the holder to take a deer of either sex under any valid deer license.
