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