Disabled Hunters Get Assistance From Commission's Track Chair Program

The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission provides track chairs for use by sportsmen with mobility disabilities at organized wildlife recreation events. The track chairs, which were supplied by the N.C. Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus, the Commission and other donors, are equipped with rubberized tracks instead of wheels and two 12-volt batteries, allowing the user to overcome many types of terrain for up to six hours. Each chair is outfitted with a fishing rod and long gun holder, providing greater access to hunting, shooting, angling and wildlife-watching opportunities for people with disabilities.

368A4015 The Commission utilizes an 18-foot trailer with six track chair units that can be deployed at Commission-sanctioned events by our staff and partners. Partners can reserve the chairs at: http://ncwildlife.org/Hunting/Before-the-Hunt/Disabled-Hunting-Program/Track-Chair.

The Chairs are deployed at events such as the annual Back in the Woods Again hunt, programming by the North Carolina Bowhunters Association, National Wild Turkey Federation and various Commission events. There is also an available track chair unit at the John Lentz Hunter Education Complex  (Ellerbe, N.C.)that can be used on the shooting range, and a track chair unit at the Troy Wildlife Depot in Troy, N.C.

For more information on the Commission's track chair program, send an email to track.chairs@ncwildlife.org or call 919-707-0170.
