I've been taking a guy in his 70's turkey hunting for the past few years, and he'd probably kick you in the nuts if you tried to insinuate that he needed a special season (like a child) so he could get a chance to kill a bird.
How 'bout yall take your kids, old timers, and disabled people hunting during the regular season???

Do not think it would work. Maybe a wheelchair hunt. Disabled covers a lot of people. And old folks should have done it when younger. I let them have all the good parking spots at the stores already.:smack:

Most older guys I know who turkey hunt would rather call and work one than to kill one and lug it out. Kinda catch and release thing to them I guess. One guy hits his call three times and sits it down and waits...and waits...and waits and before season is over he will kill a bird. Some of these 'old' guys were killing birds wearing Big Smith overalls before some of us were born. Heck if they would just take me and teach me some of what they know I would carry their birds out for them and their gun.

I know of older guys that can't walk and compete with young men. If someone could go with them and take their time, carry gun, help them get set up for shot, would mean many getting to hunt, again.

I'm all for the old hunters as well as the kids,but to me disabled should mean wheelchair. I know a few disabled guys around here that cant work a lick, but will turkey and deer hunt all season.

My grandfather is now 83yrs old. He taught me everything I know to this day about turkey hunting and used to drag me around with him every chance he could for as long as I can remember. For the last 5 yrs he has not been to where he can physically go, but a couple times a year. Being he is in this situation a special hunt would not do him any good, since he is incapable of just getting up and going. What does him good is the fact that myself or one of his 3 sons would stop whatever they were doing and take him hunting if he got the notion to go.

Remember it's not just about a special season we should be carring youths and the elderly with us during the season as well.
