    I know that Union county has a handicap blind if we get some weather you can kill geese and ducks down there,give them a call I'm sure its reservation only. Dry Lake near bladwin also has a handicap blind but it looks like for mostly ducks give them a call at baldwin for that one.
    Good Luck

    I know that you are inquiring about waterfowl hunting but I know of a place that specializes in this type of deer hunting. I talked to the guy yesterday and I think he had like 8-10 blinds that were wheelchair accessable. Said he had a good year with a lot of success. I can get his name and number if you want.

    Mermet has a disabled blind but I think it`s more for duck hunting.

    If you send me a PM and let me know just what your disability is maybe I can help you out.Have a pit near Crab Orchard and when they get birds down there I would have no problem shareing.Just need to be sure we could get you to it and in it before any plans were made.Pit is appox 6 foot deep so you would have to have some use of legs to be able to hunt from it.
