Physically Challenged Hunter Program

The Deer Program is responsible for statewide coordination of the Physically Challenged Hunter Program (PCHP). The PCHP provides hunting opportunities for individuals who are disabled. Individuals who are wheelchair confined, mobility impaired, or amputees of the upper extremities may apply. Permits issued to qualified persons allow them to participate in special deer hunts on private and public land, provide access to handicapped ATV trails on wildlife management areas.

Permits are also issued for bucks-only crossbow hunting to persons whom medical doctors certify cannot use regular archery equipment.
