The Wheelin’ Sportsmen group is dedicated to providing all people with disabilities the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors. The group organizes hunting and fishing events, recreational shooting and other outdoor activities. More than 20 events are held throughout Florida each year.
As part of a partnership between the District and the National Wild Turkey Federation/Wheelin’ Sportsmen, seven events for disabled outdoor enthusiasts are planned each year. Here is a look at the outdoor opportunities for fiscal year 2007.
