Open Season for Disabled Hunting  

As the leaves begin to fall and the temperatures get cooler, it can only mean one thing…it is hunting season. Each year, over 1.7 million disabled people participate in hunting and shooting sports across the country. This number has continued to increase over the years with advances in technology and awareness for resources available to assist the disabled hunter with the sport. From modified equipment to specialized hunting excursions, there are very few limits now to getting out and enjoying a favorite pastime.

One of the most notable improvements is hunting equipment which has changed tremendously over the years. Before, many hunters were left with creating their own solutions to overcoming challenges or would not be able to participate at all. Now several companies make and sell high tech adaptive equipment and there are many options to help the hunter such as shooting rests and mounts for firearms, trigger mechanisms, and even adaptive ATVs and trucks.

My professional background stems from non-profit marketing and fundraising for a large children’s cancer hospital. Every day I was able to make connections and relationships for kids and their families going through devastating times. From securing small donations to large corporate support, it was all about providing hope that one day doctors and researchers would find a cure. It was truly an honor to be a part of something so important.

Just this past year, I came to work alongside my family for BLVD.com, a website dedicated to offering the latest information and resources for people needing mobility products. This was a dream come true for me as I have always wanted to combine more time with my family while still helping others. Our family has been in the mobility industry for over 35 years with the goal of enhancing the quality of life for people with mobility issues. This is the spirit behind BLVD and what I am most excited about sharing in my blog.

I love meeting new people and have found that volunteering is the best way to learn more about others and myself. Coffee keeps me going as do walks my pup "Kirby" and most of all being with family and friends. I invite you to check out my blog to learn more about how "together we can move through life better!"
