Mobility-Impaired Hunters and ATVs

I got a question today from a Hunter visiting my website. The question posed was: "I am on oxygen and cannot walk more than a few feet. Can I ride a 4-wheeler to a hunting spot? I am 69 years old."

I dug around the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's website in search of an answer for this Hunter. I found that the answer could be either "Yes" or "No" depending on where you want to hunt.

There is a thing called an "Alternative Mobility Permit" (AMP). This permit allows persons who cannot walk, or cannot walk without assistance due to severe and permanent physical disabilities, to drive or be transported by ATV (a 4 wheeler) on selected wildlife management areas. Not all wildlife management areas allow Alternative Mobility Permitted ATVs access.

Here is a link to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's website with information regarding the Alternative Mobility Permit: Alternative Mobility Permits (AMP)

Here is a link to the information regarding which wildlife management areas allow Alternative Mobility Permitted ATVs access: SUV Permits - Summary of WMAs and Maps

You can view all the wildlife management area brochures at the following link to find out if the particular wildlife management area where you want to hunt allows ATVs: WMA Brochures. In the individual WMA brochure, look in the section called "Public Access and Vehicles." This section of the brochure tells you whether or not ATVs are allowed.

You may also be interested in the mobility-impaired quota hunts. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission offers hunts on some wildlife management areas to those hunters certified mobility-impaired. These hunts are reserved exclusively for certified mobility-impaired hunters. Here is a link for more information: Mobility-impaired Quota Hunts.

I hope you, as well as the hunter who made the original inquiry, find this information helpful.

Bear Attack - Franklin County, Florida

News Release - Bear Attack


News Release: Associated Press
Florida Wildlife Commission
December 22, 2014

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) -- A 15-year-old Panhandle girl is recovering in a hospital after being attacked by a bear.

Sherry Mann told Panama City television station WMBB that her daughter sustained significant injuries to her legs, back, neck and face.

Mann says the attack happened when the girl was walking her dog behind a supermarket in Eastpoint, which is east of Panama City in Franklin County. She says the bear released the girl after the dog lunged at it.

The girl was transported to Bay Medical Center Sacred Heart Health System in Panama City.

Leah Reeder is expected to undergo surgery. Her mother says the most significant injuries are to her face.

FWC law enforcement officers and biologists immediately responded to the scene and have initiated trapping and removal efforts.

It was the third bear attack in the region this year.

Apalachicola National Forest Prescribed Burning Today in Liberty County

News Release: US Forest ServiceDecember 4, 2014

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The U.S. Forest Service is prescribed burning in the Apalachicola National Forest today.

The 1,500 acre prescribed burn will take place in Liberty County south of Telogia, between State Road 65 and Forest Road 105. The burn will improve wildlife habitat, eliminate vegetation build up and reduce the threat of wildfires.

People are reminded that the smoke they may see today and tomorrow in this vicinity is not coming from a wildfire. Motorists are cautioned to drive slowly with lights on while traveling in smoky areas. Drivers should be particularly cautious in areas where prescribed fires have taken place when it is foggy. Morning fog can mix with smoke and decrease visibility further.

This is one of many prescribed burns the Apalachicola National Forest is doing during the 2014 prescribed burning season. Today’s burn is in burn unit 8 (see the Apalachicola’s planned burn): http://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/stelprdb5438893.pdf

Individuals who are sensitive to smoke may continue to monitor us at http://www.fs.usda.gov/news/apalachicola/news-events.

Adventures of a Woman in the Woods
Adventures of a Woman in the Woods

I was not always engulfed in a life of racing through a maze of winding wooded roads to get a glimpse of a darting deer or wandering through my backyard in my nightgown and flip-flops with a flashlight looking for a wild boar. And being caught up-river in a tiny jon boat in the middle of a lightning storm was never on my to-do list either. I have, however, found myself in the mist of these adventures and more during my life as a woman in the woods in Northwest Florida.
