Program Description

With the same dedication it has brought to restoring wild turkey populations across North America, the NWTF is delivering, and in some cases re-introducing, the beauty and excitement of the outdoors to thousands of disabled people through its outreach program, Wheelin' Sportsmen.

The program was created by a merger between the Alabama-based Wheelin' Sportsmen of America and the NWTF. Wheelin' Sportsmen is the realization of both organizations' commitment to creating a national effort to provide the disabled with opportunities to get out and enjoy outdoor activities, such as hunting, fishing, bird watching and much more.

Today, disabled women, kids and men of all ages are once again enjoying the outdoors. For more information about Wheelin' Sportsmen, call (800) THE-NWTF.

Does For Does
These hunts are for disabled females only. Disabled hunters are paired with able-bodied women hunters. These events allow disabled women to participate in a non-competitive environment.

Ultimate Team-Up
These are hunts designed for all individuals with disabilities. These hunts pair an able-bodied person with a disabled hunter for any type of hunt.

Ultimate Duos
These are hunts that pair disabled children with able-bodied hunters to give children an experience they will always remember.

Fishing Round-Ups
Wheelin' Sportsmen Fishing Round-Ups are designed to provide disabled individuals the opportunity to fish with the help of able-bodied volunteers in a safe environment. These events are open to all disabled people regardless of their disability or age. The emphasis is placed on the opportunity to participate so the event is non-competitive.
