Taking a one legged guy in Green Timber

Postby ArkansasRobertson » Wed Nov 27, 2013 2:24 pm

I gotta friend who lost a leg. Anyways I got him into duck hunting, but we usually are hunting out of my boat where he can sit down. I want to take him out east in some green timber this year, but want to take him into a walk in hole. Any ideas for getting him in there?

The only thing i can think of it maybe making like a walker out of PVC pipe? I don't know what they say about kayaks since they are motorless.

I think an exception can be made on the yak since he is disabled

what does he normally use to get around? how far do you guys need to walk in? what sort of stuff do you need to get through?

good for you for being a great friend and helping to get him out there. im sure there is a solution.

Oh i call him a wussy the whole time were walking. Its cypress trees with knees everywhere...pretty hard walking. He has a prostetic inside his waders. The mud pulls it right off of his knee when he lifts he leg up, and a cane or crutch just sinks right in.

Why couldn't you use a kayak or small jon? Against regs or something, or just not possible?

If its regs, I say eff the man. If he has such bad judgment to write on a ticket on that, he's got terrible karma coming his way.

it wouldn help with the boot in the mud issue but a duck billed push pole cut down might do the job for a cane.

a couple spots i hunt where i walk out to retrieve birds are so muddy that i use my float tube and it does help in my situation. still, i have to agree that exceptions can be made. if he gets a ticket for being in a kayak, then post it up on here and i will be the first to contribute to paying it off for him. that would be a real **** move to ticket him in that situation.

theyre pretty fun to hunt out of but where i live you can only get away with it the first week or two of the season and then it is just too cold.

i picked up mine at the job lot store (same thing as big lots) for $25. it says "leinenkugels summer shanty" on it but a little spray paint fixed that right up.

You guys should stop for breakfast after hunting all morning. I suggest IHOP

You're taking a one-legged guy on a walk-in hunt?

In the afternoon, are you entering him in an ass-kicking contest?

This as well. If a warden cant look past a one legged dude keeping up with the rest of the bipedal pack, then he has crapped in the bed he has to sleep in.

Teach him a lesson and tell him he can't go. Maybe then he will learn to stop losing legs.
