I have become disables since 2-1-16 and am not going to be able to walk very far or carry any weight. I have not been able to get on the yearly lease due to loss of income. I was wondering about hunting on the national forest but would have to use an atv to get into the woods to set up ground blind. It appears from what I am reading on web sites no off road vehicles are allowed. I have left messages at forest office but not received any replies. anyone have any info on this subject?

Even if you don't want to apply for this hunt, I would think by calling them you could find an ombudsman to answer those questions, since it is a National Forest persons with disabilities hunt.

For the most part, in both Davy Crocket and Sam Houston NF, in hunting areas you cannot use off road vehicles. We go into both forests and know that there are some off road trails, but there is no hunting allowed in those areas.

You drive to an area and park your vehicle, walk into a hunting area, and that will be all that is allowed with a vehicle.

If you get the Texas apl the book has info on certain public areas that allow atv use by disabled permit only. Thatís what Iím going to do next year. The place I want to hunt told me to stop by on the way in and they would give me gate codes for access. Pretty sweet because I almost gave up this year!

I don',t know which area your talking about ,is it the National Forest or one of The Texas APH WMA's ?? But White Oak WMA also allows ATV for the disabled.

This link is from 2016. I've been on this hunt. It is great. They start taking applications in Sept. or Oct. The hunt is on a private tree farm, Alazan WMA, and SFA experimental forest. It is not on national forest land. The lady who runs the hunt works for the national forest. The national wild turkey federation is the main sponsor. You have to find a place to stay there's no camping. It's a great hunt with good food
