Are there any outfits around that make deer blinds that a 70 year old Veteran with one leg can drive his ATV right up into? Have you heard of such a thing or seen one?

We put people on the moon, surely we can find a way to put a man in a deer blind. Must be a way.

I have not seen a blind that fits the description but I have seen a tracked wheel chair that would make it possible.
I believe it's called the action tracker chair.

I got to take it for a test run, the thing is awesome, it can go just about anywhere an ATV can go, it can be used as a sit down wheel chair or it can support a disabled person in a standing position.

But it costs about the same as a small pickup.


Do for yourself as much as you can, eat what nature provides as much as you can. This is the key to sleeping well and living long.

The season I was in a wheelchair, my son got a moving crate,, about 4wx7lx7h, put in windows and a door. I drove my scooterto the blind, up the ramp inside, It was a tight fit to turn around but was doable. I don't think a atv will work, but a large ground blind should.

I would think an appropriate size stand could be built to accommodate a 4 wheeler (if it had a reverse). merely make a 3 sided blind with the open side having a ramp to drive up and into the blind. Maybe use a roll up curtain on the open wall for better concealment once in place. I would think the window height would be more critical to suite proper and comfortable shooting.

I am guessing he is mobile, with a walker, crutches or some how. So how about just a 4x4 ground blind where he can drive up to it, use crutches or??? and go in.
