Description
The user is a passionate hunter and uses a quad bike to get out in the woods. In collaboration with the Swedish Association for Hunting and Wildlife Management, he organizes hunting trips for other people with disabilities (special moose hunt). No prior knowledge is necessary to participate in these trips, see jagareforbundet.se/jakten/jakt-for-alla/tillganglighet/ and www.rullarnas.se (last checked June 2017).

Users comments
People with disabilities may obtain special permission to hunt from vehicles. They may also sit, stand-hunting, in the vicinity of a forest road. The biggest problem is that many shooting ranges are not adapted for people with disabilities.
