Lake Sakakawea hosts 10th annual wheelchair hunt

Five hunters came out to enjoy the outdoors and test their luck against deer when Lake Sakakawea State Park recently hosted its 10th annual wheelchair hunt for disabled hunters.
“I was involved in some other hunts for disabled hunters and after talking to a good friend who was wounded in Vietnam and confined to a wheelchair, he and I discussed the differences between shooting a deer and hunting,” Park Manager John Tunge said. “We set this up as a deer hunt. The hunters are provided a blind and they determine when they hunt.”
