The Disabled Hunter/Angler Program is designed to accommodate persons who have a permanent mobility disability of the lower limbs, or who are permanently, legally blind and wish to enter the big game licence draw process.
Disabled hunters who receive a big game licence, shall, in the case of a permanently, legally blind person; and may, in the case of a permanently mobility impaired person; designate at any one time only one designated shooter to shoot and retrieve the type and sex of big game animal named on the disabled hunter’s licence, provided that:
A person designated to shoot on behalf of a disabled hunter need not keep the disabled hunter in sight when in pursuit of an animal that has been injured by the licence holder or designated hunter.
A designated hunter may be designated by not more than one disabled hunter per season.
A designated hunter means a resident who, while not prohibited from the courts to possess a firearm or hold a game licence, and while in possession of his/her own valid Outdoor Identification Card, is designated by a disabled hunter to shoot and retrieve the big game animal of the kind and sex named on the disabled hunter’s licence.
