(FAYETTE CO.) - Indiana Conservation Officers want to pass along information for a great opportunity to wounded veterans for a guided turkey hunt.

Steve Davis, Fayette County, is offering the opportunity for a wounded veteran to turkey hunt and get into the woods. Steve wants to share his joy in the sport to any disabled American veteran getting into the woods.

Steve is offering a guided turkey hunt on private property within Fayette County.

Steve suffered a serious injury to himself in 1983, which caused him to become a quadriplegic. He has since created a hunting trailer, sized at 14 by 18 feet, designed to be wheel chair assessable.

The trailer is designed to be taken off-road and placed as a hunting blind to assist with difficulties of movement by the hunter.

Steve has utilized this trailer since 2001 and has had many opportunities to get back into the woods and hunt again. He hopes to pass the opportunity along to others having the same difficulties getting into the woods.

Don and Dave Steinard are friends of Steve and are willing to help with the hunt as well.

The hunt is planned for April 29th and 30th, which falls on opening weekend this year!

For further information or to request an opportunity to hunt with Steve and the Steinard brothers contact Conservation Officer Travis Stewart at the number below. If a large number of requests are received, the results will be based on a random draw of a name.
