I understand where you are coming from. I am a disabled vet myself. I was injured after 12 years of service. I have been hunting since I could walk and now that I have moved back to texas, I can not find a place to go hunting. Public hunting lands are over crowded and you either have to know someone of pay a couple thousand dollars to go hunting. It breaks my heart.

I'm a disabled vet myself. Alot of states offer mobility impaired huts, maybe you could check into them. Also, alot of states will allow ATV use in areas where it's not allowed for mobility impaired hunters after filling out an application for it. Don't give up!!! There's always a way

I am an active duty Marine stationed in Quantico, VA. The Wounded Warriors Headquarters is stationed here on this base, and I personally know a few of the Marines in charge. As well, I will be involved with guiding wounded warriors on some hunts this year.

I will look into this issue and see what informartion I can find in regards to wounded former military members.

Wounded Warrior,, I'm a about to be disabled vet.Just have to finnish up my FPEB and be put out of the Air force after 24+ years. A few years back I was down at the Navy Air Station in Corpus Christi Tx. I remember talking to a few of the Navy guys about hunting in Texas. I was told at that time that the Navy MWR had a hunting area just west of Corpus. Could be worth a call the the navy MWR.

I've heard quite a bit of chatter regarding wounded vets and TX hunts lately. There are a lot of people who care and are doing some things on a small scale, just finding those is the tough part. BADF and Buckmasters has worked with Hopeforthewarriors.org conducting hunts for vets through our chapters. You should apply through them as they are nationwide. There hunts would be provided by our TX Buckmasters chapters. Contacting the closest chapter to you would be another good resource.

I have had some conversation with the Bowman Lodge in OK. It is a high fence strictly for military use. Here is a brief overview:

The Bowman Lodge at Lone Tree Ranch was established by vets, for vets…to give them the complete outdoor experience they deserve.

A natural hunter’s paradise awaits.
Lone Tree Ranch is 1,100 acres of mixed hardwood forests and open grassland, located outside Morris, Oklahoma. Trophy whitetail deer, turkey, and a variety of small game animals abound. Fifteen stocked ponds provide ample fishing opportunities as well.

Here, there are no limits on what you can do.

We offer all the luxury of a high-fenced, commercial hunt , minus the restrictions. If you sight it, you can shoot it. We have worked with other vets to provide a variety of adaptive hunting measures – special transport, blinds and stands – to ensure an exciting, fulfilling hunt. All hunts are fully guided by a fellow veteran.

If I can be of assistance please let me know.
