Camoman,
I was diagnosed with ALS in 2006, at age 45, and I refuse to give up. Last month, with help from friends, I shot 2 red stags and a wild boar in Argentina.
Focus on what you want to do, and then work on making it happen.
To get an idea of what a hunter with ALS can do, see my posts with links to my recently published article about disabled hunting, and my blog.
