Red face Disabled hunter needing to get out in woods

Hello All,
I am a disabled hunter with cerebral palsy and struggle with the physical aspects of a hunt. It is a struggle to walk a distance through brush and woods as well as carrying my gun and gear. However, I love being out in the woods for hours enjoying the peace of it all. Being that I have to be helped to a stationary hunt location, I do not have the ability to drive game and or track them. Thus far, in the few years that I have hunted, I have not netted any game. It is my hope to get an all terrain tracked wheelchair made by TracFab http://www.tracfab.com I have battled both insurance and our states (Pennsylvania) Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR) to fund the purchase of such device. But, all of them have not interest in providing devices that are adequate for outdoor use. Adequate to them is three wheeled scooters barely sufficient for indoor use.

I have a GoFundMe page set up at:

is bait hunting legal? You see a lot more deer from one spot. Maybe get lucky and find a good spot with apple trees, thugh they are usually out of apples by gun season. I there is farming in your area maybe some natural bait. Shooting sticks, tripod, or some kind of rest

I just asked about something like this today. Im also looking for a way to get outdoors. I was interested in an electric UTV called the Buddy bugy that had a lift but I hadn't even considered about once I got on the ground. I know the struggle with those small front tires and those outdoor chairs are freaken expensive. I hope youre able to go hunt soon.
