From Danny Coker: "I recently (fall of 2010) went hunting with Al McCarty of Chairbound Hunters in Wheatland Wyoming. This was my first Antelope hunt and I was actually able to bag a pretty nice animal. My shot was only a 267 yarder though. The horns measured 14 ¾ on one side And 14 ¼ on the other. This hunt was an incredible experience for me and Al is a great guy to hunt with. I can't say enough good stuff about him and his guides."

Here's Rich bringing home his 2014 spring turkey. He harvested it using his own modification of the Deadshot Treepod. http://www.handihelp.net/2093/index.html
Oct 3, 2013 the 3rd day of NYS's fall season Rich went out to one of hisground blinds around 1:00. The blind is made from snow fence and really hides the wheelchair. It's in a hedgerow along side a hay field. Around 2:30, with little calling, 3 gobblers came into the field about 40 yards away and started angling to right in front of him. Richpushed off the safety, put the Red Dot on his12 ga on the largest and pulled the string in his mouth. The rest is history. The gobbler had 9" beard and spurs over 1".
Here's Rich's Tom for 2012.
From Rich: "I celebrated my 69th birthday on May 3rd by harvesting this turkey. All the adaptions I talk about on my website (Inexpensive gun mount, Poor Mans Trigger Adapter and Universal Chair Mount) were used. All this equipment can be placed on a wheelchair for about $200. I also used a snow fence blind which really worked great."
Here's the results of Rich Fabend's 11 year effort to harvest a wild turkey. It finally happened on May 16 around 9:15 in the morning. The gobbler had 9 inch beard and weighed approximately 23 pounds. The culmination of a lot of hard work, adaption and modification. Rich documented his adaptations in a video found by clicking here.
