that are willing to work with disabled clients. Please keep in mind that these
places are not completely set up for every disability. Make sure that you
discuss any special accommodations that you require directly with the outfitter
to ensure a good trip and a pleasurable experience.
If you are an outfitter who would like to be included in this page, please contact me. If you are disabled and have used an outfitter that you would like to recommend, please contact me as well at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be aware that this list will not be complete, so contact me with any specific requests.
