54.  One of our specialties was hosting handicapped hunters
We had 5 box stands, built two feet above the ground on posts sunk 2 feet down. The stands were 6'x8' with windows and doors. Spread a couple of 5gal buckets of sour corn on the ground a 50-100yds range and there would be 10-20 pigs there inside of 30 min.
Each stand had a radio in it, and when the hunter made his shot he could call us to track and pick up the pig. Most were wheelchair bound, but others had conditions that made it difficult to walk.
I remember one hunter in a wheelchair who only wanted 3 sheets of plywood on the ground with a circle of brush, chest high to him, around it. That was his stand. He would watch them and photograph them. Then when he was ready he would use a 8" barrel .454 Casul and get the one he wanted! We supplied him with a radio, cooler with water/sodas and a lunch. He was a good customer till we lost the place. His last hunt he had upgraded to a .500 Smith & Wesson!
There are ALWAYS a way.
