Should disabled veterans be allowed to hunt with accommodations on the land they fought and sacrificed for?
Do you think Montana should allow the disabled community the right to hunt and enjoy the outdoor lifestyle too?
If you answered yes, we need you to take action now.
Senate Bill 111, a bill allowing disabled veterans and individuals to hunt with crossbows during the early fall archery season in Montana, has stalled in the House Human Services Committee. Therefore, we support bringing the bill directly to the House Floor for a vote.
Hunting is an inherent right for all Americans, and that includes veterans and the disabled community.
Simply put, Montana's elected officials should support expanding hunting and outdoor opportunities for disabled veterans and individuals – not limiting it.
