We all love the Montana outdoors. With the onset of COVID, providing greater access to the outdoors for all Montanans has become even more important. COVID also brought many challenges, particularly to our nation’s military veterans. We have the chance to eliminate some of those challenges facing the veteran community and expand their access to the outdoors and our proud hunting tradition.
Passing Senate Bill 111 would allow Montana’s disabled citizens — including disabled veterans — to hunt with a crossbow during archery season in the state. Further, this greater choice will adhere to the intent of the American with Disabilities Act and lead to more opportunity in the field for our disabled citizens.
