FAIRFAX, Va. - The National Rifle Association is pleased to announce the launch of a nationwide database of hunting and fishing adventures for adaptive shooters.


“Venturing into the outdoors has long been acknowledged as healing for the body and soul,” said NRA National Adaptive Shooting Programs Manager Dr. Joe Logar, PT, DPT. “These benefits can be even more profound for someone experiencing an illness, injury, or disability.”


NRA’s Hunter Services and Adaptive Shooting Programs have maintained a list of organizations offering people with disabilities outdoor opportunities. Now available in a searchable database, any adaptive shooter can easily choose from adventures such as guided whitetail hunts, chartered fishing trips, and accessible hiking trails anywhere across the country.


“Just because you’re dealing with an injury or illness doesn’t mean your outdoor experience has come to an end,” concluded Logar.


Whatever your interest, the organizations featured in NRA’s new database offer a dose of fresh air and sunshine to jumpstart or improve your healing process.
