21.1 - Assess interagency opportunities for improving and enhancing hunting opportunities for the disabled

Text from the Recreational Hunting and Wildlife Conservation Plan, 2008, Page 21

Assess interagency opportunities for improving and enhancing hunting opportunities for the disabled; provide access to difficult, or impossible to reach federal lands; incorporate hunting and recreational shooting into federal agencies' planning processes. Revise BLM/USDA Forest Service management plans to designate shooting areas.

Assessment of Status: Partially Complete

Progress has been made by the National Park Service and the US Fish and Wildlife Service to continue to enhance opportunities for hunters with disabilities. In addition, hunting is being incorporated into agencies' planning processes. The WHHCC has worked on addressing recreational shooting in management plans. These examples, though, are site specific and there has been no nationally coordinated effort. Additionally, further work remains to make public lands public and to ensure the opportunities for shooting areas.
