Wheelchair Ice Fishing
by Ryan Grassley | February 05, 2021
On February 1st 2020 the Disabled Outdoorsman USA hosted an ice fishing event at Strawberry Reservoir in Utah. It was a beautiful sunny day on the ice. Wheelchair users used Action Trackchairs and an Emma X3 to get around. I don’t know how many fish were caught, but I do know that friendships and memories were made and that is really what it’s all about.
At Home in the Snow
We have been lucky to participate in several winter events with the Emma X3 all terrain wheelchair. Often thought of as a summer product the X3 does a great job rolling over snow and ice as well. In those dreary winter months it’s more important than ever to get outside and soak up some sunshine when the weather allows.
Disabled Outdoorsmen USA is an awesome group who work with people of different abilities to get them out enjoying nature. DOUSA has a few different chapters in the United States. If you are interested in hunting or fishing I recommend linking up with them on facebook to stay informed of future activities.
