    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- The Army Corps of Engineers will take applications through Aug. 15 for the 2012/2013 special deer and duck hunts that provide accessibility to mobility impaired hunters. The hunters will be selected via a random drawing in September.

    Eligible applicants must be non-ambulatory individuals with a permanent physical condition that severely impairs their mobility from either paralysis or amputation of one or both of the lower extremities, which requires assistance from a wheelchair, braces, crutches or other similar aids of mobility.

    A list of hunt locations, dates, allowable methods of harvest, and points of contact are provided in this notice. To obtain an application packet or get more information on a particular hunt, please contact the appropriate hunt coordinator.
