Going to change my blog address…



I have decided to change my blog address to something more appropriate. I hope this will help people find my blog easier when searching. Skoalongcut served me well but it is time for a new dip.

Here are a couple names that I have come up with:
plegichunter
plegicoutdoors
plegicoutdoorsman
wheelchairhunter
wheelchairoutdoorsman

What do you like? Or do you have any suggestions? Let me know.

Things You Shouldn't Say or Do to Someone Who Uses a Wheelchair

(In no particular order)

1. You’re good looking for someone in a chair.
2. I had to use a wheelchair when I broke my leg, so I know exactly what you are going through.
3. You're an inspiration.
4. I was only parked there for a minute.
5. Everything happens for a reason.
6. Here, let me help you.
7. It's good to see you out.
8. Have you got any more movement?
9. With your effort and attitude, I know you will walk again.
10. Anything with a kindergarten teacher voice or pat on the head.

I found most of these online but added and subtracted some that fit to my experience.

Tag soup for me.


Well, the 2015/16 hunting season has come to a close. I sat 18 times with the crossbow in three different areas searching for Mr. Big Whitetail. I do not have much to show for it except having a great time and learning more about my hunting areas plus what might work better for me. I know one thing I plan on practicing a lot more during the off-season. Last year I didn't do too much shooting. This summer's motto will be shoot more, shoot more often. Plus I hope to get in a food plot. Also, make a couple changes to my stands. I have a few ideas to make things better. Always learning something is better than the alternative. Now it is time to go ice fishing and maybe shoot a coyote or two…
