 Misssion Statement
Our mission is to provide outdoor recreational activities for Disabled American Veterans, disabled individuals and disabled youth in Minnesota. Because of their disabilities, the individuals and groups that we help don’t have enough funds, volunteers or help to do these things. Often times these handicapped people, who are family, friends and neighbors, do not have the opportunity to do many of the activities that others enjoy. Our goal is to help them to enjoy these actives that people who don’t have disabilities enjoy and to improve their quality of life, to help them feel they are not forgotten. Be it lack of funds or volunteers or the handicap accessible places to enjoy the outdoor recreation that others do.


You Can Help us Change Lives
People who live with disabilities are often reminded of their limitations. Would you like to help them turn that around, and remind them of what recreational opportunities they are truly capable of?

We provide safe, guided, hands-on outdoor experiences. We give friends, family, and the entire community a way to participate with those with disabilities in an open friendly way.


Help us Build Community
It's people just like you, the local folks, the local community that helps Midwest Outdoors Unlimited reach out to those with disabilities and help get them outdoors. You are welcome to get involved.

23th Annual Deer Hunt Call for Applications
 

Options and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service in collaboration with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is pleased to announce that applications for the 23th Annual Accessible Deer Hunt for people with disabilities to be held at Rydell National Wildlife Refuge are ready to be released. The dates of the hunt will be October 11, 12, and 13. This year’s hunt will be open for buck or doe.

 
Rydell National Game Refuge, located south of Mentor, Minnesota, offers hunters with disabilities a unique experience by providing the opportunity to hunt in one of the most accessible wildlife refuges in the Nation. Rydell has miles of paved trails in addition to hard-packed trails. It is large enough to accommodate up to 20 hunters, having enough land so that risks associated with deer hunting are minimized. The refuge has all terrain vehicles with accessible trailers to transport hunters to and from stand locations as well as a limited number of accessible hunting platforms available.

 
Hunters are responsible for travel to and from the refuge, their sleeping accommodations while at the hunt, purchasing their license, and providing for their personal needs such as warm clothes, guns, ammo, attendants, etc. Hunt organizers will assist hunters with getting from the refuge headquarters to and from their hunting site, providing volunteers to assist with the handling of the animal after it is shot (if requested), and meals. Meals will consist of a noon meal prior to hunting and an evening meal once the hunter has come back from hunting. If more applications are received than spots available applicants will be selected based on severity of disability, ability to hunt in other locations other than the Rydell hunt, hunting experience as a person with a disability, and hunting experience at Rydell Refuge. If all is equal a random drawing will take place.

 
Anyone interested in applying for this years hunt may go to http://www.optionsoutdoors.org/events/75 for further information or may contact Options for a hunting application packet by calling (800) 726-3692. Applications must be postmarked by Sept. 8, 2018. Questions can be directed to Randy @ (800) 726-3692
