Wheelchair-bound hunters will take to the field at Lake Sakakawea State Park Nov. 17-18, for the park’s 11th annual Wheelchair Hunt.

The park will be closed, including the campgrounds and trail systems, from sundown Nov. 16 through sundown Nov. 18. Park staff will be in the office during the weekend to answer any questions.

The hunt, held the second weekend of the deer gun season, is open to people permanently confined to a wheelchair. Due to the nature of the hunt and preparations to set up blinds to meet the individual needs of each hunter, those wishing to participate must contact the park. Participation is limited.

Lake Sakakawea State Park is located just north of Pick City.

For more details about the hunt call Lake Sakakawea State Park at (701) 487-3315. More information can be found online at www.parkrec.nd.gov.
