Hi this is Jake from Oregon

Hey EHJ forum friends! This is Jake, and I've been a long time subscriber to the EHJ magazine, but this is my first time hopping on the forum. 12 years ago I had a freak accident that left me a quadriplegic. Since then I've learned to use the limited body function I have to hunt deer, elk, red stag, and exotic game in states that I'd never experienced when I was able bodied. I hope to bring a unique perspective to you all of you hunters about how to use your mind to think creatively and problem solve.

I'm also a rep for a new sponsor of this site, Spartan Precision Equipment. We make carbon bipods and tripods that weigh less and do more. Use me as a resource, and I'll answer any questions you might have. My dream is to figure out the logistics of how to do a hunt internationally. Maybe a visit to England to hunt roe deer, a mule deer in Sonora, or the stretch goal of hunting a cape buffalo in Africa. Arranging a trip like this with all the obstacles associated with my disability is hard, but overcoming challenges is part of what makes hunting interesting.

Say hi if you would like to try an outrageous hunt one day, or you've ever hunted in Oregon. Bonus points if you know where my hometown of Dufur is 😉

I know where Dufur is. In the late 70s Oregon had the first state turkey hunt. It was a drawing and I drew a tag and hunted the White River area...not too far away...good luck with your hunts. I can tell you get it, it is all about being out there...

Thanks for your kind words! Wow, what a small world. My dad lives just a couple miles from the White River area, and I've hunted that place extensively. That's really cool about it being the site of the 1st Turkey hunt in Oregon, I didn't know thatThat's really cool about it being the site of the 1st Turkey hunt in Oregon, I didn't know that

Thanks, I'm happy to be here Travis! If I can't get out in the field to go hunting right now, I at least want to talk about it to tide me over lol
Absolutely, I think all of us on here might understand a little about your passion. Being an ethical, fair chase hunter isn't a seasonal sport, it's a lifestyle. I get frustrated with people that treat hunting as if it's just some kind of pass time one does in the fall. They will guilt trip you about missing work for one week a year or a church service a couple weekends a year and attempt to brain wash you into feeling guilty about hunting. If hunting is who you are then you have nothing to be ashamed of. Keep on keeping on! Inspire and influence others to do more. We have a culture that is under attack. What are we doing to help defend it? I like what I'm seeing Jake. Keep up the outstanding Work!
