Deer hunt held for disabled teen

December 4, 2004

Calhoun County- Chris Price doesn't let his spina bifida keep him from doing what he loves, spending the day outdoors.

"It's a lot of fun," says Price.

Saturday, the avid fisherman is spending the day on an all expenses paid deer hunt in Calhoun County sponsored by Quail Unlimited.

"My mom's been through three bouts with cancer and I decided to try to start doing something for some kids," says Derek Fussell, Chairman of the Quail Unlimited.

In addition to getting free reign of a 1,000 acre plantation, Buckmasters American Deer Federation also made it possible for Price hunt with a new gun mount and state-of-the-art hydraulic deer stand.

"Chris is going to harvest him an animal this afternoon. I'm confident of that. Our prayers are with him and we're just tickled to death to have him here in South Georgia," says Steve Brown, regional director for Buckmasters.

"Without people like this we couldn't do it because I can't afford it myself, so it's just been a great thing that they do," says Price's stepfather, Wendell Barron.

Even if he doesn't harvest his first deer in South Georgia, Price says his trip will be an experience he'll never forget.

This is the first time Quail Unlimited has joined with another conservation organization to sponsor a hunt for disabled children.
