Quadriplegic Hunter Wins Right to Kill Things

Jamie-Cap_1540245c

It’s a slow news day in the world of sports, but this story is pretty cool–and I just don’t mean for the horrifying contraption you see above.

That guy there is Jamie Cap, a 46-year-old hunter who also happens to be quadriplegic, the result of a football accident some 30-odd years ago.  But being confined to a wheelchair, without the use of his hands or legs, kind of put the kibosh on Cap’s hunting fun.

But that’s all changed, thanks to a 2 1/2 year legal battle that Cap finally won, which allowed him to own and operate a 12-gauge shotgun.  How you ask?  Via a battery-powered machine that is operated by a breathing tube.

That…is…awesome.

Cap fired his first shot in three decades, an experience he could only describe as “priceless.”

    He’s not confined to a wheelchair. Nor is he wheelchair bound. He does get out of that chair. I wish people would get the terminology right.

    It’s not exactly hunting if he can’t go and get it.. right?

    It sure looks like he’s moving his arms as he’s being raised into the van at :37.
