My name is Norm
Sauceman. I am the President and Founder of the DHNA. In 1988, I was
involved in an industrial accident. After 19 operations, I have 26
plates, pins and screws along with 6 bone-graphs, and a lot of pain.
I soon realized that we with disabilities have a hard time accessing
the outdoors. It then became my mission in life to make accessing
the outdoors a reality for disabled hunters.
choose who we are. Maybe not who we have become; maybe not what
was chosen for us by misfortune; but we can choose who we are from
this moment on. When all the cards are dealt, we can either fold
the hand or play with the cards we have before us. I chose to
play, to become a champion. I chose to become a leader. To help
and guide those who are deciding on whether they are going to fold
or play on. Because I was once one who chose to fold. And almost
never played again.
have chosen to be somewhat a servant; to help those who ask for
help from the heart, not the pocket book. I have no funds to give,
just my time. Blessed be the givers for it is they who shall truly
the DHNA as a non-profit/educational/informational organization
dedicated to helping the disabled hunter. I help the disabled
hunter connect with reputable outfitters to help them get into the
woods for a great hunt. I am also in constant contact with
manufacturers and giving input from the field to better their
products for the disabled hunters.
endorses most all types of hunting establishments, INCLUDINGreputable high-fenced hunting establishments. If it were
not for reputable high-fenced operations, some disabled hunters
would not be able to access the outdoors.
I have now had
several articles published in hunting publications here in North America
such as Buckmasters
on-line magazine and Banta's
Online Hunting Magazine for which I am very proud. You may read
the articles I wrote when you browse my website. I am also a certified
scorer for the Buckmasters
BTR and the "Records of Exotics". I have appeared on
a couple of shows including "Bushnell's
Secrets of the Hunt" with Dave Watson and "The Tennessee
Sportsman" with O'Dell Braswell. I am a member of the Pro/Field
staff of most of the product sponsors listed on the product sponsor
page. I am a moderator for Team Realtree and the
Disabled Hunters forum for Bill Jordan. A special thank you to our
our sponsors Innovative Sight and
Sound of Tampa, our Birmingham AL sponsor Twist Technology,
and our Los Angeles sponsor Audio Video Experts
I hope to become the first hunter EVER in history to harvest an
antlered Buck ( goal is a 120 + class - no less than a 6-point)
from every State in the U.S. ! Keep watching for my progress!
