    Hey guys, I'm trying to help my friend Courtney get a Track Chair so she can hunt again. Please take the time to read her story, donate if you can, and share! Thank you!

    I am on a Women Hunt Too facebook page. Mind if I share it there?

    I'll add some to help, just need to get a prepaid card to do so (don't use mine online).

    I shared the story. Being a country girl myself (4h and hunting) I feel a connection. I only can hope this will happen for her!

    This is great. You are an awesome friend. I would much rather donate my money to something like this than all those charities you hear about where a small fraction of your dollar actually goes to the cause. 10-20 bucks (or more) will go a long ways guys if enough people pitch in. I will be donating soon.

    coloelk, people on fieldandstream.com question the legitimacy of this, and rightfully so. Nowadays people will stoop to any level to pull of a scam. Is it possible to get some concrete info on Courtney like her last name and maybe a news article of the accident? If that's too personal I understand but raising 12k is a lot of money and maybe more info needs to come out to confirm the story to get people comfortable donating. On the gofunds page it says there are no refunds and only donate to people you know and trust so a scam is possible although I believe you to be sincere. Thanks I'm just trying to get more $ for her chair is all.

    I totally understand people having questions. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I am trying to find a link to the many news stories about the accident at the time. Having trouble finding anything since it was 11 years ago. Her name is Courtney Ferrall. I would share the names of the kids who passed away also, but I don't feel that would be fair to their families to use their kids' names to help Courtney.

    Here you go. They misspelled Court's last name in the article.

    I contacted Joshua Carney "son of the south" about this...pretty sure he has this chair, he said he will see what he can do!

    It is on ArcheryTalk. I tried to post it in the general archery discussion, where it would get the most views. The mods moved it to their sharing and caring forum, and removed the link from my post.
