Manchin said this year's total / A wheelchair was no deterrant as Paul Smith, of Little Bull Run, bagged this nice five-point buck on opening day, just as the sun was coming up. Smith, who has been confined to a wheelchair since an automobile accident ten years ago, didn't let opening day get too old as he killed the buck on the neighboring Smith farm at about 7:30 a.m.. Smith uses an electric wheelchair to get around the family home, and with the help of an ac- qunintance in Charleston, developed a mount for his rifle on the chair. The mount offers a full range of vision so that Smith can get a shot from anywhere. Smith noted, "I've hunted all my ]fie and love to hunt." He didn't see that being a quadrapleglc should keep him from enjoying the sport that he loves. He said that he hunts deer, squirrels, ground hogs, and enjoys every nfluute of it.
