CHAMP License Application

Brief Description – A Challenged Hunter Access/Mobility Permit (CHAMP) can be issued to a person with a Severe Permanent Disability. This means one or more permanent physical or mental disabilities resulting from amputation, arthritis, autism, blindness, burn injury, cancer, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, intellectual disability, muscular dystrophy, musculoskeletal disorders, neurological disorders, paraplegia, pulmonary disorders, quadriplegia and other spinal cord conditions, sickle cell anemia, and end stage renal disease or a combination of permanent disabilities resulting in comparable substantial functional limitations.

A Challenged Access/Mobility Permit (CHAMP) authorizes the holder with a severe permanent disability to take wildlife from a motor vehicle if it is off the roadway and the engine is off and a watercraft as long as the watercraft is not underway. A CHAMP permit holder must have a valid hunting license when taking wildlife. It also authorizes the holder to use a motor vehicle in off-road locations to wait for game as long as the locations are not in conflict with other laws. A CHAMP permit does not authorize the use of a vehicle to chase or pursue wildlife.
