Idaho hunt club surprises a teenage boy who became paralyzed during a high school football game with an awesome surprise.

Amid all the bad news that seems to flood our media, this story is a breath of fresh air. Boone Bartlome may be paralyzed, but that won’t stop him from doing what he loves this fall: hunting.

Boone had a tragic injury during his high school football game that left him paralyzed. With an upbeat attitude, Boone continually chooses not to let this challenge get him down.

When hunting season rolled around after the injury, he said, “We’re gonna have to figure something out!”

What happened next will change his life forever.

We cannot respect Northwest Sports Club of Idaho enough for this amazing deed. The club gifted Boone a $16,000 wheelchair that can handle all terrains, so Boone can continue to hunt.

After this act of love, kindness, and thoughtfulness, the young man will still be able to enjoy the great outdoors. It is amazing to see a group do something of such a great magnitude in a world where the media usually highlights such devastating things these days.

“It is an incredible experience every time you go, and to be able to do that again and go out with no worries… it is just a huge blessing and relief for my family and me, and I just cannot wait to get it out there,” commented Boone.

Hopefully, Boone can shoot him a booner this coming hunting season!
