James Cap

James Cap, a quadriplegic since a Nov. 4, 1979 high school football accident, who hunts from his wheelchair is still wearing his hunting license as he watches television after returning home in Manville, N.J., from the shed where he hunts with an apparatus that he uses to aim and fire his shotgun. 

Recently Cap won a two-and-a-half-year legal battle to allow him to use a shotgun specially mounted on his wheelchair and operated by a breathing tube.
