  • Has a visual field of no more than 20% in his or her best functioning eye
  • Has vision of 20/200 or less after correction in his or her best functioning eye

To apply for a CHAMP, an applicant must use the proper form, which is available from any AGFD office. On the form, the applicant must provide a statement from an M.D. (doctor of medicine) or a D.O.

A watercraft under power may be used to retrieve dead or wounded wildlife, but the discharge of a firearm from a watercraft is prohibited if the watercraft is underway.
  • Use off-road locations in a motor vehicle, if:
    • The use is not in conflict with other laws and …
