THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Disabled Deer Hunt Deadline September 1
Hunters who plan to participate in the annual gun deer hunt for hunters with disabilities are reminded to sign up with hunt sponsors no later than Sept. 1.
To participate in the disabled deer hunt, hunters should contact a participating sponsor directly and ask for permission to participate in their hunt. Interested hunters can find a list of sponsors at dnr.wi.gov, and search keywords disabled deer hunt.
Hunters must be signed up with the sponsor by Sept. 1 and will have to provide the sponsor their name and contact information.
This years gun hunt for hunters with disabilities will occur Oct. 5 to 13. Hunters are allowed to shoot either antlered or antlerless deer during this hunt with the appropriate permit(s). Please check the 2013 Deer Hunting Regulations for more information.
To date, 90 sponsors have enrolled over 72,000 acres of property in 50 counties, Roepke said. These are private lands offering great opportunities for up to 3,600 hunters to enjoy deer hunting. Many of these properties are in areas of high deer density.
Hunting space is limited on some properties, so hunters are encouraged to contact sponsors as soon as possible, Roepke said.
Sponsors are encouraged to submit their list of hunters using the new online process which can be found on the DNR web site, keywords disabled deer hunt. If sponsors do not have access to the online form, hard copies are available at DNR service centers or by calling Scott Roepke at 608-261-7588.
