MADISON -- Sponsors and landowners interested in hosting a gun hunt for deer hunters with disabilities are reminded of the fast approaching June 1 deadline to sign up their lands for the October 2017.
Sponsors are required to enroll at least 60 acres of land and must allow at least 3 disabled hunters access during the October 7-15 hunt.
In 2016, more than 70 landowners in 48 counties enrolled roughly 79,000 acres of hunting land to provide opportunities for over 400 participants to take part in the gun deer hunt for hunters with disabilities.
