Disabled deer hunting
Wisconsin law provides for a variety of hunting, fishing and recreational use permits designed to help people with disabilities enjoy the state's natural resources. Find out how you can sponsor and/or participate in a gun deer hunt for people with disabilities.
Thank you to the sponsors and hunters that signed up for the 2016 gun deer hunt for hunters with disabilities. With almost 79,000 acres on more than 70 properties in 48 counties, many hunters had great success. Sponsors, remember to sign up for the 2017 hunt by June 1, 2017.
