Sponsors are encouraged to enroll at least 60 acres of land and must allow at least three hunters to use their land during the Oct. 5 to 13 hunt.

In 2018, more than 81 landowners in 45 counties enrolled roughly 78,000 acres of hunting land, providing opportunities for over 400 participants to enjoy hunting when the weather is more conducive to mobility in the woods for people with special challenges.

For an online application, visit dnr.wi.gov and search for keywords "disabled deer hunt." For a physical application, please contact Matthew Gross, DNR Assistant Big Game Ecologist, at 608-261-7588

A full list of hunt sponsors will be available on the DNR website after June 1. Interested hunters are encouraged to contact sponsors as soon as possible to determine space availability. Each hunter may sign up with no more than one hunt sponsor.

For more information, interested hunters and sponsors are encouraged to contact Gross by phone or e-mail at Matthew.Gross@wisconsin.gov.
