July 17, 2012

September 1 registration deadline set for landowners sponsoring event

MADISON - Hunters with disabilities wanting to participate in a special October gun-deer hunt are encouraged to contact as soon as possible any landowner sponsoring an event to make arrangements.

Landowners are required to submit their lists of participating hunters in the Disabled Deer Hunt to the Department of Natural Resources by September 1. The list of sponsoring landowners for the 2012 hunt is available on the Department of Natural Resources website, dnr.wi.gov, keyword search: "disabled deer hunt."

Now in its 22nd year, the Disabled Deer Hunt aims to give hunting opportunities to those facing mobility issues when temperatures are milder. Most of the hunts are on private lands and are sponsored by private citizens or organizations.

Hunters with a valid Class A permit, a long-term Class B permit that authorizes shooting from a vehicle, a Class C or Class D Disabled Hunting permit are eligible to participate in this special hunt, which will take place Oct. 6-14.
