Wisconsin Ag Connection - 07/19/2019

Eligible hunters with an interest in participating in the 2019 gun deer hunt for hunters with disabilities are encouraged to contact a land sponsor and sign up for a hunt before the September 1 hunter participation deadline.

As of the June 1 sponsor application deadline, 62 landowners have enrolled nearly 73,000 acres of land across 41 counties for this year's hunt, which takes place October 5-13.

"We are very grateful to the sponsors that are willing to provide opportunities for hunters with special challenges in the field," says Matthew Gross, DNR assistant big game ecologist. "Giving hunters access to over 73,000 acres of land is instrumental in making this unique opportunity a success and continuing Wisconsin's deer hunting tradition."

Hunters or assistants should contact sponsors directly to sign up for a hunt. Interested hunters must provide their name, contact information, and DNR customer ID number.

To be eligible, hunters must possess a valid Class A, Class B long-term permit that allows shooting from a vehicle, or Class C or D disabled hunting permit. Eligible hunters must possess a gun deer license.
