Hunters planning to participate in the gun deer hunt for people with disabilities are reminded to take three actions before Sept. 1.

1)      Visit and search keywords “disabled deer hunt,” to find a list of hunt sponsors. At least 90 sponsors have enrolled over 72,000 acres of property in 50 counties to date.

2)      Contact a participating sponsor directly and ask for permission to participate in their hunt.

3)      Sign up with the sponsor by Sept. 1. Be prepared to supply your name and contact information.

Hunting space is limited on some properties, so hunters are encouraged to contact sponsors as soon as possible.

Hunters must possess a valid Class A, long-term Class B that authorizes shooting from a vehicle, Class C or Class D Disabled Hunting Permit and a current gun deer hunting license to participate in the disabled deer hunt.

This year’s gun hunt for hunters with disabilities will occur Oct. 5 to 13. Hunters are allowed to shoot either antlered or antlerless deer during this hunt with the appropriate permit(s). Please check the 2013 Deer Hunting Regulations for more information.

If you are a hunt sponsor, please submit your list of hunters using the new online process which can be found at, keywords “disabled deer hunt.” If sponsors do not have access to the online form, hard copies are available at DNR service centers or by calling Scott Roepke at 608-261-7588.

Sponsors should submit the list of participating hunters no later than Sept. 1.
