DNR urges disabled hunters to find sponsors

Wisconsin wildlife officials are reminding disabled hunters planning to participate in a special fall deer hunt to find sponsors by the end of August.

The Department of Natural Resources plans to hold its annual deer hunt for the disabled from Oct. 5 through Oct. 13. Hunters must sign up with a sponsor by Sept. 1 to participate.

Sponsors can be property owners willing to allow disabled hunters on their land or anyone willing to secure permission from a landowner to let a disabled hunter onto his or her property.

Hunters can find a list of sponsors on the DNR’s website.
