Disabled deer hunters encouraged to sign up for a sponsored hunt before Sept. 1

Eligible hunters interested in participating in the 2014 gun deer hunt for hunters with disabilities are reminded that the deadline to enroll with a land sponsor is Sept. 1.

In 2014, the disabled gun deer hunt will take place Oct. 4 to 12. As of July 1, 74 landowners had enrolled more than 76,000 acres of land across 44 counties for this year's hunt. For a list of sponsors for the 2014 season, please visit and search keywords "disabled deer hunt."

"At a time when it seems to be getting harder and harder to find a place to hunt on private lands, it's great to see such generosity shown by these sponsors who open their lands for this special opportunity," DNR assistant big game ecologist Dan Kaminski said. "This year, we have exceeded the total acreage of land enrolled in the 2011 and 2012 disabled gun deer hunts, and are on par with the amount enrolled in 2013."

Hunters should contact sponsors directly and be prepared to 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. Hunters must also possess a 2014 gun deer license.

It is important to note that some properties are able to accommodate more hunters than others.

"Some of the smaller properties may only allow a few hunters this season, so hunters who have not already enrolled should be prepared to call multiple sponsors in various counties to determine remaining availability," Kaminski said.

Deer hunters are encouraged to check out the 2014 deer season frequently asked questions page for more information. The FAQ feature provides brief responses to a wide variety of deer hunting questions, ranging from deer management unit boundaries to antlerless permits. To view the FAQ page, visit and search keyword "deer."
