DNR Seeking Landowners To Host Hunt For Those With Disabilities

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is looking for landowners to host hunters with disabilities for the Gun Deer Hunt For Hunters With Disabilities, which will take place Oct. 5-13, 2024.

To be part of the Gun Deer Hunt For Hunters With Disabilities program, landowners must have at least 60 acres available, be able to host at least three hunters and also complete an online application by July 1, 2024. The DNR asks interested landowners to fill in all the property information fields on the application.

“Year after year, this special hunt provides hunters with disabilities the opportunity to deer hunt during a time and place that is more accessible,” said Brooke VanHandel, DNR assistant deer and elk specialist. “We are so thankful for our landowner sponsors who are willing to partner with hunters and open their properties to allow more individuals to continue Wisconsin’s deer hunting tradition.”

The Gun Deer Hunt For Hunters With Disabilities began in 1992. It provides hunting opportunities for approximately 400 hunters each year. This hunt is only possible with the generous support of landowner sponsors.
