-- Qualified Wisconsin hunters with disabilities have until Sept. 1 to line up a sponsor so they can participate in a special gun deer hunt this October.
A sponsor list for the 2010 gun Deer Hunt for Hunters with Disabilities is now available at http://dnr.wi.gov/org/land/wildlife/HUNT/DEER/DDHunt/ddhsponsor.pdf . Hunters with disabilities must contact sponsors directly and get signed up by Sept. 1, 2010.
Hunters with a valid Class A permit, a long-term Class B permit that authorizes shooting from a vehicle, or a Class C Disabled Hunting permit are eligible to participate in this special hunt Oct. 2 to 10.
The disabled hunt is the first gun deer hunt of the season and is scheduled to provide hunters with disabilities easier access and fewer weather-related difficulties. The only other deer hunters in the woods during the Oct. 2 to 8 time period are archery deer hunters. There will be a statewide youth gun deer hunt on Oct. 9 and 10.
