MADISON — Eligible hunters interested in participating in the 2014 gun deer hunt for hunters with disabilities are reminded to contact a land sponsor and enroll before the Sept. 1 deadline.

As of the June 1 deadline, 67 landowners have enrolled more than 73,000 acres of land across 39 counties for this year's deer hunt. In 2014, the disabled gun deer hunt will take place Oct. 4 to 12. For a list of sponsors for the 2014 season, please visit dnr.wi.gov and search keywords "disabled deer hunt."

"We are excited to work with both landowners and hunters to provide this unique opportunity," said assistant big game ecologist Dan Kaminski. "By opening their land for this hunt, these sponsors are instrumental in making Wisconsin's deer hunting tradition accessible to all hunters."

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. As in the past, eligible hunters must also possess a 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 people are advised to contact a potential sponsor as early as possible to determine if space is available," said Kaminski.
