The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources reminds eligible hunters hoping to participate in the 2022 gun deer hunt for hunters with disabilities to contact and confirm their hunting location with a hunt sponsor before Sept. 1.

Sponsors have enrolled nearly 70,000 acres of land across 40 counties for this year's hunt Oct. 1-9. To participate in the hunt, hunters should contact sponsors directly. All sponsors are listed at widnr.widen.net/s/ssdqsfx6xp/disdeersponsors .

Some properties can accommodate more hunters than others, so hunters are advised to contact potential sponsors as early as possible to determine availability.

Eligible hunters may sign up for one sponsored property per year and must possess a gun deer license. To be eligible, hunters must possess a valid Class A, C or D disabled permit or qualifying Class B permit.
