Disabled hunters still have time
to apply for the Oct 6-7 special hunt held on Fort McCoy. But don't wait too long as the application deadline of Aug. 24 is fast approaching.
Individuals participating in this hunt must possess a Class A or Class C Permit issued by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and a valid State of Wisconsin Deer Gun License. Hunters cannot participate in more than one disabled gun-deer hunt within Wisconsin in the same calendar year.
Hunters will receive a Fort McCoy bonus tag allowing them to harvest an antlerless deer. Participants must use their regular Wisconsin Deer Gun carcass tag to harvest an antlered deer.
With the bonus tag, hunters can take up to two deer. Wisconsin bonus tags are not valid on Fort McCoy.
