Deer hunt for disabled hunters Oct. 4-5

Fort McCoy again will sponsor an annual deer hunt for disabled persons.

Disabled hunters still have time to apply for the Oct. 4-5 special hunt but are encouraged not to wait too long as the application deadline of Aug. 25 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.

To receive a 2008 Fort McCoy Disabled Hunt Application, e-mail requests to usarmy.mccoy.imcom-northeast.mail.dpw-permit-sales@mail.mil, or send a self-addressed stamped envelope to the Directorate of Public Works, IMNE MCY PWEN (Permit Sales), 2171 South 8th Ave., Fort McCoy, WI 54656-5136.

Questions can be directed to the Fort McCoy Permit Sales Office at (608) 388-3337.

Applications will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications received after the Aug. 25 deadline will be returned.
