With eligible hunters having until September 1st to contact a hunt sponsor to sign up for the 2021 gun deer hunt for hunters with disabilities, state deer program specialist Jeff Pritzl hopes there’s eventually a Door County sponsor. While the cutoff for sponsors to offer some of their acreage for the October 2nd to October 10th special season has passed, Pritzl says there’s plenty of room for the program to grow on the peninsula. Pritzl adds that it can help some landowners manage deer numbers while also helping someone have a great outdoor experience.
Hunters are allowed to sign up for one property a year, and there are ninety sponsors in Wisconsin. One local sponsor is the Luxemburg Sportsmans Club.
