Vandenhouten experiences successful Gun Deer Hunt for Disabled

A Luxemburg resident and college student had the opportunity to harvest a trophy buck this past weekend during Wisconsin’s DNR Gun deer hunt for hunters with disabilities.  Madison Vandenhouten, a 2018 graduate of Luxemburg-Casco and a freshman at UW Stevens Point, participated and bagged an eight-point buck on Saturday at the sponsoring Luxemburg Sportsman Club.  Vandenhouten says the organization did a great job in helping her pursue her passion for hunting.



Vandenhouten, 21, hunted Saturday with her uncle, who introduced her to the sport when she was 12 years old.  She has been unable to hunt for the past five years due to medical issues that affect her balance.  Madison shot the deer about 70 yards across the river and received help from Luxemburg Sportsman Club members to field dress the buck that fell about 30 yards from her stand.  The Luxemburg Sportsman Club is one of 90 sponsors in Wisconsin for the gun hunt for hunters with disabilities program
