Applications to host deer hunt for those with disabilities due June 1

MADISON -- Sponsors and landowners interested in hosting a gun deer hunt for hunters with disabilities are encouraged to apply by June 1. Applications can now be submitted to the Department of Natural Resources online.
“Submitting applications by June 1 allows us to compile a list of sponsors in plenty of time for sponsors, landowners, and hunters to start planning their hunts,” said Scott Roepke, assistant big game ecologist for the Department of Natural Resources.
Sponsors are encouraged to submit their applications using the new online process search keywords disabled deer hunt. If sponsors do not have access to the online application, hard copies are available at DNR service centers or by calling Scott Roepke at 608-261-7588.
“The online application streamlines the process for both the hunt sponsors and allows interested hunters to see which properties are enrolled in the hunt sooner than in previous years,” said Roepke.
In 2012, 93 sponsors worked with landowners to make nearly 75,000 acres of land open to hunters with disabilities. These sponsors and landowners provided opportunities for more than 450 hunters.
“The Gun Deer Hunt for Hunters with Disabilities Program first began in 1990 to provide an opportunity to hunt deer while mild temperatures persist and mobility is relatively unhampered,” said Roepke. “These hunts are sponsored by private individuals or organizations and almost entirely take place on privately-owned lands.”
This year’s gun hunt for hunters with disabilities will occur Oct. 5 to 13.Landowners and sponsors have the option to limit the hunt to certain days within that time period.
Hunters interested in participating in the hunt can find a list of sponsors on the DNR website after June 1. Hunters are encouraged to contact sponsors as soon as possible so that the sponsors can begin to plan for the hunt. Sponsors are required to submit a list of participating hunters no later than Sept. 1. The list of participating hunters can also be submitted online, similar to the sponsor application.
“We would like to thank all of the hunt sponsors, landowners, and volunteers for their dedication to this great event. Without them, this hunt would not be possible,” Roepke said.

Sturgeon larvae from joint project to restore spawning sturgeon to ancestral grounds.

Evidence of sturgeon natural reproduction observed at Keshena Falls

KESHENA, Wis. – For the first time in more than a century, there is evidence that sturgeon are naturally-reproducing at Keshena Falls.
In a survey conducted last night, fisheries staff with the Menominee Indian Tribe, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service captured 10 larval sturgeon. The larvae are the result of a joint project to restore spawning lake sturgeon to their ancestral spawning grounds at Keshena Falls and the upper Wolf River within the Menominee Indian Reservation. This objective is being met through the capture and upstream transfer of 100 sturgeon per year for 10 years, with the second year recently being completed.
“The capture of sturgeon larvae at Keshena Falls is a historic event and shows that the joint efforts between the Wisconsin DNR and the Menominee Indian Tribe are yielding successful results,” explained DNR sturgeon biologist Ryan Koenigs. “Sturgeon have not only spawned at Keshena Falls the last two years, but we have now been able to document successful natural reproduction as well.”
Annual spawning runs of sturgeon below the falls ended in the late 1800s with the construction of two dams downstream. Sturgeon are culturally important to the Menominee Tribe and current efforts are aimed at reconnecting tribal membership with their native culture Tribe.
“This is a historic day for the Menominee Nation. Once again, history has repeated itself with the return of the Sturgeon to Keshena Falls. The Menominee people are grateful to the Creator for this day,” said Tribal Chairman Craig Corn. “The dedication of a few tribal members and members of the federal government and state government helped form the model of collaboration, and today we get to see the benefits of those efforts. So today, be thankful and joyful for the sturgeon that they found their way home.”
