2012 Limited Access Archery Permits for Fall Deer and Turkey Hunting
2013 Archery Hunt
2013 Archery Hunt information will be available mid-July. Please visit this site at that time for application information. Thank you.
Due to the popularity of the Dane County Archery Hunting Program, an online application and
permit selection process was developed to ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to
receive an access permit. Applications are selected through a computer-generated lottery
Applications for Limited Access Archery Permits will be accepted beginning
Wednesday, July 25, 2012 through Tuesday, August 21, 2012 at 11:59 PM. Late applications
will not be accepted.
A nonrefundable $3.00 application fee will be charged for all applications submitted.
The cost of the Access Permit is an additional $12.00 to successful applicants. These costs
cover administration of the program.
The application process registers you for an opportunity to be drawn for an “access-only” permit for one
(1) of the eligible properties. All valid Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WI DNR) deer harvest
tag(s) and/or fall turkey permit are still required to harvest a deer or turkey. Applicants will be able
to select the order of preference for properties for which they would be willing to receive a permit.
Only one application per person may be submitted and only one permit per person will be awarded if
selected in the lottery drawing. If selected, applicants will be awarded their first
available property choice.
Generally, there are more applicants then permits available.
See past lottery statistics.
Hunters (and any accompanying youths) applying for this permit must purchase all
necessary WI DNR licenses and permits and strictly follow all WI DNR hunting rules for
the Management Area in which they will archery hunt. Visit
WI DNR’s website for more information.
