The Jefferson County Parks Department has an opportunity for first time youth hunters to participate in a limited gun deer hunt in portions of Dorothy Carnes County Park. 

There will be one hunter selected for each time period:

Period 2: November 20-23
Period 3: November 25-28 

Applicants will have to specify a preference for the hunt period of their choice on the Jefferson County Youth Deer Hunt application. Each hunter selected will have a 120-acre section of the park to hunt, with 40 acres of lowland woods and marsh adjacent to 80 acres of cropland. 

Selected participants and their chaperones will be required to participate in an online orientation with Jefferson County Park Staff to review the rules of the hunt, hunting boundaries and expectations for access to the property. Applicants will also be required to be first time hunters between the ages of 10 to 14, and have a chaperone with a minimum of 5 years of deer hunting experience present at all times. Eligible hunters will also be required to possess a valid Wisconsin Gun Deer Tag.  

The Jefferson County Parks Department will accept completed applications from qualified hunters September 14-October 6 @ 4:00 PM. Applications will be available in person or on our website https://jeffersonco.seamlessdocs.com/f/t3gov3f9m6zh  Applications will be processed and three hunters will be randomly drawn to participate in the October/November hunts.
