Hunts for Hunters with Disabilities
The refuge offers three shotgun deer hunts and one archery hunt in a designated part of the refuge for hunters with disabilities. Hunters must have a Class A, B, C or D permit for the shotgun hunts; and a Class A, B, C, D or crossbow permit in order to be eligible for the archery hunt. Note, hunters who are over age 65 do not need a special crossbow permit. Also, hunters do not necessarily have to use a crossbow during the archery hunt. All of these permits can be obtained from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. Ten hunting blinds are available for use during the shotgun hunts.

Learn to Hunt Waterfowl
No waterfowl hunting is allowed on the Horicon National Wildlife Refuge except for selected youth participants of the Learn to Waterfowl program. The Learn to Hunt programs introduce novice hunters - both youth and adults - to a variety of hunting experiences with the aid of an experienced hunting mentor.
