Landowner Permits

Landowners owning 5 or more contiguous acres in the management zone may hunt during the landowner season on their property with the landowner permit.

Hunters may hunt on these properties with the purchase of the CWD hunter permit and written authorization from the landowner.

Both landowner and hunter permits can be purchased for $2 at any license sales location beginning December 1, 2010.

If a landowner doesn't intend to hunt but wants to allow others to hunt on the property, a free permit with no hunting authority can be obtained by calling 1-888-WDNR-INFO.  

Permits are valid beginning January 10, 2011 and will expire on March 31, 2011.
