Youth & Disabled Hunt Planned
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks (KDWP), and the Geary County Sportsman Club are planning the Seventh Annual Assisted Deer Hunt at Milford Reservoir. This year's hunt is scheduled for Dec. 10, 11, and 12, which is the second weekend of the regular firearms deer season.
The hunt will take place in the Curtis Creek and Milford State Park areas and is limited to mobility-impaired persons with permanent disabilities. Individuals confined to wheelchairs will be given priority in the selection process.
The hunt will be limited to nine hunters. All nine hunters will be able to participate each day of the hunt. Should applicants exceed hunter capacity, a random selection process will be implemented.
Those interested in applying for the Assisted Deer Hunt should contact the Milford Lake Corps of Engineers Project Office at (785) 238-5714 to receive an application form. Applications should be completed and submitted by October 20 to allow time for the selection process and notification of successful applicants.
