Welcome to our fishing opportunities page. If you are a disabled sportsperson and would like to participate in some of the activities in the state of Wisconsin that are set up to help the disabled enjoy the outdoors, then you have come to the right place. The journey begins by applying for a disabled permit. There are three levels of permits available in Wisconsin. There is Class A, Class B, and Class C disabled permits. If you are partially disabled you may also qualify for a Crossbow Permit. To find out which permit would most suit your disability please read the WDNR booklet entitled "What You Should Know About Permits For People With Disabilities" Once you have thoroughly read the booklet and decide what permit would most suit your needs you can print out an application from the links below. In order to view the brochure "What You Should Know About Permits For People With Disabilities" and the applications, you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader. You can download Adobe Acrobat Reader from the Adobe website at:
