Hunters may apply through Friday, Oct. 20, to hunt in Lion’s Den Gorge Nature Preserve in the Town of Grafton during the gun deer season this year.
    A lottery system will be used to select 10 hunters who may hunt at the county park during the gun deer season, which runs from Nov. 18 to 26.
    The hunters will be selected on Monday, Oct. 23, with preference given to Ozaukee County residents.  Those selected must pay a $65 fee for their permit.
    Hunters will be refunded $32.50 of the fee if they return the county’s hunting report and survey by the designated time.
    They are also eligible for a $32.50 refund if they provide proof of taking a doe from the property.
    Lion’s Den will be closed to the public during the gun deer season.
    There won’t be a lottery for bow hunters. However, they must obtain authorization from the county to hunt in Lion’s Den during the bow season, which runs from Nov. 27 through Jan.7. These authorizations may be completed anytime during the season.
    To obtain authorization and lottery forms for the bow or gun-hunting seasons, visit the Planning and Parks Department at the Ozaukee County Administration Center, 121 W. Main St., Port Washington, call the department at 284-8257 or 238-8257 or e-mail requests to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .Daily Press
