The hunting permit issued by the village must be in a hunter's possession whenever hunting in the Village.  Permits expire August 31st of each year.  Properties listed on the permits will be verified for appropriate hunting approval and landowner information.

Background Screening


A record check will be done on each hunter.  An applicant with a felony record will not be approved for a gun hunting permit.  A DNR records check will also be completed on each hunter.  If convicted of a DNR violation within the past year, a permit will not be issued.  Due to background screening of hunting permits, the approval of the application may take up to 48 hours to process.  If you have any questions, please contact Carol Knope at (262) 532-8760.
