MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Applications are now available for Fort McCoy's fall deer and turkey hunts.

The fort's 2013 fall turkey season and deer archery season both begin Sept. 14. The fort's gun deer season will run from Nov. 23 through Dec. 1.

Hunters can download application materials from the fort's website, request them via email or pick them up during a visit to the fort.

Applicants will need a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources customer number.

Applications must be received in the fort's permit sales office by June 14 or postmarked by that same date. Fort officials will select successful applicants through a lottery.

The fort is located between Sparta and Tomah in western Wisconsin.
