Wisconsin Bill To Eliminate Minimum Hunting Age

It’s good news for hunters and their young children in Wisconsin. On November 7, the Senate passed a bill that will allow children of any age to participate in a mentored hunt. The bill also allows hunters and mentors to carry more than one firearm. As of right now, you must be 12 years of age or older to buy a hunting license in Wisconsin and at least 10 years old to participate in a mentored hunt. The bill passed 21-12 on Tuesday and will go to Governor Scott Walker next.
