New law eliminates minimum hunting age

Local News

With the Wisconsin gun deer season opener just days away, there is a new law impacting young hunters. 

On Monday, Governor Scott Walker signed a bill into law that eliminates the minimum hunting age.

Until this new law, a child had to be at least ten years old. 

The new law also permits hunters and mentors to have more than one gun between them.

Wisconsin is the 35th state to eliminate the minimum hunting age.
