AB-384 (The crossbow bill) just passed the WI senate on a unanimous voice vote. The bill now goes onto the Governor for signing. Beginning this fall, all resident and non-resident hunters will be able to use a crossbow to hunt deer, bear, turkey, small game, predators and rough fish in WI without having to be 65 and older or handicapped. Thanks to everybody that played a role in passage of this outstanding bill. The organizations that have testified in support of the bill to aid its passage and to put this matter to bed in WI are: The Wisconsin Crossbow Federation The Wisconsin Bowhunters Association Wisconsin Traditional archers Wisconsin Bear Hunters Association Wisconsin Wildlife Federation Wisconsin Conservation Congress WI chapters of Safari Club International Grant County sportsman’s alliance Game Getters Sportsmen’s club Dairyland cooperative Coulee archers Bigfoot archers Inc. Wisconsin State Cranberry Growers Association Wisconsin Potato and Vegetable Growers Association Wisconsin Pork Association And many many many Wisconsin Sportsmen that called, sent emails or testified in support of this fine legislation. Talk about a joint effort by a wide range of stakeholders. WOW! :thumbsu: Now that this is done its onto matters of importance and how to address deer management in the state.
