Wisconsin Hunting Traditions Threatened Please Attend Hearing!

Friday, October 14, 2005

Assembly Bill 677, a bill that would remove barriers to beginning hunters, is scheduled for a hearing in the Assembly Natural Resources Committee on Wednesday, October 19.  Please attend the hearing and show your support for this critical legislation. 

Assembly Natural Resources Committee

Wednesday, October 19 @ 10:00 a.m.

State Capitol Building, Room 417 North

**If you’re unable to attend the hearing, please contact your State Representative

at (800) 362-9472 and ask him/her to support the measure.

AB 677 would allow anyone who wants to try hunting to do so before taking a hunter safety course, as long as they are supervised by an experienced licensed hunter. The bill would also repeal the current law that prohibits a youth under 12 from receiving firearms training at a range.

AB 677 would also repeal the ban on having an uncased and unloaded firearm in a vehicle that is sitting still. No longer will hunters be ticketed for setting their unloaded gun on the tailgate of their truck while preparing for the day’s hunt.

Again, please contact your Representative and ask him/her to support AB 677.
