Wisconsin Hunter Mentoring Bill!

Tuesday, January 24, 2006

A recent study has found that the future of hunting in Wisconsin is in serious jeopardy. For every 100 hunters lost due to old age or other factors, only 53 replace them. The research determined that the primary reason for Wisconsin's discouraging hunter recruitment rate is the current minimum hunting age. Many kids have already developed other interests by the time they turn 12.

Assembly Bill 586 has been introduced to provide parents more discretion with regard to deciding when their children are mature enough to hunt as long as they are within arm's reach of an adult mentor who meets the hunter education requirement and there is only one firearm between the two. This is known as "mentored hunting." Experience in other states shows that mentored hunting is the safest form of hunting. Thirty states trust parents to decide when their children are mature enough to hunt, including most of Wisconsin's neighbors. Their recruitment rates are far higher.

Please call your State Senator, toll-free at 800-362-9472 and respectfully urge them to support AB 586, the Hunter Mentoring Bill. Also, please encourage them to support the Personal Protection Act. The future of hunting is counting on you to act...
