On Thursday, November 2, Assembly Bill 455 passed through the Wisconsin Assembly with a vote of 57-32, continuing efforts to build upon the success of the safe and successful mentored hunting program that Wisconsin has had since 2009. Assembly Bill 455 is now set to be heard in the Wisconsin Senate. Please contact your state Senator and urge them to SUPPORT this legislation!

Assembly Bill 455 eliminates the requirement that youth be at least ten years of age to hunt under the hunting mentorship program and eliminates the limit on the number firearms or bows that a mentor and the apprentice hunter may have in their possession while hunting.
Your NRA-ILA would like to thank the Assembly members who helped pass this important piece of legislation to promote our hunting heritage. Again, please remember to contact your Senator and ask them to SUPPORT Assembly Bill 455.
