On Tuesday, November 7th, Assembly Bill 455 passed through the Wisconsin state Senate with a vote of 21-12, continuing efforts to build upon the success of the safe and successful mentored hunting program that Wisconsin has had since 2009. Assembly Bill 455 previously passed through the Wisconsin Assembly with a vote of 57-32 last week, and now heads to Governor Scott Walker’s desk for his approval.
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 of firearms or bows that a mentor and the apprentice hunter may have in their possession while hunting.
