Wisconsin: New Definition of “Muzzleloader” Could Improve Hunting by Paving the Way for Technological Innovation

On February 14th, Assembly Bill 632 passed out of the Committee on Sporting Heritage on a vote of 11-1 and is expected to be considered by the entire assembly later this month. This legislation establishes a new definition for “muzzleloaders” that would allow for the use of innovative technological advancements that could benefit sportsmen, making the use of muzzleloaders safer and more ethical. Please contact your assembly member and ask them to SUPPORT AB 632 by clicking the Take Action button below.

AB 632 defines a “muzzleloading firearm”, as it applies to hunting, to be a firearm that can shoot a projectile loaded exclusively from the muzzle. Muzzleloading firearms are permitted in certain instances, however the definition was outdated. The bill would amend a portion of the administrative code to include the new definition of “muzzleloading firearm” as it applies in the context of hunting. The updated definition will address some of the confusion individuals may have regarding which firearms they can use while hunting.

Another benefit of the bill is that it would allow for the introduction of new muzzleloading technology. One example is the Federal Firestick which provides improvements like moisture resistance, shot-to-shot consistency, and a simplified loading and unloading process. These enhancements make muzzleloading firearms safer to use, helping hunters from all walks of life participate in primitive weapons seasons they would otherwise not be able to experience. Imprecise language should not constrict people’s choice of firearms, nor should it prevent them from enjoying their passion for hunting and the outdoors. The improvements included in AB 632 would benefit the people who need them without creating any unfair advantages

At a time when hunter participation is on the decline, the NRA seeks to increase recruitment, retention, and reactivation (R3). Our extensive history of supporting wildlife conservation and hunter’s rights aligns with supporting legislation like AB 632.

Again, please contact your assembly member and ask them to support AB 632.
