New Hunting Bill


Madison WI (WXOW) - The State Assembly passed a Bill designed to boost participation in Hunting and Fishing in Wisconsin. The sweeping legislation would create steep discounts for first-time license applicants, set up high school credits for students who complete a DNR Hunter Safety Program, and create adult-only hunting and trapping education courses. Under the bill, license fees for first-time resident hunters would drop to just $5. Fees for non-resident hunters would also drop about 50%. The Bill passed on a bipartisan 84-12 vote.
