UNDATED, WI (WXOW) - A Wisconsin Senate Committee is scheduled to consider a bill that would expand crossbow use by deer hunters.
The bipartisan measure would create a crossbow license and a crossbow season to run concurrent with the archery deer season.
It would allow hunters of all legal ages and of all physical abilities to use crossbows to hunt deer in the state.
The measure is supported by the Wisconsin Wildlife Federation, Wisconsin Crossbow Federation, National Rifle Association and Hunters Rights Coalition.
The measure easily passed the assembly on a unanimous vote in June.
The full senate could pass it next month.
It would need to be signed by Governor Scott Walker before becoming law.
