(12/12/13) Wisconsin will have a new cross-bow hunting season at the same time as the fall bow-and-arrow deer hunting.
Governor Scott Walker has signed a bill creating the new cross-bow opportunity. Until now, cross-bow hunting was only allowed for seniors over 65 and those with disabilities. Now, folks of all legal hunting ages and abilities can use cross-bows to hunt deer, rabbits, coyotes, and other smaller animals. The season will run from about mid-September to around the first of December each year.
