Wisconsin votes to add minimum hunting age

A local member of the Conservation Congress is in the minority opinion when it comes to adding a minimum age to hunt in Wisconsin. The annual meeting of Conservation Congress was on April 8th and it was the first time Wisconsinites could vote online in the questionnaire from the DNR. One of the big topics of debate was a question asking if Wisconsin should make it illegal for a person younger than 10 years old to get a hunting license. Voters overwhelmingly were in support of creating that law. This does not mean that the law is in place, it requires legislation to enact it. Dick Baudhuin, a member of Conservation Congress from Sturgeon Bay, has mixed feelings on the vote. Some kids are ready to hunt at six years old while some people are never ready to obtain a hunting license.



Seventy of the 72 counties in Wisconsin were in favor of the minimum age requirement. Voters were also in favor of making the Mink River in Door County a fish refuge.
