Nonresident seniors can use crossbows for turkey, bear in Wisconsin

From the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources

-- Beginning this fall, nonresident senior citizens will have the same privileges as Wisconsin residents for hunting a number of game species with a crossbow.

A bill passed by the Wisconsin legislature which took effect on Feb. 26, 2010, allows non-resident senior citizens to use a crossbow to hunt turkey, bear, and small game with a crossbow under the authority of the appropriate license.

Last year, the legislature granted non-residents age 65 and older the privilege to use a crossbow for hunting deer and small game under the authority of a archery license, the same as state residents.

The changes make the laws regarding use of crossbows by senior citizens the same for both residents and non-residents for hunting all species. If a person is not age 65, he or she must hold an appropriate disabled hunting permit which authorizes them to use a crossbow, he added. For more information, contact Tom VanHaren at (608)266-3244.
