There is a new law which formulated a hunting mentorship program for novice hunters that will take effect September 1, 2009. The mentor must have a current valid hunting approval, and must have completed a hunter education course if born on or after January 1, 1973.
The fee for hunting approvals issued to youth ages 10 and 11 will be reduced. Anyone 12 years and older who graduates from a Wisconsin Hunter Education class after January 1, 2009, for the first time may receive a free special Antlerless Deer Carcass Tag.
Unless you are a Class C holder (visually handicapped permit owners), it is illegal to use or possess laser sights while hunting. One thing that is highly stressed is to not waste the game, and to not torture it by having it die slowly.
You must make every reasonable effort to retrieve all game killed or crippled. Another compliance which needs to be met is wearing a blazing orange color when going deer hunting.
Not only does it prevent you from being fired at by accident, but it also takes away the suspense from fellow hunters if they feel a deer is approaching. Even Internationally played sports have their own codes of conduct, which are solely there to keep the game fair.
With a ton of amazing attractions, beautiful scenery, and fun things to do, Wisconsin is a hidden gem. People from around the world visit Wisconsin for its peaceful atmosphere, incredible food, and a chance to experience the outdoors.
Before we dive into the gun transport laws in Wisconsin, we need to go over some basic definitions. Any firearm with a stock that is designed to be fired from the shoulder is a long gun.
A handgun is any type of firearm that lacks a stock, is concealable, and can be fired without bracing against the shoulder. The laws surrounding the use of handguns are typically more strict and stringent with harsher penalties and more regulation.
For example, some people might consider a handgun unloaded if there is a magazine in it, but a round isn’t in the chamber. Having to take their guns in and out of a case every time they hopped in the car was a pain, so they changed the law to make it more convenient.
Wisconsin adopts this same idea for its long gun transport laws. If the vehicle is stopped, toucan have a loaded gun on the top or exterior of the car.
In regard to boats, you cannot have a loaded long gun on board unless the motor is not running. The handgun transport laws in Wisconsin have recently been at the center of hot debate.
The law states that you cannot carry a loaded firearm in your vehicle unless it is a handgun. If you have a loaded handgun in your car that isn’t in plain view, it is considered to be a concealed weapon.
Plain sight is defined as having the firearm above the window line and not concealed by any furniture or debris. Toucan also load and carry your pistol in your car, as long as it is in plain sight.
This includes places such as schools, courthouses, police stations, and other government buildings or facilities. Make sure to review these gun laws before planning your next trip or purchasing a new firearm.
Over the years there has been a rising population of deer in urban areas, cities, and suburbs in Wisconsin. Communities have found damage done to wildlife as well as property, and are trying to curb the deer population.
Hunting Legislation Accommodating Urban Deer Population According to the Wisconsin ’s Department of Natural Resources (DNR), wildlife biologists are struggling to keep the herd of deer under control and bring their numbers down because of the damage they are causing. Deer are causing forest degradation, property damage, and more accidents with cars.
This is because hunting is an effective and good tool to curb deer population growth. Extended Gun And Bow Seasons Established In an effort to manage urban deer populations in Wisconsin, the DNR said three metro deer management units were established to provide liberal bag limits for antlerless deer and in some cases a longer gun or bow season.
Make sure to check local ordinances to learn about weapon restrictions before hunting in urban areas. Change in Bow Hunting Laws Outdoor, which reports news geared toward the outdoor enthusiast, said laws for bow hunting in urban areas have changed.
Wisconsin Act 71 changed the restrictions imposed by local governments on hunting. While hunters can still be barred from hunting on city-owned land, they can now hunt within city limits during regular deer bow seasons and no longer need to be certified by city police officials.
Before this, a limited number of hunters were allowed to hunt to manage nuisance deer. Over the years there has been a rising population of deer in urban areas, cities, and suburbs in Wisconsin.
Communities have found damage done to wildlife as well as property, and are trying to curb the deer population. All information presented on our websites should not be construed as medical consultation or instruction.

Goosehunter I recently shot a button buck in the youth season and quickly realized.
I looked in the regulation booklet and found out I can party hunt. Personaly i don't like party hunting too much but my dad says it would be ok if I use his tag on a doe so I figured I might as well try, id just like to be clear on the legs first.
FishBlood&RiverMud Toucan ’t fill his tag unless you are hunting together. Many people have their mom’s and dad’s, brothers and relatives buy tags, and they fill them without the mom having to pick up a gun just, so they can shoot another buck or deer… That is illegal.
Although same crap goes on I’m just waiting for this idiot to post both bucks on Facebook that were taken by bow. Although same crap goes on I’m just waiting for this idiot to post both bucks on Facebook that were taken by bow.
Tegg Doesn’t apply to bow hunting. Although same crap goes on I’m just waiting for this idiot to post both bucks on Facebook that were taken by bow.
I know toucan ’t mix archery & firearms with respect to party hunting but “in general” a party can be defined for firearms hunters and archery hunters hunting in a group at the same time. Tegg

Looks like MN & WI have different rules with respect to party hunting. Mn Reg's: A “party” is defined as any group of two or more licensed deer hunters who are all afield; hunting together at the same time; AND all using firearms (including muzzle loaders) or all using archery.
A mixed group of firearms and archery hunters is considered two separate parties. FishBlood&RiverMud
Although same crap goes on I’m just waiting for this idiot to post both bucks on Facebook that were taken by bow. I’ve just seen it too many times when someone has multiple people’s tags in their pockets.
The party hunting regulation requires that all hunters who intend to tag deer for each other be hunting together, in the field, at the time the deer are taken.
