SB 265 & AB 270 : Best Practices for Hunter Safety

Bill Description

Comprehensive hunter education programs ensure that every Wisconsinite has access to the same information about hunter safety and ethics-related responsibilities. SB 265 would require the DNR to offer in-person field training for Wisconsinites under 18 who wish to receive their hunter education certification. This is an important addition to current requirements, and will help ensure every hunter is proficient in safety and ethics practices critical to maintaining our sporting heritage.
