According to current legislation, a child of twelve can be legally hunted. Children from 10 years old can only go on a guided hunt with an adult in Wisconsin. The new law would lift that age restriction. The old law also states that only one weapon may be present on a guided hunt. This restriction is now also being lifted, which means that both the adult and the child can carry a weapon.
Proponents of the new law find that parents, and not the government, should determine when children are ready to hunt. Critics wonder why children should be allowed as young as toddlers to enter the armed armed forces. It would make the forest less safe during the hunting season.
The plan was adopted by 57 against 32 votes, with most of the polls being Republicans.
