Four bills relating to hunting, regarding minimum hunting age, woodchucks, turkey and pheasant hunting and using a youth antlerless carcass tag, were signed into law by Governor Scott Walker on November 13.

The law takes effect immediately, meaning it will be in place for the next gun deer hunting season, which runs from November 18-26. The mentor and student could have just one gun between them and had to stay within an arm's reach of one another. This bill re-establishes the 2015 Act 100 prohibition for adults from harvesting antlerless deer using a youth antlerless carcass tag under group hunting allowances. Instead, the state is requiring hunters to register their deer either on line or over the phone by 5 p.m. the next night.

Woodchucks can now be hunted under the authority of a small game hunting license and trap woodchucks under a trapping license under Assembly Bill 323.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is also testing for Chronic Wasting Disease in nearby counties. These seasons now close on December 31.

The bill also changes the archer deer season setting the season as open through the Sunday nearest January 6, for metro areas, which now are open through January 31, in addition to all other areas in the state.
