Assembly eliminates Wisconsin’s minimum hunting age

MADISON, Wis. — Residents of any age, even toddlers, could legally hunt in Wisconsin under a bill the Assembly passed that eliminates the state’s minimum hunting age.

Currently, a resident must be at least 12 years old to purchase a hunting license or hunt with a gun unless they’re participating in a mentored hunt. Children as young as 10 can hunt under that program.

MADISON, Wis. — Jarrett Adams was 17 years old in September 1998 when he made a decision he would regret for the rest of his life.

He and two friends decided to road trip from Illinois to Wisconsin for a night of partying. The outing ended with a student accusing all three of them of raping her. Adams was sentenced to nearly three decades in prison.
