Does the Spring Hearings vote on the crossbow issue clarify state sportsmen’s stand on this issue?
|Are the results clear on Crossbow use in Wisconsin ... ???|
Spring hearings attendees reject two crossbow-related questionsCrossbow proponents have lobbied strongly for the expansion of crossbow hunting opportunities, including staffing an informational booth at the recent Deer & Turkey Expo. At the same time, crossbow opponents have voiced strong opposition to allowing all hunters to use crossbows during the archery season. Some, however, have supported a separate crossbow season and license.
The Natural Resources Board offered two advisory questions in this year’s Spring Hearings. The introduction to Questions 66 and 67 read:
Crossbow use is currently allowed for anyone during firearm seasons for most species including deer. The use of crossbows for hunting deer outside the firearm deer seasons is limited to persons with certain disabled permits and persons over the age of 65. There has been considerable interest to expand deer hunting opportunity with crossbows outside the firearm deer seasons.
Attendees at the Wisconsin DNR Spring Fish & Wildlife Hearings rejected both proposals, one by a close vote and the other by a wide margin.
Do these results send a clear signal to lawmakers and the Natural Resources Board?
