Special Hunting Season in Wisconsin for Soldiers

Representative Chris Danou of Trempealeau was the chief sponsor of an approved special gun deer hunt for Wisconsin soldiers who missed the regular hunting season due to being overseas.

State lawmakers approved this special hunt which combines returning soldiers and landowners that are having crop damage due to nuisance deer.

According to the Wisconsin State Journal, the original legislation would only allow the hunting season to run from February 4th to February 7th but lawmakers expanded the season substantially. Vets can now hunt any day between now and September which allows for the convenience to the soldier and landowners.
