10 Infants Buy Wisconsin Hunting Permits in First Year With No Age Limit
By Jackalope Jordan
Ten infants purchased hunting licenses this year, the first with no age limit for big game hunters.
The minimum age requirement was previously 10-years-old. Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources reported 1,814 licenses were sold to children 9-years-old or younger for mentored hunts, according to an Associated Press article.
A 4-year-old was the youngest hunter to register a kill. Four 5-years-old also filled their tag, though the AP report notes an adult could have pulled the trigger.
In Montana, big game hunters must be 12-years-old by January following the hunting season and complete a hunter’s education course.
