Wisconsin Considers Broad Exemptions for Hunting Certain Captive Animals

Wisconsin AB 598 is the companion to Wisconsin SB 563, which was introduced on September 15, 2021. The bills would establish the same criteria for hunting farm-raised bovids as currently exist for hunting farm-raised deer; namely, allowing hunting of farm-raised bovids without a hunting license. The assembly bill has been referred to the Wisconsin Assembly Committee on Sporting Heritage.
