A proposed Wisconsin bill could make it legal for anyone of any age to hunt.
The state Assembly is set to take the Republican-authored bill up next Thursday.
The bill would allow children of any age to hunt in a mentored program. It would also do away with the requirement that a hunter and mentor have only one gun, bow or cross bow between them.
Currently, hunters must be at least 12 years old to purchase a license or hunt with a gun. Children as young as 10 are allowed to participate in a mentored hunt, but anyone under 10 is not allowed to hunt,
If the Assembly approves, the proposal will be sent to the state Senate.
