Wis. Senate lowers hunting age to 10

Madison, Wis. (AP) – The state Senate has approved lowering the
state’s hunting age to 10.

Right now children must be at least 12 years old to hunt.
Democrats introduced a bill that would allow children to hunt with
firearms beginning at age 10 if they’re accompanied by a mentor
within arm’s reach.

Supporters say the age change will maintain interest in hunting
in Wisconsin for years to come. Critics call it an accident waiting
to happen because children so young are not mature enough to handle
guns.

The Senate approved the measure 27-6. It now goes to the
Assembly.
