Keith Warnke, a former DNR biologist, represented the Air Gun Sporting Association at the Wisconsin Wildlife Federation (WWF) annual meeting on large-bore air rifles and their potential use in deer hunting.
Warnke went to a meeting after retiring from the DNR and happened to meet up with an acquaintance who runs the Air Gun Sporting Association. That group is looking to get a law passed to allow the use of large-bore air rifles in deer hunting in Wisconsin. Warnke was asked to help with this statute change. Wisconsin allows the use of air guns for hunting for small game.
