Wisconsin issues hunting licenses to 10 children under a year old

Wisconsin issues hunting licenses to 10 children under a year old

The state Department of Natural Resources says ten deer hunting licenses were sold this month to children under the age of one.

Under the new law, hunters must be 14 years of age or older and pass the state's gun safety courses before being allowed to hunt on their own.

Wisconsin also sold three mentored licenses this year to 1-year-olds, four to 2-year-olds, three to 3-year-olds and four to 4-year-olds, according to ABC News.

The previous minimum age for a mentored license was 10.

Records don't indicate who actually killed the deer registered to the children.

Both the adult and child are allowed to carry weapons under the new law, as long as the adult stays within arm's reach.

From there, the numbers jump: Twenty-eight were sold to 5-year-olds; 70 to 6-year-olds; 191 to 7-year-olds; 490 to 8-year-olds and 1,011 to 9-year-olds.

In future years the number of youth licenses may increase.

It's possible the licenses sold to young children were purchased as keepsakes only, the Journal Sentinel noted. The age requirement was dropped on November 13 - less than two weeks before the gun-deer season.

On Nov. 19, one day after the 2017 hunting season began, kindergartner Lexie Harris posed next to a deer she killed under the supervision of her father, Tyler Harris, in the woods near their home in Medford, The Associated Press reported.
