3of a group hunting party.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, any member of a group deer hunting party may kill a deer
for another member of the party if, at the time and place of the kill, the person who
kills the deer is in contact with the person for whom the deer is killed. 2017
Wisconsin Act 59
, which eliminated all requirements relating to deer carcass tags,
also eliminated an exception to this general authorization that prohibited a member
of a group deer hunting party from using a youth deer tag issued to another member
of the party under the age of 18 to kill an antlerless deer for that other member. This
bill restores this exception by prohibiting a member of a group deer hunting party
from killing an antlerless deer for another member of the party who has been issued
a youth deer hunting license.
