Wisconsin State Assembly Approves Crossbow Fishing Bill

Friday, February 17th, 2012 at 7:23 am

The state Assembly has approved a Republican bill that would let people kill fish with crossbows.

Currently, people can use bows and arrows to shoot rough fish, including carp and rainbow smelt. The measure would allow people to use crossbows as well and expands the list of rough fish they could target to include Asian carp.

The Assembly passed the bill 95-0 on Thursday. It goes next to the state Senate.
