Suprised nobody posted this yet. Even the ultra left Duluth News tribune had it in there...

I believe it's been that way on the WI side for quite a while, but don't let quanity make up for quality... make em count.

Hunt safe and enjoy.

Sweet! Now I don't need a 6.8.

I believe this is good news. Although I hunt WI and have the option of using 22 cal. centerfire, I don't, but that is my choice. Are deer wounded and never recovered by 22 cal rounds, yes, but so are deer hit by 30-06 and .270's. Please, with this new option, use sound judgement when choosing appropriate ammunition. I may be preaching to the choir, but I feel it is our responsibility to hunt in a humane manner. Please be good stewards to hunting and AR owners and pass on any knowledge to others on appropriate hunting ammunition. I feel that a .223 is "enough" gun when matched with appropriate ammuntion, it is just not my choice.

Actually 7.62x39 is a decent round for hunting whitetail. It is balistically about the same as the venerable 30-30 round that's probably killed the 2nd most deer in this state (behind the 30-06).

I plan on using my SKS for stomping brush this year. It's the perfect rifle for taking shots inside of 100 yards.

Kudos, my friend!! I feel the same. Besides, deer hunting is why I built my 6.8 in the first place... 110 Serria soft points @ 2900+fps!!! Bambi's dad is now officially worried!!!

Is this just up North?
It says nothing about what zones change.

The rifle regs would only apply to the rifle zones.
