I know a few felons thatpurchase deer hunting licenses and tags, but they do not actually hunt with a firearm!
Most I know are doing this to get tags so others can fill them for them, and they still get venison. The go out in the woods, sit with the guy, clean and gut the deer, and even haul it out.
Does a felony chargeprohibit muzzleloader firearms too, [YES, Wisconsin considers a smoke pole to be a firearm and therefore felons may not possess
]or justmodern guns? I see no problems with a felon hunting with a muzzleloader, especially since WI has made hunting a protected right.[Not quite. They added "subject only to reasonable restrictions as prescribed by law" to the end and therefore I still see it as aprivilege because they could just change the law and hunting would near impossible.
I believe you can also use up any unused gun-deer tags during late archery season, So i see this as the DNR just selling off our deer herd for profit.
