Northwoods Chippewa tribes to ask for right to hunt deer at night

Deer at night

MADISON, Wis. (WSAU) - A federal judge is set to hear testimony on whether or not the Chippewa tribes can hunt deer at night.

The practice has been outlawed for 20 years after the tribes agree to the restriction with the DNR in front of US Judge Barbara Crabb in Madison. Now Crabb is set to hear arguments on the practice today.

Tribal leaders say that times and practices have changed to make the night hunts safe, noting that the DNR has allowed nighttime deer hunting to combat chronic wasting disease and let wolf hunters into the woods after dark this past fall. The DNR contend that the practice remains too dangerous to allow.

The hearings are expected to take a week to complete.
