MONROE - Any hunter who has passed a hunter's safety class can use a crossbow this year thanks to a decision approved by the Wisconsin Natural Resources Board on Wednesday. The board decided to allow crossbow hunting for both big game and small game. Prior to this change, crossbows were only allowed to be used by those over 65 years of age or the disabled after they had filled out lengthy applications proving age or disability.
