New Berlin will now be more open to bow and crossbow hunters.
The Common Council on Tuesday dropped some restrictions on where people can hunt with bows. The city will also no longer require permits and background checks. The changes bring the city's ordinances in line with Act 71, a less-restrictive law that was passed by the Wisconsin Legislature in December.
New Berlin's amended ordinances now simply require hunters to be properly licensed to hunt in Wisconsin and that they get permission from landowners whose land on which they want to hunt. Hunting still will not be permitted in park, parkways, school, city or federal properties.
Also, arrows or bolts must be discharged toward the ground, and hunting is not permitted within 100 yards of a building unless prior permission has been obtained from the owner of the land where the building sits.
