Chippewa pushing again for night deer hunt

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- The Chippewa tribes in Wisconsin want to be able to hunt deer at night.

They've asked a federal appeals court to allow them to shoot deer after dark.

The Chippewa have been pushing for this for decades in northern Wisconsin's ceded territory.

The state has banned the practice for safety reasons.

Two years ago, the tribes tried again, arguing the state has allowed night hunting to slow chronic wasting disease.

The judge rejected the arguments in December.

Monday, the tribes submitted a brief with the Circuit Court of Appeals, arguing night hunting has become more common and the state can't argue it's not safe.
