Judge allows Chippewa tribes in Wisconsin to hunt deer at night


Chippewa tribes in Wisconsin will be allowed to hunt deer at night with firearms after they persuaded a federal judge to reverse her 1991 ruling that found the practice was unsafe.

U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb ruled on Tuesday in favor of the Chippewa tribes, which vowed to take precautions such as providing safety courses and shooting tests and using lights and backstops during hunts.

"Member tribes welcome the night hunt as an additional opportunity for members to put meat on the table," the Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission said in a statement.
