Illinois and Iowa are still shotgun only, so I don't think you guys would have much of an issue getting rid of them if you really wanted too.

Breaking News 9/24/13 From The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources: RIFLES ALLOWED STATEWIDE, WITH RESTRICTIONS: The DNR Link https://www.facebook.com/WIDNR

Effective Nov. 1, 2013, in time for this year’s 9-day firearm deer season, the use of rifles will be permitted statewide. The Oct. 5-6 youth gun deer hunt will still be restricted to shotgun-only in those portions of the state that were previously shotgun-only. While the DNR is no longer placing restrictions on the use of rifles in certain areas of the state, local municipalities will still be able to restrict the use of rifles within their boundaries. Hunters will need to check with the local municipality where they plan to hunt for any restrictions on the use of rifles. Smile

Yeah, that stinks for me. I've had an extra slug gun laying around that I meant to sell some time ago. I never got around to it. Looks like it will continue to take up space in my safe.

OK, here is your proof. It was as simple as chatting on-line with a DNR Service Rep:

Me:I talked to a gal on the DNR info line earlier this week and she said the Shotgun Only zones had been eliminated for this fall, starting Nov 1. I have not found anything corroborating this on line. Can you confirm this? Cheryl: Yes. that is true. Let me see if I have something on that. One moment please. Cheryl: Thank you for waiting. It does not look as though they have been able to update this in the on-line regulations as of yet. Here is the information shared with us: The use of rifles will be allowed statewide starting on Nov. 1, 2013 in time for this year’s 9-day firearm season. The Oct. 5-6 youth gun deer hunt will still be restricted to shotgun-only in those portions of the state that were previously shotgun-only (see the map on page 23 of the 2013 deer regulations booklet). Hunters will need to check with the local municipality where they are planning to hunt to determine if local ordinances are in place that would restrict the use of rifles.......................

From what I understand the Senate has to vote on it and they are not in session until October.
