Appeals court hearing set for allowing Chippewa tribe a night-time deer hunt

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin's Chippewa Indians will try again next month to convince the federal courts to let them hunt deer at night.

The northern Wisconsin tribes have appealed Federal Judge Barbara Crabb's rejection of their latest request for night-time deer hunting.

The DNR says it's not safe, while the Chippewa said the state allowed wolf hunters to shoot at night during their inaugural season in 2013.

A federal appellate panel in Chicago plans to hear arguments in the case on September 16th.
