Crossbow fanatics can now head to Wisconsin, because the governor signed a bill Tuesday creating a new hunting season, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

In the past, crossbow hunting was only allowed in the state for those older than 65 and those with physical disabilities, a local paper reported. Now, hunters of all legal ages and physical abilities can take part.

Some of the game that can be hunted includes deer, rabbits and coyotes.

The law, referred to as Act 61, creates a three-year trial period during which the state’s Department of Natural Resources will monitor harvest rates by crossbow hunters.

“At the end of the trial period, the agency will report on the results and determine how to proceed,” the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

Wisconsin’s crossbow hunting season will run concurrently with its archery deer season.
