MADISON, Wis. -

Arguments over whether the Wisconsin Chippewa can hunt deer at night are scheduled to continue on Thursday.

U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb two weeks ago declared the state's ban on night deer hunting extends to tribal hunters, scuttling the Chippewa's request until Wednesday's hearing.

Witnesses for both the Chippewa and the state testified all day Wednesday. Crabb did not say if she would rule from the bench following the expected conclusion of testimony on Thursday or at a later date.

The organization that oversees the Chippewa's off-reservation rights last month quietly authorized tribal hunters to hunt at night, known as shining.

The state Department of Natural Resources has banned night deer hunting for decades out of safety concerns.
