Sorry to tell you but it does not matter what felony you were convicted of. Although federal law does not prohibit felons from possessing some "antique" or black powder/muzzleloader weapons, Wisconsin law does. WI considers these weapons to be firearms and as a convicted felon you are permanently prohibited from possessing or using any weapon that acts by force of gunpowder. As Atty. Witt indicated above, the only possible way to get this restriction removed is by a governor's pardon but it's incredibly difficult to successfully get one of those. I recommend you take up bow hunting if you are not otherwise prohibited from possessing any other weapons (for example, if you were on probation and were ordered not to possess any weapons). Good luck.

Short of a pardon, nothing. Governor Evers is accepting pardon applications, but "I want to hunt with a firearm" is not likely to be considered a sufficient reason.
