Pruning Nearly Wild Shrub Rose

I have Nearly Wild rose bushes that are scraggly and I wonder if I could trim them in winter?

Wait until late winter or early spring after severe weather has passed to do major pruning.  You will be able to remove winter damage first and then shape whatever growth is alive and healthy.   Plus the plants will soon begin to grow and the pruning cuts will close quickly.
