Wisconsin Conservation Congress Public Hearing Tomorrow, Monday, April 13

Sunday, April 12, 2009

Help Protect Wisconsin’s Hunting Heritage!

The Wisconsin Conservation Congress (WCC) is scheduled to have a public hearing to discuss a myriad of hunting and fishing proposed rules on Monday, April 13 at 7 p.m.  Help secure Wisconsin’s important hunting heritage by attending this meeting.

The WCC is an “advisory body” of elected county delegates to represent each counties interest in Wisconsin’s natural resources, both local and statewide.  The WCC works with the Natural Resources Board and the Department of Natural Resources to help effectively manage the abundant natural resources of Wisconsin, for present and future generations.

Most important to gun owners, the Congress will discuss and hear input on what is the most appropriate definition of a firearm for hunting purposes.  Please attend this public hearing to prevent a restrictive definition of firearm from being offered by anti-gun activists or anti-hunting groups.
