Wisconsin: Please Attend Tomorrow's Hearing in Madison to Discuss Deer Hunting Regulations!

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voices Heard!

It is vitally important that you come to the State Capitol in Madison tomorrow and make your voices heard!

State Senator Jim Holperin (D-12), Chairman of the Transportation, Tourism, Forestry, and Natural Resources Committee, and State Representative Ann Hraychuck (D-28), Chairwoman of the House Fish and Wildlife Committee, have scheduled a joint hearing on deer hunting regulations. This is an ideal opportunity for all of Wisconsin’s sportsmen to speak their mind about the overwhelming amount of regulations placed upon hunting in Wisconsin.

The rules and regulations regarding deer hunting need to be dramatically simplified. It is also vitally important that Wildlife and Parks be separated from the control of the Department of Natural Resources, allowing it to be an independent agency once again. These two agencies once operated as separate entities until the mid-1960's. The combination of these two agencies could very well be the cause of many of these overbearing rules and regulations.

Due to consistent opposition by many sportsmen groups and information provided by the public at several public hearings on deer issues, the DNR has agreed to a one-year moratorium on the Earn-a-Buck program. This policy has frustrated hunters for years in Wisconsin and discouraged many hunters from taking to the woods. The deer harvest numbers from this year reflect dissatisfaction with this policy as well as many others in the volumes of deer regulations that Wisconsin hunters face. 

Please make every opportunity to attend this hearing.  The hearing will be held in Room 411 South at 10 a.m. tomorrow in the capitol.  We are expecting a very large turnout and need a substantial pro-hunting crowd to come and make their voices heard.  Animal “rights,” anti-hunting extremists are sure to make their presence known so it is critical that we are heard loudly.

Wisconsin has one of the most complex sets of rules and regulations for deer hunting in the entire nation, which unfairly burdens hunters. It is time for that to improve.
