Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to Consider Extending November Deer Hunting Season!

Friday, September 25, 2009

Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voices Heard!

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is proposing to extend the 9-day deer rifle season in November by seven days and wants the public to weigh-in.  A number of public hearings have been scheduled across the Badger State and it is imperative that you attend and make your voices heard.

The hearings will begin at 6:30 p.m. with an informational presentation and overview of the proposed rule.  Public comments and statements will be accepted beginning at 7:00 p.m.

Scheduled hearing dates and locations:

  • Crivitz - Wednesday, October 14, Crivitz Village Hall, 800 Henriette Ave.
  • Onalaska - Thursday, October 15, Onalaska High School Field house, 700 Hilltopper Place.
  • Madison - Wednesday, October 21, Lussier Family Heritage Center - Main Level, 3101 Lake Farm Road.
  • Rhinelander - Wednesday, October 21, James Williams Middle School, 915 Acacia Lane.
  • Ashland - Wednesday, October 21, Ashland AmericInn Conference Center, 3009 Lakeshore Drive E.
  • Appleton - Monday, October 26, Fox Valley Technical College, Appleton Campus, Room C190, 1825 North Bluemound Drive.
  • Eau Claire - Monday, October 26, Chippewa Valley Technical College auditorium, Room M103, 620 W. Clairemont Ave.
  • Pewaukee - Wednesday, October 28, Waukesha County Technical College, Room C051/C057, 800 Main St.
  • Spooner - Wednesday, October 28, Spooner High School Auditorium, 801 County A.
  • Stevens Point - Tuesday, November 3, Portage County Courthouse Annex, Conference Room 1, 1462 Strongs Ave.

Please attend these hearings and make your opinion heard.  The proposal provides more hunting opportunities in Wisconsin and is biologically justified in light of the state's robust deer populations.  Increasing hunting opportunities in Wisconsin would generate millions more dollars for conservation efforts and would stimulate local businesses.  If you are unable to attend, please contact Bob Manwell at (608) 264-9248 or Keith Warnke at (608) 264-6023 for more information.
