Wisconsin Assembly Sends Wolf-Hunting Bill to Governor Scott Walker

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Today, the Wisconsin Assembly voted 69 to 25 to concur with Senate Bill 411, sponsored by state Senator Terry Moulton (R-23), which passed in the state Senate by an overwhelming 24 to 9 vote.  This bill is now with Governor Scott Walker’s desk awaiting his signature.  If enacted, SB 411 will create the first wolf hunting season east of the Mississippi since the wolf’s delisting from the endangered species list.

Like Assembly Bill 502, its companion bill in the Assembly sponsored by state Representative Scott Suder (R-69), SB 411 would authorize the Department of Natural Resources to establish a season for the hunting of wolves in response to the long-overdue federal delisting of the species from the endangered species list.

This delisting recognizes the successful recovery of the gray wolf population in the Western Great Lakes Region.  Hunters have served as an essential tool for the management of wildlife throughout this country and SB 411 creates a framework for managing the state’s wolf population using this time-tested method. A scientifically-regulated hunting season will help to insure balance between predator and prey populations.

SB 411 would allow a fixed number of wolf tags to be filled in a given year with half to be chosen by a lottery system and half by “preference points” given to those applicants who applied for but who were not issued a wolf harvesting license in previous seasons.

Thank you to those state Representatives who voted for SB 411 and to our members who contacted them. Please contact Governor Walker and respectfully urge him to sign SB 411 into law.

Governor Scott Walker
