Five Listening Sessions Set for Hunting and Trapping in State Parks

The first of five listening sessions on hunting and trapping in Wisconsin state parks will be held in Fitchburg October 29th. Officials say they want the public’s input on how to implement new regulations going into effect the first of next year. Act 168 is commonly called the Sporting Heritage Bill. It will expand hunting and trapping in most state parks to including virtually all hunting seasons, from the fall to the Memorial Day weekend. The DNR says it wants to make way for the hunting and trapping activities, while making sure the parks remain safe for hikers, campers, bikers, skiers and other users.
