Will you ride your bicycle, walk your
dog or hike where hunters trap & shoot?
In March of 2012 Wisconsin passed a law, ACT 168, that allows hunters, fishers and trappers to share up to 80% of each state park with all other users for more than 7 months each year. There are safety, legal, environmental, and economic concerns. Most hunters are against Act 168 for many reasons, including increased liability.
Requiring hunters to stay at least 100 yards from a designated use area is not safe, considering some bullets can travel over 1000 yards and other users are not required to stay on designated trails and roads.
On Oct 11, 2011, the public session for AB 311 about hunting in Wisconsin did not include “state parks shall be open to hunting, fishing, and trapping”.
Amendment 4 was offered to AB311 on Oct. 20, 2011 by Rep. Jeffrey Mursau to include “state parks shall be open to hunting, fishing, and trapping” and this was 9 days after the 10-11-11 public hearing.
AB 311 was passed in the WI State Assembly on Nov. 1, 2011 without the state parks amendment and was rewritten on Nov. 2, 2011 to include this language.
Therefore, for the safety of year round recreational users in WI State Parks, we ask the DNR Board to delay the implementation of Act 168 until safety and legal issues are resolved.

Part of the Insanity that is the DNR under Scott ( Koch Brothers) Walker and Cathy ( High School Degree)
Steppe....Let em hunt anywhere because they have the power to make the government of Wisconsin do anything it wants to do behind the backs of a sleeping public.
This is lunacy. We MUST stop this war on wildlife.
Let's find the avenue to complain about Cathy Stepp if we think she is incompetent for her job. With a new hiring process on their table, there is hope for change. we need to find balance in our legal structure, as pertains to animal welfare, not bias for the sake of hunters and hunting license sles. think of the amount of animal behavior data that can tell us what we should be doing for them, instead. And, do insects count as animals? If not, why not? They are an important part of the ecostructure.
