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
