DNR Secretary defends decision to cut wolf hunting permit fees

by

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Secretary Cathy Stepp says the governor’s decision to cut wolf permit fees from $100 to $47 for state residents brings them more in line with bear hunting permits. Those cost $49.

Stepp was challenged by members of the Joint Finance Committee during a hearing Tuesday. She says the governor doesn’t want to create any obstacles to hunting wolves and that’s why the change was made in the executive budget.

Marinette Republican State Representative John Nygren told Stepp the Legislature had set the license fees in the original bill establishing Wisconsin’s first wolf hunt.

Nygren says lawmakers want to know they have been heard by the executive branch.
