DNR considers new hunting, trapping rules for state parks

Wisconsin DNR
Wisconsin DNR

UNDATED (WRN)   New restrictions are being considered for hunting and trapping in Wisconsin state parks.

The state’s Natural Resources Board will be asked on Wednesday to adopt emergency rules that would ban the shooting of guns, bows, and cross-bows from recreation trails or across them. Also, trappers would have to use dog-proof snares in those areas.

The Board will consider the changes when it meets at Pembine in northeast Wisconsin. If approved, they’ll take effect November 15th.

A state law adopted a year ago ended a general ban on hunting-and-trapping in state parks. The law still allows the DNR to restrict hunting activities in specific areas.
