PEMBINE, WI (WTAQ) - Restrictions on hunting and trapping have been partially brought back to Wisconsin state parks. 

Wednesday in Pembine, the state Natural Resources Board approved emergency rules to prevent folks from shooting guns, bows, and cross-bows on park trails, or across them. 

Also, trappers must use dog-proof snares. 

The board approved the new rules unanimously. They'll take effect November 15th. 

A year ago, the governor and Legislature lifted a general ban on hunting and trapping in state parks. Specific prohibitions can still be ordered in designated areas.
