Attendees at Spring Fish & Wildlife Hearings and Conservation Congress Meetings overwhelmingly support changes in baiting and feeding laws

Last year during the spring hearings, the Natural Resources Board asked if deer baiting and feeding should be banned from 10 days prior to the archery opener through the gun deer season. The question passed in 66 counties. This year the Conservation Congress asked if deer baiting and feeding should be banned from Sept. 1 through the last day of any deer season. The question passed in 63 counties. The statewide vote was 2,532 in favor of the change and 1,303 opposed.

News #1   After over a month in Jackson County, elk from Kentucky continue to adjust to their new surroundings
MADISON -- After over a month in Jackson County, elk from Kentucky continue to adjust to their new surroundings with help from Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources staff and their partners.

Prior to arriving safely in Wisconsin March 26, the elk were held for 45 days in Kentucky for initial disease testing as part of a 120-day quarantine period. The elk currently reside in a quarantine pen in Jackson County, where they will remain until at least mid-June. When the quarantine period has ended and final disease testing is completed, they will be released in Jackson County.

For the duration of their captivity in Kentucky and Wisconsin, the elk have received expert care. Precautions taken include 24-hour monitoring, veterinary care and oversight, routines to limit exposure to stress, and daily monitoring and observations for any injuries or additional concerns.

In mid-April, a mortality event involving four calves and one adult cow was promptly identified due to diligent 24-hour surveillance protocol. Following a thorough investigation, the cause of death was attributed to acute Babesiosis, a disease caused by a tick-borne parasite. While this parasite has previously been identified in Wisconsin and other states, its impact on both wild and captive elk is unknown.

News #2  Nominations sought for angling and deer representatives on Sporting Heritage Council by May 22

MADISON - The Department of Natural Resources is seeking nominations through May 22 for individuals with experience and interest to fill two positions -- the angling and deer positions -- on the Sporting Heritage Council. The council, established by 2011 Wis. Act 168, advises Gov. Scott Walker, the Natural Resources Board, and the state legislature on fishing, hunting and trapping issues. The group mainly focuses on recruitment, retention and increasing access to resources and outdoor opportunities.

The council consists of 12 appointees in total, including the Department of Natural Resources secretary or a designee, one member appointed by the governor, two members of the Assembly, two members of the Senate, one member appointed by the Wisconsin Conservation Congress executive committee and the five members recently appointed by the Natural Resources Board.

The currently vacant positions are two of the five appointed by the Natural Resources Board. Each of the five appointments represent distinct interests, including deer hunting, bear hunting, bird hunting, angling, and furbearer hunting or trapping. The vacant positions will represent angling and deer hunting interests.

The selected appointees terms will end July 1, 2018.

Individuals must represent angling or deer hunting interests and must be nominated by a sporting organization. The nomination form and more information can be found at, and search "sporting heritage."
