LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Wisconsin anglers and hunters had their chance to have their voices heard.
The D.N.R. held its spring fish and game rules hearings in all 72 counties Monday. The hearings, held the second Monday every April, are combined with county meetings to discuss natural resources related issues.
Some of the topics include deer, pan fish, swans and even dogs. The meetings give people a chance to have their voices heard. "It gives Madison D.N.R. and gives the local D.N.R. staff an insight into how people feel about fishing regulations, hunting regulations, environmental rules, things like that," says La Crosse Conservation Delegate Marc Schultz.
Schultz says Wisconsin is the only state in the nation where residents can submit a resolution for fish and game management.
