Just a heads up, there were 2 citizen advisory questions proposals in Manitowoc county proposed by a likely anti. One to propose not allowing dogs for wolf hunting because it makes the wolves fear all dogs and more likely his pet will be eaten, and also a proposal to ban hunting completions. Examples would be like our sporting club has a crow classic and a cotton tail classic.

I have been informed that there were over 400 Citizen Resolutions submitted, many of which had to do with banning hunting competitions, running wolves with dogs, and other issues we need to really watch for and vote against.

green county had the coyote contest and wolf hunting with dogs question

make sure you go vote

the sheer fact that 86% of wolves were taken by hound hunters in just days should tell us it is the most effective non trapping method to control wolf populations,

wolves should fear dogs just as bear should fear dogs , it is better for everyone if wolves and bear fear dogs.

increased issues is because increased excess population not because an effective tool in controlling populations was allowed to be used for a few days

America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

There is no reason you cannot vote. I fought that during the cat issue. I was told that folks from other states can vote for everything but their County delegates.

That is the lunacy of this whole movement for online "input"...certainly not to be confused with voting.

I predict that we will no longer have the in-person Spring Hearings.

I heard last year that the online survey doesn't have influence like actually being at the meeting. Anyone confirm?

If out of state votes counted In over all scheme of things we would be hung out to dry.
This online voting thing Is going to come back and bite us In the arss someday. Marshrat doesn't think so but I do.

All the NRB is interested in is numbers. I was told that by a past Chairman of a committee on which I serve.

Sprung and Rusty-The only means the public can provide input is through the online survey...the Spring Hearings that we have known from the past are not being held, and I predict will not be held in the future. A real loss for Wisconsin conservation in the guise of dealing with COVID. Since the inception of the ballots and then with the advent of online "surveys" I have spoken out loudly and long against the imminent demise of the tradition of the Spring Hearings.

Other areas of DNR have also been changed to online surveys, all of which are meant to simply generate numbers, often from an uninformed public, rather than discussion and sometimes hot debate about issues we hold dear. Sad to see.

The problem with out-of-state voters arises in the enabling legislation that formed the Conservation Congress/Spring Hearings. It uses the term "citizens" which has been interpreted as meaning "anyone" including folks from other states.

"This input is unbelievable when you think about how we are allowed as citizens to have a direct conduit to state regulators," Dr. Frederick Prehn, Natural Resources Board Chairman said. "The Natural Resources Board and the DNR; this is a golden opportunity that most states don’t have. Citizens can give direct input to us on proposed questions to regulate wildlife and fish and game ."

Please note in the above quote from the Chairman of the NRB that he does not mention the Conservation Congress in any way. I personally think the Congress will become extinct in not too long.
