Spring fisheries and wildlife informational hearing results available

News Release Published: April 11, 2012

Contact(s): Kari Lee-Zimmermann, DNR- 608-266-0580; Sharon Fandel – 608-261-0767

MADISON – A total of 4,611 people attended the 2012 Spring Fisheries and Wildlife Informational Hearings and Wisconsin Conservation Congress county meetings that were held in every county statewide on Monday, April 9.

The information hearings provide citizens with an opportunity to comment and indicate preference on a range of fish and wildlife management questions, Conservation Congress advisory questions, and to submit resolutions for rule changes they would like to see in the future.

Statewide hearing results and the questions are available on the Spring Rules Hearings page of the DNR Web site or go to dnr.wi.gov; search “spring hearings.”

Meeting results, along with written comments on the evening’s questions and DNR recommendations are used to advise the state Natural Resources Board. This year’s results will be reviewed at the board’s May 23 meeting in Madison. Votes are non-binding and are presented to the Natural Resources Board as advisories.

The hearings are held in conjunction with the Wisconsin Conservation Congress county meetings. DNR related proposals are presented to attendees by DNR staff. Following DNR business, the meeting is reconvened as a Conservation Congress meeting and congress advisory questions are presented and county congress delegates elected. The congress is an advisory body to the Natural Resources Board. During the congress’ portion of the hearing, citizens may introduce resolutions for consideration and vote by those attending the hearings.

Simplifying fish and game rules

Following the initial DNR and WCC segments of the evening meetings, the Conservation Congress convened town hall style meetings for the purpose of collecting ideas leading to simplification of fish and wildlife rules. Conservation Congress delegates will summarize comments collected in each county and will share recommendations in a report expected to be issued later this spring or early summer.
