State Senator Tries to Ban Hunting and Trapping on Public Land

A Wisconsin state senator has introduced two bills for consideration. The bills would ban the practice of hunting and trapping in state parks.

According to The Sportsmen Alliance, Wisconsin Sen. Fred A. Risser (D-Madison) has introduced two bills that would ban trapping and hunting in all state parks. Senate Bill 774, which bans the use of foothold and body-gripping traps in states parks, and Senate Bill 775, which bans all hunting in state parks, have both been assigned to the Senate Sporting Heritage, Mining, and Forestry Committee.

Access is the most important issue facing sportsmen today. Research has consistently shown that the number-one reason people give up hunting is due to a lack of access. In order to help preserve our hunting and trapping heritage we need to increase access opportunities not restrict them.
