Natural Resources Board to consider wolf season at July special meeting

MADISON — The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has released its final proposal for Wisconsin’s fall 2012 wolf hunting and trapping season. The Wisconsin Natural Resources Board, the policy-making body for the Department of Natural Resources, will meet at 9 a.m. on July 17 in the Spruce/Sands room at the Holiday Inn Convention Center, 1001 Amber Ave., Stevens Point, to consider the rule.

Information on the hunting season proposal can be found on the DNR website:search for keyword “wolf.”

A wolf hunting season was approved by the Wisconsin State Legislature earlier this year. The board will review final implementation plans for the first year of that hunt.

The public is welcome to attend and comment on DNR’s season proposal, including the total harvest goal for 2012; the number of permits to be made available; the number and location of hunting zones; wolf trapping techniques; wolf depredation reimbursement guidelines and administration; and emergency season closure criteria.

The 2012 wolf hunting season proposal is a temporary framework, known as an emergency rule. Over the next two years, DNR will be working with the many groups that have an interest in the season to develop a more permanent wolf hunting season framework.

The public must pre-register to testify no later than 4 p.m., Thursday, July 12, 2012. Time per speaker will be limited to assure all registered have a chance to speak.

For consideration by the board, written comments also must be received by 4 p.m., Thursday, July 12, 2012. To register to testify, please contact
