Wisconsin Introduces Bill to Entice Hunters
Wisconsin Republicans have created a bill that will hopefully entice more hunters, fishermen and trappers to the sports, but also saving other sportsmen money. The bill that was presented would reduce the costs of hunting/fishing licenses for first timers or for those who have not participated in over a decade. It also allows the applicant to name a referral, and that person would save $20 on their licenses.
The measure has other items as well, such as creating an adult only hunting trapping education class, a free ice fishing weekend and it would establish a 15-member outdoor sports retention task force. Dean Hamilton is president of the United Sportsmen of Wisconsin. He says he can't imagine anyone opposing the measure. From Chicago Tribune News.
