On May 2nd Governor Walker announced new efforts to combat CWD within the state of Wisconsin. CWD is a legitimate threat to our hunting heritage in Wisconsin. These included three main steps to be taken. Each requiring approval from either the DNR or DATCP. These include limiting transportation between captive cervid facilities, requiring enhanced fencing, and limiting carcass travel of hunter killed deer from CWD positive counties. The Wisconsin Chapter of Backcountry Hunters & Anglers applauds Governor Walker for taking steps in the right direction in combatting CWD. We also applaud the DNR board for approving their portion of the new rules. The Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection is holding a public meeting on their portion of the measures on July 24th, 2018 in Sheboygan (address here). The Wisconsin chapter of Backcountry Hunters & Angler strongly urges DATCP to pass the proposed rules including enhanced fencing and restrictions on transporting deer on deer farms from CWD infected counties.
