Wisconsin drafts rules to hunt wolves using dogs
Posted: 01.14.2013
MADISON, WIS. (AP) -- The Department of Natural Resources wants to ask outdoor lovers what they think of new wolf-dog hunting rules.
DNR officials are set to ask the agency's board on Jan. 23 to include the rules on the Conservation Congress' spring hearings questionnaire.
The draft rules would allow hunters to train dogs on wolves during daylight hours during wolf season and the month of March. Dogs also would have to be tattooed or wear a collar with its owner's name and address. Hearing attendees would get a chance to express support on a number of different provisions in the rules.
The agency hopes to take the rules to public hearings later this year and implement them in 2014.
