The Right to Hunt Act Controversy in Wisconsin

by Rachel Tilseth, the founder of the Wolves of Douglas County, Wisconsin
There is a Right to Hunt Act controversy mounting in Wisconsin…

In Wisconsin, a legislator is proposing a law that will protect fringe hunters from citizens monitoring them.

These fringe hunters don’t want anyone to see what they are doing on public lands. What are these hunters doing that they need to hide from public view?

The  Right to Hunt Act legislation that would make it illegal to follow, photograph or record hunters and with fines of up to $10,000 fine and nine months jail time (2015 SENATE BILL 338 and Assembly Bill 433).

I have been in the north woods many times and never witnessed any harassing of hunters.
