Starting this Saturday, over 12,000 bear hounds will be set loose on public land across Wisconsin to harass wildlife and disturb the peace of these natural areas.
Many hunters pledge to do "whatever is necessary to restore deer numbers and quality deer hunting in northern Wisconsin." Yet, these hunters fail to look at themselves, their attitudes and activities. Because their notions are mistaken, and not in the best interests of deer or the future of deer hunting.
Please use this letter as a template to express your opposition to the bear hounding and baiting practices that are currently being allowed to take place with very little regulation on our public lands.
There's nothing wrong with technology, but there is a point where it starts replacing skill and encouraging an attitude of entitlement.
