Rep. Tiffany introduces Deer Hunters Heritage Bill
WAUSAU (WAOW)-- Points of contention between hunters and how the DNR manages the deer herd continue to be hashed out. Now, a Northwoods lawmaker introduces legislation to address the social and economic future of deer hunting in the state. Representative Tom Tiffany says the Deer Hunters Heritage Bill would protect the firearm and archery deer seasons. But it would eliminate Earn A Buck and T-Zone hunts. It wouldn't stop the DNR from using herd control methods including: antlerless tags, extended seasons or early hunts for CWD control.
"We think this bill will stand the test of time. This will set a framework in place that we will be able to use for years to come, and it will be affective for deer hunting in the state of Wisconsin," said Tiffany.
Tiffany says protecting Wisconsin's hunting heritage for future generations is what this bill is all about.
