Ho-Chunk closes ammunition plant to non-tribal hunters

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Ho-Chunk Nation has closed 1,550 acres at the shuttered Badger Army Ammunition Plant in Sauk County to non-tribal hunters.


   The tribe acquired the land through federal legislation that passed in December. Prior to the tribe's acquisition the land was open for public hunting.


   The tribe says only enrolled Ho-Chunk members will be permitted to hunt on the land. They must possess a valid state hunting license and abide by the state's hunting rules and regulations.
