Busted for Baiting, Wisconsin Legislative Liaison Resigns

A Wisconsin Bowhunters Association board member who is also its legislative liaison and represented the WBH on a 2007-08 stakeholder panel that helped rewrite DNR policies on chronic wasting disease was cited for illegal baiting/feeding Nov. 17 in Portage County.

Baiting/feeding deer was banned in Portage County after CWD was found there in 2002.

Ronald G. Kulas, 48, Delafield, one of 22 directors for the 6,000-member WBH, also represented the politically active group recently on DNR-appointed citizen committees that reviewed deer management-unit boundaries and alternatives to earn-a-buck.

The violation carries a fine of $343.50. On Dec. 17, Kulas was found guilty after pleading no contest.
