The package was supported by representatives of the Wisconsin Wildlife Federation, Wisconsin Conservation Congress, Wisconsin Bowhunters Association and Wisconsin Hunters Rights Coalition.
"I'm concerned that if you vote against this package, you will increase the likelihood that tools will be taken away from the department," said George Meyer, executive director of the Wisconsin Wildlife Federation.
"We've been down this road before," said board chairman Jonathan Ela. "With these regulations, we're poised for an increase in deer numbers."
"If we take this action today, what we are doing is basically guaranteeing that the percentage of animals with CWD in the deer herd will go up and the geographical range of CWD will expand," said board member Christine Thomas.

. there is a new bowhunting Governor, new members of the NRB (including a life long bowhunter and supporter of sportsmen) and a new DNR that will treat hunters like customers instead of criminals and is listening to hunters. The sportsmen of WI are well positioned and have a bright future. Why this would upset you is odd.
