Vote on outdoors proposals Monday at spring hearings

The annual statewide fish and wildlife rules hearings are scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday in each county.

The sessions are sponsored by the Wisconsin Conservation Congress and Department of Natural Resources and allow hunters, anglers and trappers to vote on issues that may lead to regulation changes.

Among the hunting topics are proposals to reduce the number of turkey management zones from 46 to seven, establish a turkey hunting zone where dogs could be utilitzed and to require portable ground blinds on state lands to display at least a square foot of blaze orange visible from all sides during the gun deer season.

Among the fishing topics are proposals that would require muskie anglers using live bait to use quick-strike rigs and to extend the muskie season in the southern zone to Dec. 31 from Nov. 30.

Hearing sites in the area include:

Brown County — Green Bay Southwest High School auditorium;

Door County — Sturgeon Bay High School auditorium;

Kewaunee County — Kewaunee High School auditorium;

Marinette County — Crivitz High School auditorium;

Oconto County — Suring High School cafeteria.
