MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - New restrictions are being considered for hunting and trapping in Wisconsin state parks.
The Natural Resources Board will be asked Wednesday to adopt emergency rules to ban the shooting of guns, bows, and crossbows from recreation trails or across them.
Also, trappers would have to use dog proof snares in those areas.
The Board will consider the changes when it meets at Pembine in northeast Wisconsin. If approved, they'll take effect November 15th.
A state law adopted a year ago ended a general ban on hunting and trapping in state parks -- but under the law, the DNR could still restrict the activities in specific areas.
