MADISON, Wis. (AP) – The Wisconsin Natural Resources Board is hearing from residents who oppose a new law opening up much of Wisconsin’s state parks and trails to hunting. The board held a public meeting Tuesday afternoon in Madison. More than 60 people signed up to speak about the measure. The law prohibits hunting and setting of traps within 100 yards of trails and other designated areas. Still, some speakers say they are concerned about gunfire and traps in areas frequented by families and pets. Other speakers say hunters already have enough access to hunting grounds. The state Department of Natural Resources has proposed limiting the park areas where hunting can occur. The board is expected to vote on that proposal at the end of the meeting.
