Governor Wants Hunting Made Easy
Governor Scott Walker is urging hunters to introduce someone new to hunting this year. And the path may be a bit easier for them.
Walker says since many people don't have private land, they are making
it easier to hunt by opening private land up to the public. This year, the
state expanded hunting through
the Voluntary Public Access program, which now has 43 thousand acres of private land open to hunting, up about 29 thousand acres from last year. VPA land is open to the public for multiple purposes, including hunting, and doesn't require permission from the land owner prior to use.
