Trapping in State parks???

Wisconsin will be considering this during the spring DNR meetings

Question 52-53- Allow Trapping and Hunting on State Park Lands (# 540210): Wisconsin State Statute s. 29.089 does not allow any trapping or hunting on Wisconsin state park land, except for deer, elk, wild turkeys or small game in a state park or portion of a state park if the department has authorized by rule the hunting of that type of game in a state park or portion of a state park. This means that state park lands are closed to hunting unless specifically opened by an administrative rule. Once lands are designated as part of the state park system, there are no provisions to allow trapping of any kind and no opportunity for bear hunting. Currently Wisconsin operates 46 state parks totaling 84,000 acres (32 of the 46 parks are more than 600 acres in size). The DNR continues to purchase private land and put it into the state park system. In private ownership, many of these areas may have been open to hunting and trapping. Trapping techniques have changed in recent years and the use of dog-proof traps, cable restraints, and the late seasons that allow the trapping of some furbearers under the ice have made possible the opportunity for multiple land uses with minimal user conflicts. In addition, safe hunting techniques, education, and hunter awareness efforts have made hunting an extremely safe activity, even on lands that are simultaneously open to other uses and activities.

Would you support legislation that would require lands purchased as state parks to be open to hunting and give the authority to the DNR to regulate hunting on these state park lands according to the wise use of the natural resource?

I think we as hunters and trappers should be able to hunt/trap any land owned by the state within reason, obviously not right in the park area where people may picinic
