This week, Hunter Nation, along with the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty, won our lawsuit against the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources for ignoring a state law requirement to schedule a wolf hunt this winter.
A Jefferson County Circuit Court found that the Wisconsin DNR violated state law by refusing to schedule a winter 2021 gray wolf hunt when the gray wolf was delisted from the Endangered Species Act on January 4, 2021.
This is a historic victory for Wisconsin hunters and our constitutionally protected right to hunt and manage our wildlife here in Wisconsin!
The ruling finally provides clear direction to the Evers’ administration to move full speed ahead with our statutorily required wolf hunt. And it isn't just that it is required - our state's wolf population is out of control. According to the DNR's own reports, the wolf population is nearly four times the state goal and wolf attacks are up 70% since the state's last wolf hunt.
But the fight isn't over yet. The Evers’ administration must direct the Wisconsin DNR to hold a wolf hunt this month.
We can't sit around and wait to see if they will - we must DEMAND Governor Evers direct the DNR to move forward with a wolf hunt immediately.
