Hunters and Anglers, Don't Fret. You're Next

Freedoms that we hold sacred will be lost forever under Scott Walker.

Walker DNR Appointee Sought to Privatize Trout Streams

WCM Co-Op Excerpt:
Scott Gunderson, appointed by Scott Walker to a top position in the DNR, once pushed for legislation that would have privatized thousands of miles of Wisconsin’s waterways, including portions of every trout stream in the state. The 2004 legislation, authored by Gunderson while he was representing the 83rd District (Waukesha) in the State Assembly, redefined “navigable waters” in a way that would have denied public access to between one third and one half of Wisconsin’s public waterways.


Wisconsin's New Deer Czar Calls Land Of The Free "Communism"

Deer and Deer Hunting Excerpt:
Game Management,” says James Kroll, driving to his high-fenced, two-hundred-acre spread near Nacogdoches, “is the last bastion of communism.” Kroll, also known as Dr. Deer, is the director of the Forestry Resources Institute of Texas at Stephen F. Austin State University, and the “management” he is referring to is the sort practiced by the State of Texas. The 55-year-old Kroll is the leading light in the field of private deer management as a means to add value to the land. His belief is so absolute that some detractors refer to him as Dr. Dough, implying that his eye is on the bottom line more than on the natural world.

Kroll, who has been the foremost proponent of deer ranching in Texas for more than thirty years, doesn’t mind the controversy and certainly doesn’t fade in the heat. People who call for more public lands are “cocktail conservationists,” he says, who are really pining for socialism.

That is so bizarre. Even Walker's deer control and hunting and fishing policies are based on political ideology....and...

Walker's Budget Cuts Closing Fish hatchery Built In 1927

Ashland Excerpt:
Wisconsin’s state fish hatchery system is in the process of downsizing. [...] The Brule River Fish Hatchery was built in 1927 on the Little Brule River, which feeds into Lake Superior. It produced 200,000 brook trout in 1928.[...]Although Brule has been given a one year reprieve, state Fisheries Management Director Mike Staggs says it is next on the list to be closed. He says the whole system is being evaluated, and more cuts will have to be made.

If Walker survives the recall, the privatization of Wisconsin's public lands and waters will fall under his, "if you didn't know this was coming, you've been asleep for the past two years" campaign. Or, it's not my fault you refused to believe those lefty bloggers.
