INSTANT SURVEY VOTE ON – POLL S706
Do you favor the adoption of statewide fishing regulations for bass, muskies and northerns?

Advisory question will ask spring hearings attendees’ opinion on simpler regs

pollpicThis year’s spring fish and game rules hearings will feature a question aimed at determining whether sportsmen favor the elimination of the current north/south zone regulations for bass, muskies and northern pike. In the Jan. 27 issue of Wisconsin Outdoor News, editor Dean Bortz writes:

“The DNR has managed bass, muskies and northern pike with different regulations for northern and southern zones for many years because spawning and growing seasons may differ from north to south. The agency is now wondering whether it still makes sense to have those zones because of variations in spawning seasons and weather patterns within the zones and from year to year.

The DNR will ask if sportsmen support the idea of going to a statewide regulation if the agency finds ‘that management zones are not biologically necessary to protect or improve certain fish populations.’”

Free Turkey Hunter Education Clinics offered, starting in late February

pollpicMADISON – Free turkey hunter education clinics will again be offered this year in Wisconsin. These free clinics are presented by volunteer instructors and are sponsored by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and the Wisconsin Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation.

Clinics typically last two to three hours and are designed to cover wild turkey biology and behavior, hunting methods, regulations, safety precautions and landowner/hunter ethics, as well as tips for scoring trophy birds and a few ideas for preparing turkeys at home. The turkey hunter education clinics are for all ages and experience levels, from beginning turkey hunters interested in learning wild turkey hunting techniques to experienced hunters looking to brush up on their skills and learn new techniques.

These clinics will be held from late February through late March. Information and a listing of the dates and locations for each clinic will be available soon on the wild turkey page of the DNR website, or may be obtained by calling the DNR Customer Call Center from 7 a.m. through 10 p.m., seven days a week, at 1-888-WDNRINFo (1-888-936-7463). For the latest additions or changes to the schedule, please refer to the DNR website.

Hunters may have noticed that the number of turkey hunter education clinics offered has gone down in recent years. Department staff and clinic instructors are planning how to combine the success of the turkey hunter education clinic program with that of the Learn to Hunt program. Over the years, as Wisconsin hunters have become adept at the art of turkey hunting, interest and participation in the turkey clinics have declined. However, novice turkey hunters will be well-served by the Learn to Hunt Turkey programs, which offer a valuable combination of classroom and field instruction as well as a hands-on mentored hunting experience. To learn more, visit the Learn to Hunt page of the DNR website.

Winds, fluctuating temperatures, runoff mean changing ice conditions for sturgeon season

OSHKOSH, Wis. – Sturgeon spearers anxious to start the season this Saturday are urged to check with local clubs and sport shops around Lake Winnebago and the Upper River Lakes for the latest information on ice conditions and to keep safety as the top priority when participating in this year’s season.

As of Monday, the thickness ranged from 3 to 13 inches – and it has been constantly changing thanks to temperature fluctuations, runoff and wind. Department of Natural Resource conservation wardens in the spearing region credit local fishing clubs members for checking ice conditions and thickness.

Despite poor ice conditions now, the spearing season is set and goes on as scheduled, according to Ron Bruch, DNR sturgeon biologist as Oshkosh. The long-range forecast over the possible 16-day season (if spearers do not reach a harvest cap that would close the season earlier) includes colder temperatures that could improve ice conditions.

“Working with the public, Natural Resources Board, and the legislature, the DNR sets the seasons for fishing and hunting,” Bruch says. “The anglers, spearers, and hunters who participate in these seasons are responsible for their own actions in the pursuit of their sport. Sportsmen and women make their own decisions, and may elect not to go out on the lakes to fish during thunderstorms, to hunt during ice storms, nor to spear or ice-fish on marginal or dangerous ice. Make sure you use good judgment when going out there.”

Winds can cause ice shifts which, in turn, cause cracks in the ice. Water flow from creeks that are running also help to weaken ice in spots.
