MADISON (WKOW) -- The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources' board has approved new restrictions on hunting and trapping in state parks.
The Legislature passed a law last year that lifted the general prohibition on both activities in the parks. The new statues will allow the DNR to prohibit hunting and trapping within designated areas.
The agency proposed emergency rules that would prohibit people from shooting guns, bows and crossbows from or across park trails and require trappers to use dog-proof snares.
The Natural Resources Board approved the rules unanimously during its meeting Wednesday in Pembine.
The regulations are set to go into effect on November 15.
