Well, it was only advisory ...

The WDNR board met today and decided to not take the advice of the Conservation Congress advisory vote last week on the Prairie River quality trout fishing regulations. Despite the fact that the vote carried in 47 counties and by a 2024 to 1494 plurality, the regulations were overturned by a vote at the WDNR board hearing today.

This of course does not bode well for the future of the enlightened system of regulations currently in place in the state. This is decidedly an anti-resource decision, completely based outside the normal set of scientific principles at work on managing cold-water resources.

This is B.S. I hate Wisconsin. Thank God Favre is gone and the Packers are never going to win again. Did you know that the Chicago Bears have defeated the Green Bay Packers five out the the last six meetings?
