DNR has it wrong on hunting

The Department of National Resources is grasping at straws. Eliminating the minimum hunting age won't bring people to the killing fields and neither will a program that tries to sell hunting as a food source.

A recent report by the U.S. Department of the Interior showed that from 2011-16, the number of hunters in America fell to 11.5 million while the number of people who took to the outdoors to peacefully observe and photograph animals surged from 71.8 million to 86 million.

Those numbers don't lie: Hunting isn't a tradition, it's a dying blood sport, and Wisconsinites don't have to destroy animals' families to eat. They can thrive on sustainable vegan foods, help the environment, and most importantly, save animals' lives.
