This week, Assembly Bill 512 and Senate Bill 545 have been scheduled for public hearings. These bills repeal the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) administrative code provision that generally prohibits a person from hunting or pursuing any free-roaming wild animal with the aid of a dog from May 1 to June 30 in a portion of the state north of certain east-west highways. The bills also repeal DNR’s administrative code restrictions on dog training and dog trialing on any free-roaming wild animal in that area and during that period.
