Should the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service lower
duck bag limits this fall in response to the Gulf oil spill?

Background: A front-page story in the June 25 issue of Wisconsin Outdoor News by writer Tim Eisele warns that the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico could have a long-lasting impact on waterfowl that will migrate this fall from the Midwest to the Gulf Coast:

“The massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is having a major effect on local wildlife and on the people who fish and make a living on those waters.

Wisconsin sportsmen may not feel directly impacted now, but when ducks, geese, and shorebirds begin migrating south this fall, they could well face the same oil-coated waters.”

Eisele quotes Wisconsin DNR and USFWS officials as saying as of now there is no plan to lower waterfowl bag limits or reduce the length of the season iin response to the spill.

DNR seeks public input on Winnebago walleyes

The Winnebago system walleye fishery will be the topic of four public meetings in northeastern Wisconsin in July and August.

“We’ve worked closely with the public to improve the walleye fishery on the Winnebago system for the last 20 years, and the result has been a tremendous success,” said Kendall Kamke, a DNR senior fisheries biologist in Oshkosh. “But it is time to take a thorough look with the public at the progress we have made in understanding and managing our walleye population and fishery and look ahead to the next 20 years.”

At the meetings, the DNR will present information on the status of the Winnebago system walleye popuation, fishery and management program as well as collect public opinion on the walleye management plan. The Winnebago system, which includes lakes Butte des Morts, Winneconne and Poygan and the connected rivers upstream, the upper Fox and the Wolf, is known nationally for its walleye fishery.

A 2007 study by the UW Extension and DNR showed anglers annually spend up to two million hours on the Winnebago system pursuing primarily walleyes in a fishery that generates a total economic impact of $234 million annually and 4,300 jobs.

Topics to be discussed at the meeting include walleye population and harvest estimates, adult walleye size and age distributions by sex in the spring from 1989 to 2010, the impact of spring water flows and levels on walleye recruitment, the walleyes’ movement and migrational patterns, and the assessment techniques DNR uses to develop population estimates.

The meetings will be held at 7 p.m. on the following dates and locations:

  • July 13: Shiocton, River Rail, N5547 River St.
  • Aug. 10: Menasha, Germania Hall, 320 Chute St.
  • Aug. 11: Quinney, Quinney Fishing Club, Quinney Rd.
  • Aug. 12: Fond du Lac, Marghael’s Hall, N7688 Van Dyne Rd.

FOR MORE INFORMATION CONTACT: Kendall Kamke (920) 424-7880

New email alert system to recent wolf activity available

MADISON – Dog trainers, pet owners and others interested in keeping track of recent wolf activity can now sign up for an e-mail or wireless service that will send an alert anytime wolves attack hunting dogs or pets.  The new feature relies on an easy-to-use service called GovDelivery.

From the DNR home page search for dog depredation by wolves and follow the simple instructions for subscribing to the alerts. It is possible to unsubscribe at anytime.

The alert will be sent to a subscriber’s e-mail and/or wireless addresses of choice and will include a link to details of 2010 depredations and a caution map based on the location of  any attacks.

Wisconsin’s dog training season opened July 1 and runs through August 31 leading up to the opening of the 2010 Wisconsin Black Bear Hunting season on Sept. 8. The bear hunting season runs through Oct. 12. It is legal during this training period for hunters
with a class A or B bear hunting license to train dogs on wild bear on public property open to bear-dog training.

“This new system will give dog trainers rapid alerts to problem areas with information that can help them avoid attacks on their dogs,” said, Adrian Wydeven, wolf ecologist for the Department of Natural Resources. “We will post new alerts just as soon as attacks are confirmed. We’ll also continue to maintain our wolf alert web pages with documentation of all attacks throughout the current season.”

Wolves with pups leave the den area where the pups were born and occupy one or more
rendezvous sites within the pack territory during summer months. A wolf pack changes
rendezvous sites somewhat unpredictably but will defend the current site and pups from
any hunting dogs that get too close.

Alerts on other topics are also available through the GovDelivery feature. At the DNR
home page select Subscribe to DNR Updates and select the topics you want to follow.
