Do you favor changing the minimum size limit from 15 inches to 18 inches and the daily bag limit from 5 fish to 3 fish for walleye, sauger and hybrids in 19 southern Wisconsin counties and other waters?
BACKGROUND: Proposed Walleye Regulation Change
This year's Spring Fish & Game Rules Hearings Questionnaire includes a question on this topic. An 18-inch size limit is expected to increase walleye populations in southern Wisconsin waters and, in turn, increase angler catch rates. Anglers will harvest fewer walleyes, but the total pounds of walleyes harvested is expected to increase over time.

Wisconsin Deer Management Unit Information Forums to Be Held Around the State
MADISON – A series of deer management public information forums are scheduled across the state in March. These forums are for anyone interested in deer and the most up to date deer management unit information.
Topics will include 2010 harvest summaries and recommendations for 2011 season frameworks, increasing hunter survey participation and new deer research progress. Local wildlife biologists will be on hand at each meeting to provide information on local deer management units and answer questions.
The meetings are intended to share information with the public about Wisconsin deer management and how it is applied in the local areas where they live, hunt or farm.
The local wildlife biologist will provide a brief presentation followed by a question and answer period. Some meetings may also have an open house format, allowing attendees to stop in anytime during the scheduled time.
People are encouraged to attend the meetings that cover the deer management units they are interested in (see the list of deer management unit meetings in the DNR Hearing and Meeting Calendar), but are welcome to attend any of the meetings.
People who are unable to attend any of the forums also have an opportunity to discuss the units with DNR wildlife staff at the:
Additional information about the forums is available on the DNR website
