The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources wants a four-day antlerless deer hunt as part of its strategy against Chronic Wasting Disease. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has cancelled that hunt, reports the Pierce County Herald, saying that he is bowing to the wishes of the state’s hunters, who found the extra deer hunting season confusing and felt it took the fun out of the November season.
Of course, Governor Walker has already made what he thinks of his state’s employees abundantly clear. Why hunters who don’t like the added season can’t simply not participate in it is not as clear.
