Madison… Today the Wisconsin Court of Appeals, District III, ruled in favor of a property owner who was cited by the DNR for placing pumpkins and corn on his own property. The court held that the clear language of the applicable code provides that the law only forbids this when it is for a “hunting purpose”.
Jarchow commented, “I already received numerous inquiries about feeding deer from constituents. I call on the DNR to clarify for the public that consistent with today’s ruling people may place feed for deer. I also call on DNR to not waste precious taxpayer money appealing this ruling to the Wisconsin Supreme Court.”
