Group sues to restart Wisconsin DNR hunter education courses
MADISON, Wis. — A Kansas-based hunting advocacy group is suing to force the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to restart in-person hunter education courses.
The DNR canceled the courses as part of a stay-at-home order Gov. Tony Evers issued in March. The state Supreme Court struck the order down in May.
Hunter Nation filed a lawsuit in Marathon County on Wednesday arguing that the DNR has no authority to cancel the classes since the stay-at-home order has been invalidated and the state constitution guarantees residents the right to hunt.
