The mission for HARC is to provide a positive mechanism for hunters to get a collective voice heard by the WDNR in lieu of individual voices via the traditional "Hearing Process". As a Wisconsin Hunter, are you more encouraged and more confident that your concerns may "be heard" and acted upon by the WDNR under a collective approach such as HARC, versus the traditional "hearings approached" currently offered?

NEWS RELEASE Contacts: Greg Kazmierski President, Dairyland Committee of the Wisconsin Chapters of Safari Club International Direct Dial: 262-547-0535 Ted A. Wisnefski, Esq. Michael Best & Friedrich LLP Direct Dial: 414-270-2704 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE PROMINENT LAW FIRM HIRED BY WISCONSIN HUNTERS RIGHTS COALITION Milwaukee, WI (April 8, 2009)  The Wisconsin Hunters RightsCoalition and the Dairyland Committee of the Wisconsin Chapters ofSafari Club International have retained the prominent Wisconsin lawfirm of Michael Best & Friedrich LLP to assist them in eliminatingWisconsins Earn-a-buck and October antlerless deer huntingseasons, which remain enormously unpopular with Wisconsins 650,000plus deer hunters. The organizations believe that the WisconsinDepartment of Natural Resources may have exceeded its authority andviolated its own department rules in imposing Earn-a-buck andantlerless only deer hunting seasons. Hunters have been witnessing a steady decline in the quality of deerhunting in our state as a result of the Earn-a-buck and Octoberantlerless only deer hunting seasons said Greg Kazmierski. Along with hunters from around the state, Attorneys Ted Wisnefski andJoseph Olson of Michael Best & Friedrich LLP will be addressing ajoint committee of the Wisconsin Legislature on April 15, 2009 at10:00 a.m. in Room 411 of the State Capitol. Recognizing Wisconsinhunters increasing frustration with the DNR, the joint committeeseeks public input regarding the DNRs use of Earn-a-buck andantlerless only deer hunting seasons as deer management tools.Kazmierski stated that it is time to ask our state legislature tostep in and address the DNRs misguided efforts to further reduce thedeer population by restricting freedom of choice by hunters. The Wisconsin Hunters Rights Coalition and the Wisconsin Chapters ofSafari Club International are dedicated to preserving Wisconsinsstrong hunting heritage by protecting hunting opportunities andpromoting wildlife conservation and education.
