Nominations Being Accepted for Hunter Ethics Award
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/13/2020
Nominations for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources' Hunter Ethics Award are now being accepted. The annual honor was established by Bob Lamb, retired outdoors editor of the La Crosse Tribune, along with retired DNR conservation warden
supervisor Steve Dewald and retired University of Wisconsin-La Crosse instructor Jerry Davis.
"Ethical action can be represented in many ways; examples could include helping another person during a hunt, or taking steps to protect our natural resources," said DNR Chief Conservation Warden Casey Krueger. "Over the years, award recipients have
returned lost gear, helped others find lost game or assisted another hunter facing a challenge of some kind."
To be eligible for the award, the nominee must be a licensed Wisconsin hunter, and the ethical hunting act must have occurred in Wisconsin during the 2019 calendar year.
Written nominations must contain the name, address and telephone number of the witness or witnesses to the behavior that lead to the nomination and mailed to the Department of Natural Resources. The deadline to apply is February 14.
