Since I'm sure that Bettie is ready to pounce...I thought I'd redirect folks to the appropriate source of information.

The Minnesota season has nothing to do with any potential season in Wisconsin or on the Greater subspecies in general. The Minnesota season was approved under the existing framework that applies to the Lesser sub-population that is already hunted in the central flyway. A Wisconsin season would have to be approved under a USFWS framework for the eastern or Greater sub-population. That framework does now exist and I believe that Kentucky and Tennessee are looking at potential seasons. You'd have to ask Kent about WI. There are no plans hard/fast plans at this time to propose a season that I'm aware of. Andy Paulios Madison, WI P.S. Similar to the wet summer of 2008 - Marsh Wrens have moved in across the street in the degraded marsh on the Yahara River. Last night Amy and I listened to them clicking/chortling?? away at 10:30 PM under the bright moon. #################### You received this email because you are subscribed to the Wisconsin Birding Network (Wisbirdn).
