Conservation Congress meetings happen on-line this week



Another spring-time tradition in Wisconsin is being altered this year, because of the coronavirus shutdown. 

The Wisconsin Conservation Congress normally meets on the second Monday of April, in every county around the state. 

This Monday, there are no physical meetings, but a 72-hour voting period on outdoor-related issues will begin at 7 p.m. on-line. 

The 2020 conservation ballot includes several questions which could affect deer-hunting season in Wisconsin. 

Hunters will be asked whether the nine-day gun-deer season should be made 10 days longer, with the extra days added after the traditional end of the season.

La Crosse County Congress organizer Marc Schultz says during a normal year, the meeting would attract about 60 to 80 people to Onalaska High School.
