EAU CLAIRE, Wis. -- With the traditional gun deer hunt fast approaching, and bow hunters already out in force, conservation wardens are asking folks to keep the 14th annual Wisconsin Ethical Hunter Award in mind.
Nominations will be open through Dec. 15 this year. The award presents an opportunity to acknowledge the admirable qualities hunters bring to the field each autumn. Typically, the award celebrates selfless behavior, whether that means helping a stranger in trouble or making private lands available to new or disadvantaged hunters. If something a hunter does impresses you, please consider a nomination.
The following are requirements to be eligible to receive the Ethical Hunter award:
Written nominations should be sent to Warden Supervisor Steve Dewald at the Department of Natural Resources, 3550 Mormon Coulee Road, La Crosse, WI 54601 before Dec. 15, 2010, a deadline that is earlier than previous years.
