Hunters Endorse Walker in Recall Vote
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 05/10/2012

As the recall election for governor gets closer, more groups are coming out with their endorsements. On Wednesday, members of Wisconsin's Hunters Rights Coalition endorsed Governor Scott Walker for his effort to become re-elected on June 5.

The Wisconsin Bear Hunters Association--which is the political action committee for the state's Safari Club, Wisconsin NRA chapter, Whitetails of Wisconsin, and the national riffle association--have all endorsed Walker, claiming he is the strongest advocate for hunting, gun rights and conservation.

"Governor Walker has been incredible for hunters in his first year and a half in office," said Joe Koback, chairman of SCI's state political committee. "He got rid of earn a buck, brought in Dr. Kroll to clean up the DNR mess, got rid of outdated gun case regulation, and appointed good pro-hunting people to DNR leadership."

WBHA President Al Lobner praised Walker for signed into law the Bear Bill, which former Governor Jim Doyle had vetoed.

"His administration has been 100-percent in favor of delisting wolves, and he recently signed Wisconsin's first modern wolf hunting season bill," Lobner said. "He also made sure that stewardship land purchases are open to hunting, fishing, and trapping."

Walker faces Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett in the election next month.
