Natural Resources Board allows overnight trail cameras
The state Natural Resources Board has decided to let people leave trail cameras overnight on public land.
People have been prohibited from leaving cameras overnight on Department of Natural Resources-managed land. But outdoor lovers have been pressing the agency to soften its stance as the devices grow in popularity.
Earlier this spring the Wisconsin Conservation Congress, a group of influential sportsmen who advise the DNR, approved leaving cameras overnight on DNR land.
The Natural Resources Board, which sets policy for the DNR, voted 7-0 at a meeting Wednesday in Madison to allow cameras to remain on agency land overnight.
