Earn-A-Buck Gone for Good?

The very unpopular program called "earn-a-buck" has gone one step further toward being eliminated completely.

On Wednesday wildlife officials in Wisconsin decided to indefinitely suspended the state's earn-a-buck program outside chronic wasting disease areas.

According to the Northland Newscenter "The Natural Resources Board initially approved a one-year moratorium Wednesday, but then board member Jane Wiley introduced a resolution to go further.

She says hunters are so upset over the program it would be onlya matter of time until state lawmakers stepped in and began managing deer hunting with legislation.

She says the board needs to send the Legislature a strong message that it is serious about halting the program."
