Wisconsin tribes put a hold on night deer hunting amid lawsuit
Posted: Thursday, November 29, 2012
Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission
has put a hold on night deer hunt in response to a ruling from a federal judge.
Judge Barbara Crabb issued a temporary restraining order in response to a lawsuit filed by the state. The state claims authority to regulate off-reservation hunting by Ojibwe citizens.
"We hit the pause button," GLIFC spokesperson Sue Erickson told The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
A hearing on a permanent injunction is scheduled for December 12.
