Lets hear your tales?????

Wisconsin has a statute that is used often on overbearing land owners.
We have a keep your feet law and all public bridges are accesses and anglers
can fish as long as they enter at public area and stay with wet feet.

It is Wisconsin State Statute 29.083(2)

We have a landowner in my neck of woods who is bad.

He made up a fake sign that looked like it was from WDNR

that said due to some migratory bird... fishing was not

allowed under his bridge. He calls the Sheriff's

Department so often they call him "The Cry Wolf" guy.

Last May 4 anglers called the police on him. In a drunken

rage he sicked his dog on the 4 anglers "all were fishing"

from a public bridge. It bit three of the four. He then

drove over the bridge at a high rate of speed and swerved

at 4 anglers causing them to dive off the bridge to keep

from being hit.

The land owner was charged and received about $2,000 dollars

in fines and the enhancer was added to his punishment.

If he has any contact with anglers and causes troubles again

his hunting and fishing privileged will be revoked for

FIVE years along with a hefty fine.

What a story there, Len. I can't remember any good ones off the top of my head, but we'll see what happens this season!

He should have been charged with 4 counts of attempted murder to start with.
