Who is Hunter Nation?
The Kansas-based lobbying group was behind this past winter’s wolf hunt – which saw hunters blow past the state-imposed quota. And they’re fighting in court to keep next month’s wolf hunt on track.
Last week, they brought 1970s rocker Ted Nugent to the state capitol to advocate for a new package of Republican-authored hunting legislation.
And according to records obtained by the Wisconsin Examiner, the group has also consulted with Frederick Prehn — the embattled chair of the state’s Natural Resource Board — to help him retain his seat even after his term has expired.
In a few short years, Hunter Nation has interwoven itself into environmental policy here in Wisconsin.
