Hunters - Be aware of trespassing laws
Deer hunting season is coming up and the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation is reminding hunters to be mindful of Wisconsin’s trespassing laws.  The state’s trespassing law states that you must have hand written or verbal permission from the landowner to hunt on private land.
Inholdings are the only exception to this law.  An inholding is private land that is surrounded by public land.  In this case, the landowner must post a sign to prevent public hunting.  Hunters are also not allowed to trespass to retrieve game they have killed or injured.
