Participate In Conservation Of Wisconsin Natural Resources

PRESS RELEASE, also available as a .pdf document:

Wisconsin Citizens Opportunity to Participate in WI Conservation Congress Resolution Process

The Wisconsin Conservation Congress (WCC) is an independent organization of citizens that advises the Wisconsin Natural Resources Board and the Department of Natural Resources on how to responsibly manage Wisconsin’s natural resources. Each year citizens have an opportunity to submit ideas as “resolutions” to the WCC. In mid-January the WCC District Leadership Council agreed to support the annual Spring Hearings Resolution process via an online process.

Wisconsin citizens can submit proposed resolutions via the online process which will open on Wednesday, February 15, 2023. Resolutions must meet the following criteria:
1. The concern must be of statewide impact.
2. The concern must be practical, achievable and reasonable.
3. The concern must be within the mission and vision of the Wisconsin Conservation Congress.

An individual citizen may submit no more than two resolutions per year. Those interested in submitting a resolution are encouraged to reach out to the resolution review committee or their WCC County Chair for guidance in drafting a resolution. WCC County Chairs contact information can be found on the WCC DNR website.

The review committee contacts can be found on the WCC DNR website.

Additional tips on preparing a resolution are available on the WCC and DNRs Spring Hearings website.

Resolutions will be accepted until March 1, 2023. At the close of the submission process, the resolutions will be reviewed by a committee of WCC delegates to ensure they meet the criteria for inclusion and will be prepared for the online input which kicks off on Monday, April 10 and will close on Thursday, April 13.

For further information or questions, contact Terri Roehrig, Vice Chair Wisconsin Conservation Congress at 920-540-2775.

Winter War Memorial Match 2023 Feb. 11

Winter War Memorial Match - February 11, 2023

Winter War Memorial MatchThis match uses the world’s oldest designed bolt action still in active service. The Mosin-Nagant was originally accepted by the Russian Empire in 1891. The simple and rugged construction has proved itself useful in every part of the world. Our example is the 1939-40 winter war for Independence of Finland over the USSR where both sides used the Mosin-Nagant. Many of these rifles were imported into the US and remain popular with sportsman and collectors. If you have an interest in these rifles and their history please bring your Mosin Nagant and join our match in February!

Teams will be selected by random draw during signup and scoring is done by team totals using 100, 200 & 50 yard targets.

If you have any questions or wish to sign-up for this match please contact Jay Brown.

New Member Safety Briefing

NEW MEMBERS...

Upon joining DBCL, all new members are required to attend a New Member Safety Briefing (NMSB).

Effective July 1st, 2022, no new member may use the DBCL grounds or facilities until after they have attended a NMSB.  This decision was made by the DBCL Board of Directors at the June 20th meeting.

New members had previously been given up to 90 days to attend a NMSB but were to ensure they followed the DBCL Facility Use & Safety Procedures in the interim.  This policy has recently changed.
