Whoopers for Wisconsin?
Read the following situation. Your job will be to persuade the International Whooping
Crane Recovery Team to agree with your group's perspective, so read carefully, taking
on the role of
Fur & Feathers
Hunting is allowed on all three of the properties being investigated for potential
whooping crane reintroduction. Although the sites are separated geographically, you
and your hunting companions have frequented all three locations; each place offers
a unique experience and is better that the others for certain species.
Because a new sandhill crane hunting season is being proposed, you are concerned
about what this reintroduction would mean for you.
You enjoy hunting and fishing, pursuing every species that is legally sought. You
hunt with several other people. Admittedly, the hunter ethics of your group are practically
as diverse as the group members themselves. You know that members of your party have
taken animals illegally, and you are even nervous at times during the gun-deer season.
Some of your group lives out of state and are required to pay larger license fees
to be able to hunt in Wisconsin.
At your favorite goose and mallard spot, you have seen hunters shoot down two swans.
Only one of the shooters was apprehended.
