MADISON — Wisconsin outdoor lovers will get a chance to sound off next month on whether the state should impose mandatory classes for wolf trappers.

The Conservation Congress has included an item on its annual spring hearings questionnaire asking if people would support such classes. The item includes a summary blurb saying that trappers took 52 percent of the wolves killed in the 2012 hunt and 63 percent of the wolves killed in the 2013 hunt. But the blurb says other user groups such as bird hunters are worried about their dogs getting caught in wolf traps and trappers could benefit from mandatory education.

The questionnaire is advisory only. Imposing mandatory education courses would require legislation.

The spring hearings are set for April 14 at locations around the state.
