About 258,000 signatures needed to send bill to the Legislature
LANSING, MI -- With Michigan's first-ever wolf hunt well underway, a new coalition of conservationists and sportsmen is seeking to protect future hunts from a planned voter referendum. A group calling itself Citizens for Professional Wildlife Management on Tuesday announced plans to launch a petition drive for citizen-initiated legislation that would affirm the Michigan Natural Resource Commissions' ability to designate game species and issue fisheries orders.
