Badger Ordnance Site
sled dog trails & working dog area

4/14/11 | Sue Maher | mysticwg@terracom.net

Update 4/14/2011

The Dog Access Regulations Advisory Question passed in 70 of Wisconsin's 72 counties.

One county rejected the question and the other county was a tie.

The total vote was 2,555 for and 909 against.

Now we have to make sure the DNR Land Use Study Committee gets the message, although we haven't a clue how long it will take to get the rules worded for public comment.

Wisconsin Residents: Help establish sled dog trails and working dog area at Badger Ordnance Site

Dog lovers are excited at the prospect of having a multi-activity dog use and training area in central Sauk County near Baraboo. A “YES” vote on Question 72 at the upcoming Wisconsin Conservation Congress will help create this one-of-a-kind facility.

The Badger Ordnance Site could be the place to train, work dogs, and hold other dog-related events. All dogs and their owners will have a special place to enjoy a wide range of activities including dog sledding and field trials of all kinds such as tracking, tunneling, hunting, and herding. Currently, there are almost no locations with the open space and facilities for all these activities to co-exist.

On Monday, April 11, there will be 72 public hearings, one in each county, starting at 7:00 p.m. where individuals interested in natural resources management have an opportunity to provide their input by non-binding vote and testimony to the Department of Natural Resources, Natural Resources Board and the Conservation Congress on proposed hunting and fishing rule changes and advisory questions.

You will have the opportunity to voice your support for a multi-activity dog use and training facility. Attend the meeting or just vote. Voting is quick and easy, just fill out a ballot marking the questions that are of concern to you.

The agenda and all the questions can be found at the 2011 Questionnaire link on http://dnr.wi.gov/org/nrboard/congress/spring_hearings/

Question 72- Dog Access Regulations at Badger Ordnance Site on page 43

More than a year ago four of us in the area (Sue Maher, Andria Blattner, Wanda and Robert Krauss) presented a resolution to the DNR for sled dog trails and a working dog area to be permitted at Badger Ordnance Site. We attended many meetings and went to many dog sponsored activities. We presented to the DNR petitions with more than 400 signatures supporting this. Now we have come full circle and need SDC 's help. Our resolution for more trails is on the agenda.

We need to get people to go and vote " Yes."

It will include not only Canicross, dog sledding trails, bikejoring, dryland rig , herding area, agility areas but many other dog sport or working dog areas,

Please contact Andria Blattner at 608 255-8001 (Madison) or ablattner22@charter.net  Andria has the full information and resolution copies.
