MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The state Natural Resources Board has decided to let people leave trail cameras overnight on public land.
People have been prohibited from leaving cameras overnight on Department of Natural Resources-managed land. But outdoor lovers have been pressing the agency to soften its stance as the devices grow in popularity.
Earlier this spring the Wisconsin Conservation Congress, a group of influential sportsmen who advise the DNR, approved leaving cameras overnight on DNR land.
The Natural Resources Board, which sets policy for the DNR, voted 7-0 at a meeting Wednesday in Madison to allow cameras to remain on agency land overnight.
