Wisconsin Snowmobile Registration & Trail Pass Requirements Have Changed!

Snowmobile Trail Pass
2014 Wisconsin Act 142, effective July 1, 2015, expanded the snowmobile trail pass requirement to include snowmobiles registered in Wisconsin and increased the nonresident snowmobile trail pass fee. Beginning with the 2015-16 snow season, all snowmobiles operating on a Wisconsin snowmobile trail or corridor must display a valid snowmobile trail pass whether registered in Wisconsin or another state.

Elk having ‘a great year,’ says DNR biologist

Gathered for their annual “Bugle Days Rendezvous” recently near Clam Lake, 65 Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF) members heard an update from the state’s chief big game biologist about the health of the elk herds in Wisconsin.

They also heard a positive report from the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest supervisor about expanded timber harvest in the national forest that will benefit the elk herd.
