MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is looking for the public's thoughts on permanent rules governing hunting in state parks.

Republicans passed a law in 2012 allowing hunting and trapping on state park properties. The law went into effect a year ago. The DNR put emergency administrative rules in place to implement it.

Now the agency has developed a set of permanent rules. The new regulations make few substantial changes to the emergency rules, maintaining park season dates as they stand and making temporary prohibitions on shooting from or across trails and requiring dog-proof traps on dry land permanent.

The hearings are set for Tuesday in Appleton, Jan. 21 in Eau Claire, Jan. 22 in Wausau and Jan. 23 in Fitchburg.
