“Wisconsin: Open For Killing”

12 Apr


Coming back from out of state recently I was reminded of the motto that Governor Scott Walker ordered to be put on all signs welcoming people to Wisconsin after he took office. The signs say:

Wisconsin: Open for Business

When I saw the sign, I thought about what Wisconsin’s true slogan should be and I came up with several ideas, especially in light of the recent Conservation Congress vote to add more killing.

Wisconsin: Open for Killing

Wisconsin: Where Humane is a Four Letter Word

Wisconsin: Where Killing is Conservation and Fun!

Wisconsin: You are laughing with us, not at us. Right?

Wisconsin: Mississippi North

Wisconsin: Proof that not every species evolves

Wisconsin: And you thought inbreeding only happened in West Virginia!

Thanks for Visiting! Come Back A Gein!

For the record I have lived in this state my entire life, minus military service. I think that Wisconsin is an absolutely beautiful state with many wonderful people. Unfortunately there are far too many people here who obsess over killing our wildlife strictly for recreation. There are also many people here for which cruelty is a way of life and it is even considered a “tradition.” This poisoned mindset is prevalent over much of this state and completely controls our lawmakers and government institutions.

Please share your ideas for Wisconsin slogans.

    Wisconsin: No diversify, turn around and go Bye Bye.

      You have lived here longer than I have. Has the killing frenzy always been like this? I have lived here for my 37 years and it seems worse than ever. My wife and I plan to take a couple days to go hiking. We originally planned to go up to the northwoods to do it. Honestly, I have no desire to support the economy up there because of the general anti-wolf attitude. We decided that we are going up to the Porcupine Mountains in the U.P. for a couple of days next month. Michigan is the only state out of the three in the Great Lakes that did not rush into a killing season for wolves. They will get my vacation money rather than Wisconsin or Minnesota. I hope others follow suit. It may not make that much of a difference, but it is our way of telling my state that my money will go elsewhere whenever possible.

    When I was a kid, all they hunted was deer and pheasants. My
    dad took me fishing for blue gills at Lake Mendota. I knew one guy who trapped muskrats. That was in 1968. There was no frenzy like now. I’ve been in Green County since I was 4. I was born in Kenosha and came from a family of non hunters. Michigan would love your money. Doc. and I spent a lot of time skiing in the Porcupines. I’m reading the Eau Claire[sp. it’s late] Leader just to learn what is going on. They have a good comment page with each article. I plan on commenting big time on it. My sister used to live in Rhinelander and she had trouble with her neighbors baiting deer. In those days there was no wolf talk because there wasn’t any.

      Love the Wisconsin slogans! Especially “Wisconsin : Proof that not every species evolves” I grew up in a hunting family & have hated hunting & trapping since I was a young child both from an eye witness perspective & because it just seemed sick & wrong. I had hoped to one day find others with the same perspective. In my area others with the same mind set are far & few between & are shamed into silence for their convictions. Thank You

        There are plenty of us out there but many are afraid to speak up. There has been this concerted effort among hunting groups to basically brainwash people into thinking that being anti-hunting/trapping is equal to being anti-American. They constantly try to push this garbage that they are the “stewards of the land” and other propaganda. Look at the terms they use to describe their activities. They use fluffy terms like “harvest” or “dispatch” to describe killing and even use terms like “recruitment” and “production” to describe animals giving birth. The hunting groups and fish and game agencies have made sure to desensitize people the entire killing industry.
