MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Outdoor enthusiasts say Wisconsin should ban deer baiting and feeding in the days leading up to the November gun season.

The Conservation Congress, a group of sportsmen that advise the Department of Natural Resources on policy, held its annual spring hearings across the state on Monday. Attendees answered nearly 60 questions asking for their positions on a number of proposals.

The results aren't binding on the DNR but they do offer way to gauge public support for potential moves.

One question asked whether the state should ban deer baiting and feeding statewide 10 days before and during the 9-day November gun season.

Results the DNR released late Tuesday afternoon show 3,639 people voted yes and 2,180 voted no.
