Don't Forget There's Another $500,000 DNR Piggy Bank

As the stench continues to rise from the half-million bucks Republicans slipped into the budget for a politically-connected 'sportsmen's' group, don't forget that another half-million DNR dollars annually is now set aside in the same budget for some lucky winner(s), according to a Walker news release:

"Also, $500,000 is being provided annually to purchase large fingerling walleye for stocking in Wisconsin’s waters from private fish farms.  Several states including Indiana and Minnesota have had success improving their walleye fisheries with purchases of walleye fingerlings from private sources."
Kinda rings a bell - - $500,000, awarded annually, with fuzzy eligibilities, for the sporting world...
