WI conservation groups organizing against Walker budget

Glad to see this:
Hunting and fishing groups and volunteers who raise money for Wisconsin state park properties said Tuesday they are mounting efforts to stop Gov. Scott Walker’s proposed cuts to the Department of Natural Resources.
The budget contains deep cuts to DNR and UW science and environmental programs, so much organizing is needed:
Scott Walker's budget contains a direct, ideological and donor-driven attack on science-based conservation and citizen input at the Department of Natural Resources. 
The plan is a "purely political" threat to clean water and public oversight of resource management statewide, says the Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters.

I tried to find the website for "Walker for Sportsmen" to see what they have to say about this, but funnily enough, there doesn't seem to be one anymore.
Those signs were sure pretty though, during the recall.
