THE VILLAGE OF FOX CROSSING MAY ALLOW HUNTING IN THE AREA AROUND STROEBE ISLAND.  CURRENT ORDINANCES BAN THE FIRING OF GUNS ALONG THE SHORELINE OF LITTLE LAKE BUTTE DES MORTS—BUT THE D-N-R SAYS THAT ORDINANCE VIOLATES HUNTING RIGHTS AND STATE LAW.  AN AMENDED ORDINANCE WOULD ALLOW HUNTING UP TO 150-YARDS OF THE ROLAND KAMPO BRIDGE—WITH RESTRICTIONS ON HUNTING WITHIN 50-FEET OF A STREET OR 100-YARDS FROM A RAILROAD LINE.  A PUBLIC HEARING ON THE PROPOSED CHANGES WILL BE HELD ON MONDAY.
