(DES MOINES) The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is hosting public meetings on March 6, to discuss possible changes in the hunting and trapping regulations for this fall.
The changes would affect deer and waterfowl hunters as well as hunters and trappers who pursue bobcats and otters. Proposed changes would stabilize deer numbers in some areas, potentially add a third zone for waterfowl and increase the harvest number of otters and bobcats.
The list of possible changes is available online at www.iowadnr.gov/Portals/idnr/uploads/Hunting/proposed_changes2012.pdf
Meetings in southwest Iowa will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. on March 6th in Carroll, Council Bluffs, Creston, and Onawa. Complete addresses along with the proposed regulation changes will be post on the DNR’s website.
For those who cannot make the meeting, comments may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
