Proposed Waterfowl, Deer Regulations Approved for Public Comment
The Natural Resource Commission of the Iowa Department of Natural Resources approved proposed seasons and bag limits for waterfowl and resident deer hunting during its monthly meeting on May 14.
The proposals were developed after a statewide public meeting over the Iowa Communications Network on March 25 where the DNR asked participants what went well last fall, what didn’t, and what changes hunters and trappers would like to see for this fall.
The proposals will be available for formal comment from June 10-30. Persons who wish to convey their comments orally may contact the Wildlife Bureau at 515-725-8200 or visit the fourth floor of the Wallace State Office Building in Des Moines during regular business hours. Please review the May 19th press release (Proposed Waterfowl, Deer Regulations Approved for Public Comment) for more information.
