The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is asking Iowa migratory game bird hunters what they liked and disliked about the 2016 migratory game bird seasons, as a first step in developing proposed 2017 migratory game bird season dates. 

Comments should be directed to Orrin Jones, state waterfowl biologist, at by December 1, 2016.

Migratory game bird hunters will have the opportunity to provide additional comments in response to proposed dates and bag limits approved for comment by the Natural Resource Commission. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has adopted a regulatory schedule which requires seasons to be proposed before the current hunting seasons have concluded.
