DNR to talk about hunting and trapping regulations in La Porte City and Decorah

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources will hold public meetings on March 6 to discuss possible changes in the hunting and trapping regulations for this fall.  Two of the meetings will be in La Porte City and Decorah.

The DNR says that the possible changes would affect deer and waterfowl hunters as well as hunters and trappers who pursue bobcats and otters. They say proposed changes aim to stabilize deer numbers in some areas, potentially add a third zone for waterfowl and increase the number of otters and bobcats taken by hunters.

For a list of all the possible changes, visit http://www.iowadnr.gov/Portals/idnr/uploads/Hunting/proposed_changes2012.pdf.

The meetings will be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in Ames, Burlington, Carroll, Centerville, Clear Lake, Council Bluffs, Creston, Decorah, Fort Dodge, Johnston, La Porte City, Marshalltown, Onawa, Ottumwa, Peosta, Sheldon and Spencer.  Exact locations of the meetings will be posted on the DNR's website.

If you cannot make a meeting, comments can be sent to wildlife@dnr.iowa.gov.
