West Virginia Division of Natural Resources Announces Public Meetings to Discuss Proposed Hunting, Trapping and Fishing Regulations

The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources (DNR) will hold 12 public meetings across the state in March to provide hunters, trappers, anglers, landowners and other interested parties an opportunity to review and comment on proposed 2007 hunting regulations for white-tailed deer and black bear, proposed 2008-2009 general hunting and trapping regulations and proposed 2008 fishing regulations. These meetings will be held from 6 – 8 p.m. on March 19 and March 20, and the public is encouraged to attend.

“Once again this year, these meetings have been designed to use an ‘Open House’ format,” said DNR Director Frank Jezioro. “This informal meeting style allows people to attend at their convenience during the scheduled meeting times, learn of proposed regulation changes, discuss these proposals with wildlife biologists and conservation officers and comment on the proposed regulations and other wildlife-related issues.”

As in the past, written comments from the public on these proposed hunting, trapping and fishing regulations will also be encouraged. Anyone interested in attending the meetings scheduled in their areas should note the following list of meeting dates and locations:
