The Department of Fish and Game (DFG) is holding a meeting to solicit public input regarding the development of hunting regulations for 2011. The meeting will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 18 in the Wildlife Branch Conference Room, 1811 9th St., Sacramento.

Comments and suggestions will be incorporated into draft Environmental Impact Reports/Environmental Impact Statements that will evaluate and disclose the potential effects of changes in the annual hunting regulations for black bear, deer, waterfowl, coot and moorhen, as well as the practice of falconry. DFG is preparing these documents in compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act.

In lieu of attending the meeting, interested parties can submit written comments either by e-mail to wildlifestrategy@dfg.ca.gov or by regular mail sent to:

Scoping Comments - Hunting

The black bear and deer draft documents are scheduled for release on Thursday, Feb. 3, 2011. The waterfowl document is scheduled for release in early June 2011, and the falconry document at a later unspecified date. Comments on the draft documents themselves will be accepted for 45 days following their release.

Yeah Jim, I just found this

Yeah Jim, I just found this too.  Funny how we have not read about it anywhere.  I think that if we are on the mailing list for the digest, they should send out a blurb about it.  then again, with the financial crisis this state is in, I don't know if they could afford stamps......

It's pretty amazing that I am

It's pretty amazing that I am a member of four hunting/fishing forums in California and this is the first I have seen of this!  Typical California politics!  "Well, we posted it!, It's not our fault you didn't show up or write in!"

I am interested in what they have to put out that is new.

You want to really get confused?  Try to read the California Fish and Game regulations.  There are some many contradictions and vague rules it's a wonder anyone can legally hunt out here!
