DNR Seeks Feedback on Rule Proposals

Send by email Printer-friendly version Share this

Using input from hundreds of conservationists, biologists and law enforcement officers, Indiana DNR has developed a package of administrative rule change proposals.

Every few years, DNR officials review wildlife, hunting and fishing regulations. In early June, more than 580 Hoosiers attended one of the 19 DNR open house meetings to make comments and suggest future changes to wildlife-associated regulations. DNR also received nearly 1,000 emails and letters with suggested changes.

After reviewing comments, DNR is proposing changes to deer and turkey hunting laws, fishing regulations, turtle regulations and state endangered species listings.

The creation of a fall turkey season, extending the coyote season, and establishing new brown trout regulations at Brookville tailwater are some of the changes suggested by hunters and anglers.

DNR officials are seeking additional feedback on the rule proposals. View all of the proposals and comments, and submit your opinions online at: http://www.wildlife.IN.gov/about/rules.htm The deadline for comments is Nov. 3.
