The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has scheduled six public meetings throughout the state to receive input from Florida hunters on possible changes to the state's hunting zones and corresponding deer hunting season dates.

The FWC wants to solicit as much public comment as possible, and everyone is invited. If changes are approved by the Commission, they could take effect as early as the 2010-2011 hunting season.

Meetings will be at the following locations:

Thursday, May 7
6-8 p.m.

Wednesday, May 20
6-8 p.m. (CDT)

Wednesday, June 10

Meetings will be open-house type format with FWC staff making a presentation, followed by question-and-answer sessions with FWC staff, giving hunters more one-on-one time.
