DNR To Hold Public Meeting On Waterfowl Regulations
Annapolis, Md. (July 25, 2011) — The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will hold a public information meeting to discuss the proposed late waterfowl seasons and bag limits at 7 p.m. on August 15 at Chesapeake College in Wye Mills. The proposed seasons and bag limits will be announced in early August after DNR receives the late season framework from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
“Public input is an important step in the season and bag limit selection process,” said Bill Harvey, DNR’s game bird section leader. “Citizens who are unable to attend the meeting may comment by email, letter, fax, phone and an online forum available on the DNR website after the proposals are announced in August.”
The details on providing public comment will be included in the early August announcement. The finalized seasons and bag limits will be announced in early September.
