New DNR Hunting Proposals 18 Feb 12

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is seeking citizen input on some hunting and trapping issues. The proposals would require non-toxic shot for rail and snipe hunting, add a third waterfowl zone in southern Minnesota, and allow snaring to begin earlier on private property in the farmland zone. Public meetings on the proposals will be held around the state in the coming weeks, including from 7-9pm on March 8th at the Nicollet Conservation Club. Written comments are also being accepted.
