DNR To Host Gathering To Discuss Wildlife Rules

By Staff | May 15, 2012

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is hosting an informal gathering of hunters, anglers and trappers to discuss the future direction of hunting, fishing and trapping in Iowa.

The meeting is scheduled from 7-9 p.m., Tuesday, May 22, in the lodge at Fort Defiance State Park, in Estherville.

Anyone with an interest or opinion on the outdoors is encouraged to attend.

The Iowa DNR will present a brief history on hunting, fishing and trapping in Iowa, including success stories and issues on the horizon facing hunters, trappers and anglers.

“We want to see a good turnout so we can have a frank discussion about Iowa’s natural resources here locally and across the state,” said Jim Wahl, Northwest Iowa fisheries supervisor for the Iowa DNR.

The meeting offers an opportunity for hunters, anglers and trappers to learn more about how their license money is spent and to discuss local priorities with DNR fish, wildlife and law enforcement staff.
