Division of Natural Resources Announces

2006 Hunting and Trapping Regulations Meetings


  The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources will hold 12 public meetings across the state in March to give hunters, anglers, trappers, landowners and other interested parties an opportunity to review and comment on proposed 2006 hunting regulations for white-tailed deer and black bear, proposed 2007-2008 general hunting and trapping regulations and proposed 2007 fishing regulations. These meetings will be held from 6 - 8 p.m. on March 20 and March 21.


  “The agency will use the “Open House” style meeting format again this year,” according to DNR Director Frank Jezioro. “This format allows people to attend at their convenience during the scheduled meeting, learn of proposed regulation changes, discuss these proposals with wildlife biologists and conservation officers and comment on the proposed regulations and other wildlife-related issues.”
