Give Input on New Regulations

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is accepting comments through Feb. 25 on a number of hunting regulations, including many temporary rules that would added to state game and fish laws this year.

The proposals cover a variety of areas pertaining to deer registration; deer licenses, deer zone descriptions, deer hunter selection, bear hunter selection and prairie chicken area designation.

"The majority of these rule changes are technical and have been in effect as temporary rules for the past several hunting seasons," said Jason Abraham, DNR season setting specialist. "We are completing a process to make these rules permanent."

A copy of the proposed rules will be published in the State Register and available online after Jan. 20. A copy of the proposed rules is also available on the DNR Web site.

Many of the rule changes were a result of simplifying deer hunting regulations. Those scheduled to be made permanent are:

* deer licenses for military personnel
* seasons and zones for taking deer by firearms
* zone descriptions for deer
* special hunt procedures
* either-sex permits and preference drawings
* taking deer by firearms or archery with early antlerless permits
* youth deer hunts
* youth special deer seasons
* bear permit procedures
* allow bear hunters second choice on application
* registration blocks
* prairie chicken permit area descriptions

Comments may be submitted to: Jason Abraham, Box 20, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN 55155-4020 or by e-mailing Jason.Abraham@dnr.state.mn.us.

Thanks for the heads up on this, I hope they start getting a few more consistencies from year to year. It has been getting annoying over the past three years for me anyway.

I read throught the 18 page legal-type document last night.  Nothing in particular jumped out at me.
 
Anyone else get a chance to look at the document?  Feedback?
