Updated 1 year ago Edited from a Press Release

SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. - The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources (DNR) will hold 12 public meetings across the state in March to provide hunters, trappers, anglers, landowners and other interested parties an opportunity to review and comment on proposed 2016 hunting regulations for white-tailed deer, wild turkey, black bear and boar, proposed 2017-2018 general hunting and trapping regulations, and proposed 2017 fishing regulations. These meetings will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday, March 14, and Tuesday, March 15.

"These public meetings have been designed to use an 'Open House' format," said DNR Director Robert A. Fala. "This informal meeting style allows people to attend at their convenience during the scheduled meeting times, learn of proposed regulation changes, discuss these proposals with personnel from the Wildlife Resources and Law Enforcement sections, and comment on the proposed regulations and other wildlife-related issues."

Written comments from the public on the proposed hunting, trapping and fishing regulations also are encouraged. The regulation proposals are posted on the DNR website (www.wvdnr.gov). A link to the questionnaire pops up in the shaded box when the page is opened. The deadline for submitting written comments is April 8, 2016.
