DNR to recap hunting seasons, discuss possible rule changes at public meeting Feb. 22

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is hosting a series of town hall-style meetings where local staff provide updates on recently completed hunting seasons, discuss possible changes to hunting rules and regulations, and address other topics as requested. 

Locally, the Iowa DNR will be at the Franklin W. Olin Building, Room 102, Luther College, 700 College Drive, next to the Prues Library, in Decorah, on Feb. 22. The meeting begins at 7 p.m.

“We want people to come out, listen to the hunting seasons reviews, ask questions and hear directly from our staff,” said Todd Bishop, chief of the Iowa DNR’s Wildlife Bureau. “Part of the meeting will be devoted to discussing potential rule changes and collecting feedback as we work through the rules process.”

The meeting is open to the public and is the only town hall meeting held in the Driftless Region. Comments collected from these public meetings will be considered along with other related comments received by the Iowa DNR prior to proposing changes to hunting rules and regulations. Proposed rules will be presented to the Natural Resource Commission during a regular public meeting for consideration and additional public comment. 

Any person attending the public meeting and has special requirements, such as those related to mobility or hearing impairments, should contact the Iowa DNR or ADA Coordinator at 515-725-8200, Relay Iowa TTY Service 800-735-7942 or Webmaster@dnr.iowa.gov and advise of specific needs.
