    Looks to be different than in years past. Not all in the same night. I like this as it should speed up the process as we won't need to hear every store in the state report in multiple times. Join in and give your opinion.

    DNR to recap hunting seasons, discuss possible rule changes at public meetings across the state

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

    “We want people to come out to these meetings, 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 meetings are open to the public. 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.

    These meetings replace the one night listening session held in late winter over the past 15 years.

    I don't know how well of a turnout Salix will have as we don't even have a full room for hunters safety. Will be interesting to see the numbers.
