Public Input For 2017-18 Waterfowl/Migratory Bird Seasons

Postby Jamie Feddersen » Mon Nov 07, 2016 2:58 pm

There is still time to submit comments on migratory bird seasons. Right now we are taking general comments on what people may or may not want in a migratory gamebird hunting season. This is an opportunity for people to offer suggestions like “I would like the duck season to begin in October” or “I think we should do all waterfowl blind draws through a computerized lottery” or “Is it possible to establish a special women-only dove hunt at Such-and-such WMA”. Things like that.

NASHVILLE --- The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is soliciting comments for its 2017-18 waterfowl and other migratory bird hunting regulations, including sandhill cranes. This is an opportunity for the public to provide ideas and share concerns about hunting regulations with TWRA staff. The comment period is open Oct. 15-Nov. 15, 2016.
Due to recent changes in the timing of the federal regulation process, waterfowl and other migratory game bird hunting seasons are now proposed to the Tennessee Fish and Wildlife Commission at its January meeting and voted upon at its February meeting.
Public comments will be considered by TWRA’s Wildlife Division staff and may be presented as proposals for regulation changes. Comments may be submitted by mail to: 2017-18 Hunting Season Comments, TWRA, Wildlife and Forestry Division, P.O. Box 40747, Nashville, TN 37204 or emailed to [email protected]. Please include “Waterfowl Season Comments” on the subject line of emailed submissions.
