Okoboji, Iowa — The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is holding six meetings across the state to receive input from waterfowl hunters on waterfowl zones and seasons.
Orrin Jones, state waterfowl biologist for the Iowa DNR says that six two-hour meetings have been scheduled across the state.
Jones says that the northwest Iowa meeting will be in Okoboji on Thursday, November 5th at the Dickinson County Nature Center, at 2279 170th Street.
Jones tells us what to expect at the meeting if you go.
He says he encourages waterfowl hunters to attend the meeting because everyone’s opinion is important whether they like to hunt earlier in the season or later.
Hunter input will be included in a December proposal to the Natural Resource Commission of the Iowa DNR, for discussion and review prior to being sent to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service before a May deadline.
Hunters may also provide their input by sending an email to email@example.com.
