MN DNR Looks to Make Changes to Waterfowl Regulations

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is holding a public comment period to voice opinions on changes to the waterfowl regulations in the state.

These potential changes have come about after a public engagement was conduced over the past couple months.

Much of the regulations are in place to provide quality habitats considering around 60% of North America's migratory birds travel through the state every spring and fall.

The department is looking to tweak some of the limits and regulations for the waterfowl season including extending shooting hours to sunset for entire season, increase the Canada goose bag limit to five birds per day and allowing state-wide over water goose hunting during the early September season.

The MN DNR will be holding a virtual town hall meeting this Thursday, April, 1st from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. for residents to ask questions about the potential changes and to voice their opinions.

The public comment period ends on April 11th, you can find more information and can register for the town hall meeting at the MN DNR Website.
