DNR Meeting in Alta for the 2021-2025 Waterfowl Season

October 07, 2019 9:40am

(Alta, IA) -- The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is hosting a public meeting Oct. 23, at the Alta Community Center, in Alta, to present its proposed waterfowl season and zone structure for the 2021-2025 waterfowl hunting seasons. The meeting is scheduled from 6-8 p.m.

Staff will present information including the results from the statewide hunter survey, the federal rules and guidelines that govern waterfowl hunting and the proposed season and zone structure.

The DNR is holding five of these meetings across the state. Feedback collected at these meetings will be reviewed before an official proposal is submitted to the Natural Resource Commission for consideration. If approved, the rule would have an open comment period before going in front of the commission again for a final vote.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service allows states to make changes to their waterfowl zones and boundaries once every five years. Any changes will be reflected in the 2021-2025 waterfowl seasons.
