DNR wants input on fish and wildlife regulations


Staff Reports

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources is seeking input on fish and wildlife regulations, according to a press release from the DNR.

The DNR “wants to hear your ideas on fishing, hunting, trapping, and other fish and wildlife-related regulations in Indiana, including special permits regarding those topics.”

There is an online form, available at on.IN.gov/gotinput, and it will be available to fill out up until Sept. 15.

The form “Got INput?” allows you to comment on ideas from the DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife, and also allows you to propose your own ideas on any fish and wildlife regulation topic.

Got INput users must register with a username and a password. If you don’t want to use the online form, you can mail your ideas and input to Indiana DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife, Attn: Got INput, 402 W. Washington St., Room W273, Indianapolis, IN 46204.

For example, one of the DNR’s ideas listed on their website states, “Remove 312 IAC 9-7-6 Black Bass Section 6d. This would remove 14 lakes from a no minimum size limit category and subject them to the statewide 14-inch minimum size limit regulation.”

Some of the lakes listed under that category above are Brownstown Pit in Jackson County and Cypress Lake in Jackson County.

There’s a lengthy list of examples at on.IN.gov/gotinput. Again, you’re encourage to submit these ideas to the DNR before Sept. 15.

After Sept. 16, the DNR staff will evaluate all comments and determine which ideas deserve further consideration.
