Default Public Hearings for Proposed Regulations Scheduled for April 2011

Proposed regulations are under consideration by the Board of Natural Resources. The Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife Resources Division will hold three public hearings to receive input on the following proposals: 1) proposed hunting regulations for the 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 hunting seasons and 2) proposed regulations for establishing a fee system that captures revenue from non-hunting and angling users for use of certain designated areas on wildlife management areas and public fishing areas.

The purpose of proposed hunting regulations is to manage Georgia’s game birds and game animals according to sound principles of wildlife management and to meet public objectives for use of these renewable natural resources. The purpose of proposed regulations for establishing a fee system for use of certain designated areas on WMAs and PFs is to increase the self-sufficiency of managing and operating these sites on Wildlife Resources Division managed lands. Those interested are encouraged to bring these hearings to the attention of others who also may wish to participate.

Members of the general public will have an opportunity to provide input at the following Division sponsored public hearings:

Monday, April 18, 2011 (7 pm); Stuckey Conference Center Auditorium/UGA Griffin Campus (1109 Experiment Street, Griffin)
Tuesday, April 19, 2011 (7 pm); Coffee County Courthouse (101 South Peterson Avenue, Douglas)
Thursday, April 21, 2011 (7 pm); Georgia Mountain Center (301 Main Street, SW, Gainesville)
Any participant at the hearing may present data, make a statement or comment or offer a viewpoint or argument, either orally or in writing. Statements should be concise to permit everyone an opportunity to speak. Participants are required to register upon arrival and notify the registering official of their intent to give a statement. Those unable to attend the hearings may submit statements electronically through the Division website at (select “Hunting” “Hunting Regulations” then “Submitting Comments Re Hunting Regulations”) or by mail prior to close of business April 29, 2011. Written statements should be mailed to:

Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife Resources Division/Game Management Section; Attn: John W. Bowers; 2070 U.S. Highway 278, S.E.; Social Circle, Georgia 30025

These meetings are accessible to people with physical disabilities. Requests for sign language interpretation or other auxiliary aids should be directed to John Bowers at the above address by April 13, 2011.

The Board of Natural Resources will consider the proposed changes and any comments received during the public hearing process May 25, 2011 at 9 a.m. at the DNR Boardroom (2 Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive, SE, Suite 1252, Atlanta, Georgia).
