 DNR Public Hearing on One Buck Rule Proposal
----------------------------------------------

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources has scheduled a public hearing to receive comments on a proposal to extend the one buck-rule for an additional five years.

The hearing will be Tuesday, March 27, at 1:30 p.m. (Local Time) at the Indiana Government Center South, Conference Center Room 1, in Indianapolis. The Indiana Government Center South is located at 402 W. Washington St. in downtown Indianapolis.

The one-buck rule refers to current deer hunting regulations that allow only one antlered deer to be taken per hunter per year with regular archery, firearm and muzzleloader licenses. The current rule was implemented in fall 2002 and has an expiration of Sept. 1, 2007. Before 2002, up to two bucks could be taken by a hunter each year.

The Natural Resources Commission preliminarily adopted these rule changes in November 2006. The preliminarily adopted rules are at: http://www.in.gov/dnr/fishwild/about/rules.html

Public comments can be submitted by e-mail, written letter, or at the public hearing.

Written comments can be sent to:

Hearing Officer

Written comments must be received no later than April 2.

A copy of the public hearing report will be available at www.IN.gov/nrc prior to final consideration by the NRC. The NRC will likely consider these rule changes for final adoption in May. If approved by the NRC, attorney general and governor, the changes will become effective this summer.

Individuals who need reasonable modifications for effective participation in public meetings should call the DNR ADA coordinator, (317) 232-4200 (voice and TDD).
