The DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife wants to hear your thoughts about suggested fishing, hunting and trapping regulations in Indiana.

From July 15 to Aug. 1, the public can use a convenient online form to provide input to the DNR. The process is like a “virtual” open house.

To participate, go to wildlife.IN.gov and click on the “Got INput?” box near the middle of the page. The form will be available for use beginning July 15. A list of potential regulations will also be available on the “Got INput?” page.

There will also be two on-site open houses, one in southern Indiana and another in northern Indiana.  The first open house will be July 25 from 5-7 p.m. at the Spring Mill State Park Inn near Mitchell. The second open house will be July 30 from 5-7 p.m. at the Plymouth Public Library in Plymouth.

Input on specific suggested regulations can also be mailed to:

DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife

Attn: Proposed Regulatory Changes

402 W. Washington St., Room W273

Indianapolis, IN 46204

The July 15 to Aug. 1 public input period is the second input period by the Division of Fish & Wildlife this year. The earlier round was May 15 to June 1.

After reviewing input, DFW staff will consider all suggestions before proposing regulations to the Natural Resource Commission.
