ST. PAUL, Minn. (KNSI) The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has announced the dates and locations for six deer hunter listening sessions this spring.
DNR big game program leader Leslie McInenly says, "we've been hearing that deer numbers are too low and this year's severe winter is exacerbating those concerns in many regions of the state. These listening sessions will give deer hunters and the general public an opportunity to communicate directly with DNR staff who make deer management decisions."
All listening sessions will be held from 7 to 9 pm. Meetings are scheduled:
March 19th Central Lakes Community College in Brainerd
March 20th Anoka-Ramsey Community College in Cambridge
March 24th Bemidji High School
March 25th West Central Research and Outreach Center in Morris
March 27th Conservation Club in Nicollet
April 1st Mesabi Range College in Virginia
