SOCIAL CIRCLE — Hunters and other interested citizens are encouraged to review proposed changes to hunting regulations for the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons and make plans to attend a scheduled public hearing.
Some of the proposed changes include uniform statewide deer season, to expand hunting opportunity for alligators and bears, to modify either-sex days to manage white-tailed deer, and to regulate hunting and other activities on wildlife-management areas and other state lands. Three public hearings are scheduled to provide the public an opportunity to share comments on the proposed hunting regulation changes.
All meetings will begin at 7 p.m.
