Migratory Bird Hunting Season Regulations Meeting
The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) today announced that the Migratory Bird Hunting Regulations Meeting will be held from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Monday, August 5, 2013, in the rear conference room at the DEEP Marine Headquarters, 333 Ferry Road, in Old Lyme.
This meeting provides interested parties an opportunity to comment on the proposed hunting season regulations for the 2013-2014 migratory bird seasons. The DEEP will present proposed regulations and take all public comments. Final hunting season dates will be formulated shortly after the comments are compiled and evaluated. Hunters are reminded that the DEEP accepts comments on the migratory bird hunting regulations year round; however, this meeting serves to finalize the regulations and is held immediately after the federal frameworks are set by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
