The Minnesota Department of Nat- ural Resources (DNR) is accepting comments through March 31 on a pro- posal to make permanent a number of temporary hunting rules that have been in place for at least one hunting season. The proposals cover a variety of areas pertaining to registration of g.ame, hunter selection, and descrip- tions of various hunting area bound- aries such as goose zones and deer area boundaries. "Hunters have been pursuing game under many of these rules for the past several seasons," said Jason Abraham, DNR season setting specialist. "One new rule would establish a deadline for the purchase of bear licenses by hunters who were successful in the bear license lottery." A copy of the proposed rules will be published in the Feb. 14 State Register and online. A copy of the proposed rules is also available on the DNR web- site. Many of the rule changes were a re- sult of efforts to streamline regulations, reduce paperwork and modify zone boundaries to better match habitat con- ditions. The rules are summarized below: Make a minor modification to the Lac qui Parle Controlled Hunting Zone boundary. Provide for registration of multi- ple deer in intensive and managed deer areas and allow deer registration by telephone. Restrict registration of antlerless deer in youth-only antlerless deer areas. Modify licensing procedures for bear hunting. Modify elk zone boundaries and establish a separate license drawing for landowners. Amend registration block bound- aries. Modify otter zone boundaries and fur registration procedures. Modify turkey permit procedures. Repeal obsolete goose zone boundaries and establish the boundary of a migratory waterfowl feeding and resting area on Upper Twin Lake in Freeborn County.
