The state is considering a number of big rule changes regarding fish and wildlife. Among other things, the Natural Resources Commission will consider adding the ruffed grouse and the cisco to the state endangered species list.
The state might also allow air guns to be used during deer hunting season for firearms. The NRC has all the proposed rules changes listed on its website.
The NRC will hold two public hearings in central Indiana on possible rule changes. One on Wednesday, July 29 at 6 p.m. Eastern Time at Mounds State Park in Anderson and another on Thursday, July 30 at 6 p.m. Eastern Time at McCormick’s Creek State Park in Spencer.
Indiana Environmental reporting is supported by the Environmental Resilience Institute, an Indiana University Grand Challenge project developing Indiana-specific projections and informed responses to problems of environmental change.
