Hearing on Wildlife Rules May 18, 2009
CONCORD, N.H. - The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department will hold a public hearing on proposed rule changes to specify the information that a hunter or trapper must provide when having fisher or otter sealed; to clarify that all Level II wildlife control operators (WCOs) must submit an annual report to Fish and Game, and to require WCOs to indicate on the report whether they did or did not trap. These proposals speak to the reporting needs of the department. They do not change the existing NH Wildlife Control Operator program in any substantive way. The hearing will be held on Monday, May 18, 2009, at 3:00 p.m. at the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, N.H.
The complete rulemaking notice forms, with original and proposed rule language, may be found at www.wildnh.com/Legislative/Notices_summary.htm.
Written comments on the proposed changes may be submitted by May 28, 2009. E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org (reference "Comment on Wildlife Rules" in subject line); fax to (603) 271-1438; or mail to Executive Director, N.H. Fish and Game Department, 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, NH 03301.
