Draft Rule Changes for Restricted Hunting Areas

In response to stakeholder input and concerns, the FWC is proposing draft rule changes to provide clear, objective criteria for establishing restricted hunting areas (RHAs). Learn more about these proposed rule changes by reviewing this presentation.

The FWC is at the beginning stages of rule development and is seeking input on the proposals. FWC staff hosted a series of webinars Oct. 27, 28, 29 and Nov. 2 to provide more information, answer questions and allow opportunities for public comment.
