Didnt know if you guys seen this or not, i just got the email, Thanks Advisory Council will discuss one buck rule ------------------------------------------------------ The Natural Resources Advisory Council will discuss the one buck rule on Oct. 11 at 10:30 a.m. (EDT) in Indianapolis. At the meeting, Indiana Department of Natural Resources biologists will present the results of a recent deer hunter survey as well as deer harvest data. The DNR will also provide a recommendation to the advisory council regarding the one buck rule. The public is invited to attend the meeting and provide comments. The advisory council will then give the Natural Resources Commission a summary of the public comments and a recommendation. The one buck rule refers to current deer hunting regulations that allow only one antlered deer to be taken per hunter per year with regular archery, firearm, and muzzleloader licenses. The rule was implemented in the fall of 2002 and has an expiration date of Sept. 1, 2007. Before 2002, up to two bucks could be taken by a hunter each year. The Advisory Council meeting will be at 10:30 a.m. (EDT) at the Ft. Harrison State Park Office Conference Room. Ft. Harrison State Park is on the eastside of Indianapolis. The gate entrance is at 59th St. and N. Post Rd. The Natural Resources Commission will have an opportunity to give preliminary adoption to the rule proposal on November 14. The public will be notified of the NRC meeting via Wild Bulletin. After preliminary adoption, there will again be an opportunity for public comments. A new single-entity Natural Resources Advisory Council was established by P.L. 95-2006 to replace the former Advisory Council for Lands and Cultural Resources and the former Advisory Council for Water and Mineral Resources.
