Have you ever wanted our Department of Natural Resources to make changes? Have you ever felt that you didn't have a voice in the management of the game and fish of West Virginia? Well here is your chance. The West Virginia DNR is having their annual meetings for review and comment on upcoming changes in regulations.

These meetings will be on March 18 and 19 from 6:00p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The nearest locations for the sportsmen of central West Virginia area are Harrisvile 4-H Camp on March 18th and at Parkersburg City Building on March 19th.

Some possible changes are as follows.

1) Opening up Stonewall Jackson Lake to a 6 fish limit for bass with only one being 18 inches or greater. The lake would also have a one muskie a day limit with a 52 inch minimum. That basically makes all muskies except a state record to be catch ad release at Stonewall.

2) Reinstating the early muzzleloader antlerless season in September 2013.

3) Making a state-wide two buck limit.

The questionnaires may be downloaded at   wvdnr.gov
