It was during the Deer / Elk Staff report.
It is time for the WMU's to be evaluated again.
It was commissioner Delaney that asked about the possible restructuring.
Dr. Rosenberry said that they have completed the staff input from staff at all levels. They are now updating maps with population shifts and other census data.
No WMU's have been identified for changes based on the actual process at this point. As I heard it - not saying much... - the process results will be presented later this year. I did not hear a specific meeting.
It is well known by all, that many want changes in the WMU's.
For well over two years, in addition to the other sportsmen, the forest industry joined in the call for making 2G smaller. Either two separate units or a sub-unit. They also mention 2F, 4E and 3B.
From the dialog, it appears the Deer Section is the lead section on this. But the other wildlife sections are involved. From the power point presentation, it was noted over and over - that these changes could affect seasons, bag ,limits, and management plans for all critters. Just a heads up if changes do occur.
Try to catch the rebroadcast of the Monday session with the staff reports. It is contained in the deer section report - about the third item in on that report.
The commission usually releases a press release on meeting video broadcasts. I am sure it will be re-announced on HPA several times.
Thre only drawback to the live stream rebroadcast is unlike a regular video, you can not tab into the part you want. It rolls from front to back - you have to wait for what you want and be ready when it happens. A limitation of the IT service the GC is provided by the state.
