The meetings will focus on shooting hours and bag and possession limits for dark geese. Currently, there is a proposed regulation change involving increasing the daily harvest limit to 5 geese, an increase from the current limit of 4. This change would reduce confusion of regulations by standardizing the dark geese harvest and would provide more opportunities for hunters.

Another proposal to be discussed would be to change shooting hours to run from 1/2 hour before sunrise to sunset for each day of the week would reduce the complexity of waterfowl regulations, help promote hunter recruitment and retention, and provide more hunter opportunities with no early shooting hour closures.

The Cheyenne meeting will be at 6 pm Monday, February 7, at the Game and Fish Headquarters in the Elk Room.

The Torrington meeting will be at 6 pm Thursday, February 10, at the Platte Valley Bank conference room on 2201 Main St.
