Conservation Department seeks input from hunters

The Missouri Department of Conservation plans to hold workshops statewide to gather hunters' ideas about the timing of duck season and where waterfowl hunting zone boundaries should be located. This year, the department will consider duck season dates and zone boundaries for the 2011 through 2015 hunting seasons. The agency has scheduled 15 workshops around the state in March and April to learn how hunters feel about duck season dates and hunting zones that have been in place for the past five years and what they would like to see for the next five years. The workshops will be from 7 to 9 p.m. March 22 at the Knights of Columbus hall in Jackson, March 23 at the National Guard Armory in Dexter, Mo., and March 24 at the Justice Center in Kennett, Mo. For more information, call 290-5730.
