Proposed changes to deer regulations in Zone D
The FWC worked with stakeholders to develop proposed rule amendments to hunting regulations that would implement greater antler regulations and change the number and timing of the antlerless deer days (“doe days”) for Zone D.
These proposals are part of a larger project aimed at managing deer on a smaller geographic scale with greater stakeholder involvement using Deer Management Units (DMUs).
Draft rules were presented at the November 2013 Commission meeting and Draft rules were presented at the November 2013 Commission meeting and Commissioners requested an update at the February Commission meeting before final rules are considered at the April 2014 Commission meeting in Tallahassee. Therefore, this report is being provided as an update on the proposed rule amendments.
