The planning process has several key elements including:
- Assess wildlife population needs and hunter/angler desires, and set management direction and goals.
- Conduct statewide survey of hunter/angler opinions, conduct extensive public and agency scoping.
- Commission direction and involvement, Commission reviews draft proposal and options, and approves or rejects recommended plan.
The statewide, single and multi-year management plans, provide guidance and overall direction to staff and help identify both statewide and regional population and management objectives.
