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.
