Save Hunting on the Upper Mississippi National Wildlife Refuge!

Monday, June 13, 2005

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is currently reviewing the comprehensive conservation plan for the Upper Mississippi National Wildlife Refuge. Included in this plan are proposed changes to the hunting regulations on the refuge. It is critical that all NRA members and hunters contact USFWS and urge them not to limit hunting on the refuge.

Among the proposals being considered are:

  • Limiting the number of shells a waterfowl hunter can carry to 25. This limitation is unnecessary and would unfairly target youth and beginning hunters who are not expert shots.

  • Complete closure of hunting in some areas of the refuge. Such closures should not be done unless absolutely biologically necessary.

  • Electric motor only areas that would make hunter access to these areas very difficult.

  • Limited permit only hunts and daily fees for hunter access.

USFWS is holding a series of public meetings on the plan, attend the meeting in your area and let them know that you want hunting on the refuge protected. Also, contact USFWS using the information below and make your voice heard.
